Patron's Message

Dear Friends, we hope you are doing well. It feels like a long time since we ‘broke bread’ together…when we gathered in the beautiful Ritz Carlton on a spectacular Spring Day to welcome the cherry blossoms, great aspirations and another outstanding UWI Toronto Benefit Gala. For 10 years we hugged and greeted each other but all has changed and this time we welcome you warmly to the UWI Toronto Benefit Awards. We gather again under the theme LIGHT, LEARNING, LIBERTY, and recognize our collective effort in Meeting the Moment with gratitude.
