Not only is Holi a time of celebration and unofficially marks the beginning of spring; it is a time when our community comes together to support local health care, according to Dr. Gurjit Bajwa and Dr. Vandana Ahluwalia, who are committee co-chairs of the Holi Gala committee for the Osler Foundation Office.

Tickets are on sale now for the gala. Organizers are hoping to raise more than $450,000 for redevelopment and equipment at Osler’s three hospitals: Brampton Civic Hospital, Etobicoke General Hospital and Brampton’s Peel Memorial Centre for Integrated Health and Wellness.
