The foundation at Jewish General Hospital in Montreal definitely has something to celebrate. They are holding a gala that has Michael Douglas as a keynote guest and speaker. How many hospitals will be able to tout this epic tale? I can just imagine the awe in the air in the halls of Jewish General Hospital. Douglas will be attending with his star struck wife Catherine Zeta-Jones.
Douglas is so grateful to the Montreal hospital staff for detecting his throat cancer and he wants to give back by volunteering to be a headliner at their upcoming gala. Douglas has agreed to also participate in a pre-gala meet and greet that will give donors an opportunity to rub shoulder to shoulder with the Hollywood couple.
I will be waiting to hear how much money is raised through this high profile event. One of the auction items up for bid - a round of golf with Douglas and Zeta-Jones at a club near their vacation home in Montreal.
Having Douglas and Zeta-Jones attend this event is a blessing and Jewish General Hospital is very fortunate. Opportunities like this are rare and almost never come free. This is truly a fundraiser's dream and I'm sure will be a hot topic in the health care community in Montreal for a long time to come.
Kudos to the staff of Jewish General Hospital for diligently detecting the cancer in Douglas' throat that many health care professionals had previously missed and to Douglas and Zeta-Jones for giving back.
I wish I could attend this prestigious event. Or better yet, be able to add this event to my event management list on my resume.
