TD Bank Group invests in Waypoint

TD Bank Group knows that supporting their community is important, and Waypoint is thrilled to announce they are the $20,000 title sponsor of the hospital’s sold-out annual fundraising dinner for the fourth year in a row.
TD Bank Group helps strengthen our communities by making mental health a priority, sponsoring Waypoint's Fundraising Dinner for the fourth year in a row
Taking place Friday March 24th, An Evening with Séan McCann will feature a signature mock-tail reception in the hospital lobby, a delicious three-course meal provided by Feast: A Catering Company and a special performance and presentation by Séan McCann. 

McCann is a founding member of the east coast band Great Big Sea, an addiction survivor and Bell Let’s Talk ambassador. He uses music as therapy and offers a great story of surviving abuse, becoming sober and leaving the band to make a difference in the world.

“Our fundraising dinner is not just a way for our hospital to raise some much needed funds,” says Waypoint Board Chair Betty Valentine. “We choose speakers who have an important message to share. Séan’s inspiring story about overcoming addiction fits the bill perfectly and helps in our efforts to reduce the stigma of mental illness.”

In addition to the fundraising dinner’s title sponsorship, TD Bank Group has donated another installment in their generous $100,000, four-year commitment to support education at Waypoint through the TD Grants in Medical Excellence program.

“For three years now we’ve been able to use this grant money to support staff education and training in the areas of trauma and addiction,” says Waypoint president and CEO Carol Lambie. “Because of TD Bank Group’s generosity, we’re better able to equip our staff to provide the latest in treatment and care to some of society’s most vulnerable population.”

“TD Bank is thrilled to sponsor An Evening with Séan McCann fundraising event,” says Britt McKerrow, TD Bank Group Relationship Manager. “Waypoint continuously strives to find innovative ways to treat mental illness and improve mental health. We are proud to partner with them in strengthening our communities with this fundraising event sponsorship and the TD Grant in Medical Excellence.”
