Community-Led Events

Events are a rewarding and fun way to give back to our Hospital.

Community-led events are fundraising events that are put on by individuals or organizations in support of Guelph General Hospital.

From BBQs and lemonade stands to golf tournaments and galas, hosting an event in support of The Foundation of Guelph General Hospital, helps us to fund the highest priority essential patient care equipment.
