The Markham Jazz Festival and The Markham Stouffville Hospital

Markham, ON - After a hugely successful festival weekend the Markham Jazz Festival is set to donate half of the proceeds from its Silent Auction to The Markham Stouffville Hospital’s expansion project. 

The silent auction took place during the festival’s On Fire! opening night Gala at The Markham Theatre. The 25-item auction raised $1,620 in total and the festival is donating half of its proceeds, totalling $810, to the hospital. Sponsorship Director Tammy Mang says, “The Markham Stouffville Hospital plays an integral role in our community. It provides care to a community of 110,000 people and serves a population of 300,000 people. The Markham Jazz Festival is happy to contribute to their expansion efforts.”

The 12th Annual Markham Jazz Festival wrapped up on August 16th and hosted 18,000 people over the two and a half days. The main streets of Markham and Unionville were filled with riffs and melodies of jazz quartets and trios, and as the sun shone bright in the cloudless blue sky, a relaxing and enjoyable weekend was had by all.
