Why Our River Ball Committee is Excited for Moonlight Midway By The River!

March 20, 2019

We asked our amazing River Ball committee to share why they are excited for the magnificent, the marvelous, the monumental Moonlight Midway by the River, happening Thursday, May 9, 2019! From midway fun with games, delicious food, and drinks, to a performance by world-renowned entertainers The Modern Gentlemen, there’s much to be excited about, all in support of a wondrously wonderful cause, Humber River Hospital.

Mary Mauti – Committee Chair

“I’m excited to raise money in order to make a difference in someone’s life. I’m proud that patients and their families can feel the impact I make when they walk into Humber River Hospital, and when they walk out as well. I’m also excited for The Modern Gentlemen’s amazing performance.”

Enza Fierro

“Meeting new people for me is always the most exciting part of any experience, but witnessing the generosity of our supporters who give their time and donations is very inspirational. Witnessing the advances in technology and how they are being applied to our medical system is so exciting. This year, we can’t wait to highlight Humber’s amazing Orthopaedics Program! There are many layers of excitement being a part of the growth, development and expansion of our Hospital.”

Maria Bozzo

“I am excited to see people come together in support of a state-of-the-art Hospital, to help families in need. My husband and I were both born and raised in this community, so Humber River Hospital is very dear to our hearts. I think our guests are really going to love the Midway theme and carnival games that set this year’s River Ball apart.”

Dina Longo

Without leaps of imagination or dreaming, we lose the excitement of possibilities. Dreaming, after all is a form of planning.

I can’t wait for our dreams of this year’s Moonlight Midway to come to life! See you at the Midway!”


Donna Battiston

“Our River Ball gala always means seeing familiar faces and meeting new wonderful donors that believe in the great work being done at Humber and our future. This year, our Auctionista will be bringing so much fun energy to our fundraising!”

Cathy Baxter

“The women on our committee are very dedicated, genuine, and caring individuals with the collective goal of throwing a successful River Ball! The funds we raise always go towards very worthy causes in the Hospital. Our live auction is always so fun to watch; we are even auctioning off a $50,000 dream kitchen designed by Cameo Kitchens and Fine Cabinetry with top appliances from Tasco!”

Nella Contardi

“Moonlight Midway is going to be fantastic. This year we’re excited to profile the amazing work being done in Humber’s Orthopaedic Surgery Program. Humber River Hospital Foundation is awarding Dr. Sebastian Rodriguez with the 2019 Doctor of Philanthropy Award. He is one of many surgeons that make our Hospital a leader in healthcare.
