POSTPONED New date: May 6, 2021

Due to the impact of COVID-19 on events, and after close consultation with our community partner, Villa Charities, we made the difficult decision to postpone Pioneers in Excellence II.

On May 6, 2021, Villa Charities and Toronto General & Western Hospital Foundation (TGWHF) will co-host ‘Pioneers in Excellence II’, a tribute event celebrating the distinguished accomplishments of Carlo and Angela Baldassarra and Dr. Antonio Finelli. The event will take place at Montecassiono and proceeds will support Villa Charities Foundation and Dr. Finelli’s research on minimally invasive surgery techniques to diagnose and remove kidney tumours, at Toronto General Hospital, University Health Network (UHN).
