Meet October 2017 WINNER!

CONGRATULATIONS to Toronto’s St. Joseph’s Health Centre!

You are our October 2017 WINNER for Our Annual “What’s Your Passion CHALLENGE”.  You hosted a Most SPOOKTACULAR Hallowe’en Street Festival and Costume Parade!

We had A BALL at the St. Joe’s 6th Annual Toronto West Hallowe’en Event!  A festive fun-filled afternoon of activities, games, treats and live entertainment for the entire family!  This year’s event proceeds went to help revitalize a new Kids’ Emergency Area.

Did You Know ~ Last year, St. Joseph’s had more than 100,000 visits to Emergency, making it one of the most trusted and busiest emergency departments in the province.  Yet, St. Joe’s Emergency was built to treat only 60,000 visits annually when our community was much smaller.  Today, now that the West End has more than 500,000 people, St. Joe’s doctors and staff are providing care to more patients than they currently have space for.

It was a delight creating a SUPER FUN photo collection from the pictures we snapped!  It was awesome to see so many smiling faces and such cute and clever costumes!  Find ALL of the photos we captured from the Toronto West Hallowe’en Fest 2017 in the Passion CHALLENGE Gallery on our website at  We hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them for you!  Like Us on Facebook to tag your photos!  Please CONTACT US to request the high res. files for print.

P.S.  If you celebrated Hallowe’en with us, your photos have been automatically entered into our WIN WITH OUR WINNERS Photo Contest!  Simply register your e-mail and stay tuned and VOTE for the Passion CHALLENGE October 2017 WINNER!

The live entertainment was spectacular!  I kept getting asked IF AND WHEN will the Treehouse Special Guests Splash ‘N Boots be on again???  AND if I could go backstage to get them! Lol  And the community performers were splendidly thrilling and exhilarating!

St. Joe’s is known for caring for kids.  But our doctor’s and staff can’t do it alone.  We need help from you, our neighbours, to transform areas like our Kids’ Emergency.  You can help revitalize our Kids’ Emergency are so that children and their families feel reassured and comfortable.

If you missed this year’s festival, you can still help their cause by donating to ‘BUY-A-BRICK‘  And make sure to mark your calendars for next year’s Toronto West Hallowe’en Fest!  You don’t want to miss it!  Check out the highlights and more photos from 2017 on St. Joe’s Website
