The Toronto East General Hospital Foundation
invites you to walk with us in the
2014 TORONTO BEACHES LIONS
Sunday, April 20th
1:30pm to approx. 3:30pm
Queen Street East and Munro Park Avenue
As one of the largest Easter Parades in North America with an estimated 50,000 people in attendance, the Toronto Beaches Lions Annual Easter Parade is an event you don’t want to miss!
As in past years, the 2014 parade will include decorative floats, potential appearances by Toronto public figures and even the Easter Bunny. From Munro Park Ave., the parade proceeds west on Queen St. E. and ends a short 2 kilometres later at Woodbine Ave. It’s a great chance to represent your Hospital in the community.
Children are especially welcome to be part of the fun!
If you would like to join us for this exciting event, please contact
Charlie Borg for more details at 416.469.6190 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Wednesday, April 16th.
Here’s some more information from RHM Parent, Charlie Borg:
The Easter Parade is organized by the Toronto Beaches Lions Club and has been a tradition in Toronto since 1966. Approximately 50,000 spectators come every year and about 70 groups walk in the parade.
For our group at the Toronto East General Hospital Foundation, we will not have a float per say, but will be walking as a group – the adults wearing hospital scrubs and adults are encouraged to dress children in bright Easter colours.
Any wagons being brought along for young children should be decorated as well with an Easter theme. (We will be bringing one for ourselves).
Our group (including some of the kids) will also be handing out packets of flower seeds (for planting) at this event to the many adults and children that attend. The purpose of our walk is to simply have a group of people raising awareness for Toronto East General Hospital and having both parents and children in the walk make it really special.
I should also say that no fundraising happens for the Hospital during the parade – this is more about representing the Hospital in our community,
If there’s any further questions you have, please let me know and if you need more information about the Easter Parade or the Beaches Lions, you’ll find a lot of good stuff here:
