The Joy of Aging is a unique annual event for life-loving women over 40 who cherish their health and intend to keep it. We know you care as much about your mind as you do about your body. By popular demand, our focus this year is- Your Skin Has Genes Too. You’ll laugh, you’ll be inspired and you’ll enjoy a very special morning out featuring a delicious healthy breakfast, live music, sponsor booths featuring interesting services and products, an outstanding silent auction and fabulous gift bags.
Launched in 2009, organized by the Richmond Hill branch of Assante Capital Management Ltd. and run entirely by passionate volunteers, Joy of Aging has to date raised close to $342,000 for Mackenzie Richmond Hill Hospital (formerly York Central Hospital) and our fast-growing audience reached 300 last year. Join us, bring your friends and treat yourself to a revitalizing morning created with you in mind.
Proceeds from the 11th Annual Joy of Aging event will continue to fund the new DASA Program (domestic abuse and sexual assault care centre) at Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital. The Domestic Abuse and Sexual Assault (DASA) Care Centre of York Region in the Magna Emergency at Mackenzie Vaughan Hospital will provide specialized care and support to women, men and children experiencing domestic violence, sexual assault, elder abuse and human trafficking. A specially trained on-call team of registered nurses, social workers and physicians will provide 24/7 medical forensic care in a secure and private environment.
