 "Whether you are an award recipient, nurse, student or CNO, the RNFOO Gala is the place to meet the who's who of nursing. Catch up with old friends, meet new friends, and have a wonderful evening".      

This Year's Location: 

Once again we will be celebrating at the lovely Parkview Manor on Barber Greene Road (which runs West off Don Mills Road, north of Eglinton).  Take the first street on the left onto Prince Andrew Place.  Enter the car park on the left.  There is still plenty of free parking available!

The evening will begin with cocktails and hors d'oeuvres  (the ideal time to network with others in the profession), followed by dinner,  with recognition of the Award winners (including the inaugural winners of the Dorothy Wylie and Josephine Flaherty Scholarships) and a silent auction.  The RNFOO Gala promises to deliver an evening filled with excitement!
