The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan cordially invites you to attend our
6th Annual Maple Ball Charity Gala
Saturday, October 24, 2020
The Grand Hyatt Taipei, 3F Ballroom
The Maple Ball for charity is the largest formal event of the year hosted by the Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan. Our event is run in partnership with MacKay Memorial Hospital and the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei to raise money for the hospital’s Children’s Ward.
It is a celebration of the strong links between Canada and Taiwan dating back more than 100 years when Dr. George Leslie MacKay first began his missionary work in Taiwan.
In 2015, more than 220 people joined the event which included wonderful food, live music, an opera performance and lots of new friends and memories. Almost $10,000 CDN was raised at the event for charity.
In 2016, we raised just under $16,500 CDN for the Children’s Ward, thanks to a wonderful 30th anniversary celebration with the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei.
In 2017, we raised over $460,000 NT for a new bone marrow transplantation ward in the Children’s Wing at MacKay Memorial Hospital. This was our most successful year to date.
In 2018, we raised over $290,000 NT for a the MacKay Memorial Hospital Children’s Ward to assist children with rare diseases. This brought the CCCT’s total donation to MacKay Memorial Hospital close to $1.5 million over the years for children in need.
In 2019, we raised over $360,000 NT for supporting International Humanitarian Aid. This brought the CCCT’s total donation to MacKay Memorial Hospital closed to $1.9 million.
What can we achieve in 2020?
We have no limits, only love to show for our community here in Taiwan and for MacKay Memorial Hospital, which is one of the most well-known and respected private hospitals in Taiwan.
Its long standing service to the people of Taiwan have made it a great beneficiary, so please come out for a good cause.
2020 Maple Ball Organizers
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Taiwan was established in 1983 by a group of Canadians in answer to the absence of official representation in Taiwan at that time.
Since its inception, the CCCT has grown from an organization providing basic support to Canadians on the island to a Chamber serving the needs of all Canadians and friends of Canada in Taiwan.
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce Taiwan is delighted to be hosting and sponsoring the 6th Annual Maple Ball Charity Gala.
The Canadian Trade Office in Taipei was first established in 1986 with a mandate to facilitate trade ties between Canada and Taiwan. Since then, relations between Canada and Taiwan have strengthened and diversified considerably making Taiwan one of Canada’s most significant partners in Asia-Pacific.
MacKay Memorial Hospital (馬偕紀念醫院) is one of the largest medical centers in Taiwan.
It was established on December 26, 1912. The hospital is a private Christian hospital, mostly associated with George Leslie Mackay, the first modern missionary to northern Taiwan.
Dr. MacKay came from Oxford Country, Ontario, Canada. The hospital is deeply rooted in the Presbyterian tradition and under the spiritual guidance of the Presbyterian Church in Taiwan.
We are announcing more sponsors as they join us in this celebration of love.
