The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan cordially invites you to attend our
8th Annual Maple Ball Charity Gala
Saturday, November 12, 2022
The Grand Hyatt Taipei, 3F Ballroom
The Canadian Chamber of Commerce in Taiwan, in partnership with MacKay Memorial Hospital and in cooperation with the Canadian Trade Office in Taipei, is honored to host its 8th Annual Maple Ball Charity Gala on November 12th, 2022 at the Grand Hyatt Taipei’s 3rd floor ballroom.
Join us as we celebrate the long history between Canada and Taiwan and help us raise money for those in need. Over the past 7 years, through the generosity of our kind sponsors, the CCCT has been able to raise over 2.5 million NT for MacKay Memorial Hospital’s Children’s Ward. We hope that you’ll be able to join us again this year and support a great cause!
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 March of 2022, we held our postponed gala scheduled originally for November 2021. In total we donated a total of $304,809 to MacKay Memorial hospital for their continuing efforts to combat COVID-19.
In 2020 we were proud to have donated $407,000 to MacKay Memorial Hospital for their efforts to combat the COVID-19 Pandemic.
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.
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 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 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 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.
2022 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.
CTOT – Canadian Trade Office in Taipei
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.
