Last night, the Car Karaoke (www.carkaraoke.ca) Virtual Award Ceremony was streamed LIVE on YouTube and the total funds raised and contest winners were announced by our co-hosts Cheryl McEwen and Dr. Michael Baker.
Initially, the monetary target for the Car Karaoke for Stem Cells fundraiser presented by Porsche Centre Downtown Toronto and the McEwen Stem Cell Institute at UHN was $350,000, however, to date, we have raised over $546,000 for this most important cause. What an amazing effort by everyone involved!
This initiative has brought together investors and philanthropists to convert the incredible potential of stem cells into new therapies. They have assembled some of the best medical researchers from around the world and are moving into the future with lifesaving treatments for patients with heart disease by giving new functioning cells to restore function to the scar tissue in damaged hearts.
Porsche Centre Downtown Toronto partnered with the McEwen Stem Cell Institute to help bring this unique virtual fundraising event to life and we hope you found it just as thrilling and electric as the all-new, all-electric Porsche Taycan!
