Over the last several years I have been proud to be part of the annual Halloween tradition taking part in the Milton Haunted House at the Milton Mall.
This year once again we were honoured to be recognized as one of the many donors to the Milton District Hospital Foundation along with our main organizer Rick Di Lorenzo, Colin Best and our main sponsor Tiger Jeet Singh from the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation.
The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation’s 6th Annual Miracle on Main Street was a complete success raising over $200,000 in donations made up from toys, food, life essential products and corporate sponsorships.
From the bottom of our hearts we would like to thank everyone for their participation in this growing annual event. Each year it gets bigger and better and its all because of you! THANK YOU!
Mark your calendars for the 6th Annual Miracle on Main Street.
Once again we will be holding the Miracle on Main in front of Troy’s Diner in Milton. To date, Miracle on Main has raised over a million dollars to support Halton Women’s Place, Salvation Army, McMaster Childrens Hospital and SickKids Hospital in Toronto. Events like this could not be possible without the help and support of our sponsors.
This year I am honoured to be your host and MC for this magical time of the year. The list of celebrities and dignitaries continues to grow and I personally can not wait.
The fun starts at 6AM and goes until 9AM. Everything is FREE that morning so bring your family and friends along with an unwrapped toy to donate to Miracle on Main!
The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation is now making plans for its 6th annual “Miracle on Main Street” toy drive charity event presented this year by Techno Metal Post.
The donations raised each year go towards the purchase of toys, food and life essentials for families experiencing poverty via The Salvation Army, Halton Women’s Shelter and children suffering from sickness at SickKids and McMaster Children’s Hospital. To date the foundation has raised close to one million dollars in combined sponsorships and donations over the past five events.
“The objective of Miracle on Main Street is to promote the spirit of giving among all faiths,” says Tiger Jeet Singh Jr., president of Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation. “Sickness and poverty do not discriminate; neither should the spirit of giving.”
Miracle on Main will take place on Monday, December 15th from 6 a.m. to 9 a.m. on a closed off portion of Main Street in front of Troy’s Diner, 295 Main Street in Milton. There will be amusement rides, petting zoo, live entertainment and extravagant displays set up by the Halton Regional Police Services & C.A. Towing.
The event is FREE for everyone and all that is asked is for a donation of a new unwrapped toy.
Carols will be sung, autographs and pictures will be taken with wrestling’s living legend Tiger Jeet Singh, Canada’s most famous hockey dad Walter Gretzky, former WWE superstar Tiger Ali Singh, members of the Argos, Ti-Cats, Toronto Rock, Maple Leaf and NHL Alumni. Talks are also underway to have a return visit made by the Stanley Cup.
A second event will take place in the main lobby at McMaster Children’s Hospital in Hamilton on Wednesday, December 17th from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. The lobby of McMaster Children’s Hospital will be transformed into a holiday wonderland.
“We are absolutely thrilled to be hosting the Miracle on Main Street at McMaster Children’s Hospital,” says Jennifer Laughton, VP Development at McMaster Children’s Hospital. “The Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation are wonderful partners and are bringing the true spirit of the holiday season to the children that must remain in the hospital over the holidays due to illness. Our communities’ support of Miracle on Main Street for McMaster Children’s Hospital will ensure that every child wakes up to a gift at their bedside. We can’t thank the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation enough for choosing to support children and our hospital in this very special way.”
Yesterday was the 4th annual Toy Drive in Milton put on by the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation and supported in a large part by Troy Newton of Troy’s Diner. As Ive said many times before, you dont have to be in Milton very long to know about Troy’s. Great food, great service, amazing staff and Troy’s impact on our community can not be measured.
I was happy to help out in supporting the Miracle on Main Street this year and every year it just gets bigger and better. There were reindeer, Santa Claus himself came down from the North Pole to say hi to the kids, live entertainment by Milton’s own Jon Abrams as well as Prita Chhabra, a merry go round, silent auctions, the worlds most famous hockey dad Walter Gretzky and thousands of toys for the toy drive.
On a personal note, Ive known Troy for as long as I’ve been a Miltonian and he does have a heart of gold. He was asked by Jennifer Valentyne from BT yesterday why does he do this and his reply is simple but very telling of who he is. Isnt it what we should be doing?
Troy and his team help out at so many community events and when called upon, he’s there no questions asked.
I havent heard an official total yet from the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation of what the total amount raised but I heard yesterday from Mayor Gord Krantz that the total was close to $200,000!!!! WOW! That will bring more smiles to kids faces this Christmas than before. An outstanding effort by a group of outstanding volunteers. The team should be commeded for their efforts yesterday.
And to top it all off, yesterday morning in front of the diner Troy was presented with the Queens Diamond Jubilee award for his years of community support. It gets said so often but its so true with this…there is no other person that deserves this honour more than Troy. Congratulations and Im very proud to call you my friend. Check out the video below of the presentation live on Breakfast Television.
Just an update on the Miracle on Main coming up on Monday December 17th being held at Troys Diner downtown.
Due to a schedule conflict, Jimmy Hart wont be able to attend the event as was recently posted. We’re hoping the Mouth of the South will be able to attend future events but he regrets that he cant make it. Next time Jimmy !!! 🙂
Still there are lots of reasons to come down in support of the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation Miracle on Main Monday morning at 6am, at Troys Diner. There will be lots for the kids to do…games, magicians, Johnny Bower, Walter Gretzky, Tiger Ali Singh as well as Jennifer Valentyne from Breakfast Television.
I hope to see everyone there…and please bring an unwrapped toy for the toy drive.
