Mount Sinai Hospital is a research hospital in downtown Toronto, located on University Avenue. The hospital is part of Sinai Health System, which serves patients by integrating acute, complex chronic care, rehabilitative care with primary and community-based care.
In response to COVID-19, the Sinai Health Foundation needed to move all their fundraising events online. To prove this as a viable concept, the hospital needed an inaugural online event to test virtual event feasibility.
While Sinai Health had done online fundraising in the past, they had never put on a streaming event at this scale. As an added set of challenges, the event needed to be created and executed in under a month, while being coordinated entirely remotely due to the pandemic.
Clavis proposed an online event to raise funds for the hospital’s front-line workers. The event took shape as an 11-hour live stream held on Twitch, showcasing celebrities, athletes, politicians, and gamers. Clavis helped with the setup, talent procurement, and execution of the event. In total, Sinai Live raised just shy of $65,000.
