Oakville's Own: The Stakes

Client   / 

Oakville Hospital Foundation



Oakville Hospital Foundation (OHF) engaged Power Play as their AOR to help them transform their annual fundraising gala, the Candlelight Ball. After 27 years, OHF was looking to introduce a new experience to their stakeholders, that represents the best Oakville has to offer.


As OHF’s trusted partner, we worked with them to bring to life a series of world class experiences, under the umbrella of Oakville’s Own. In 2021, we introduced The Expedition, a virtual, round the world experience and in 2022, executed The Stakes! The Stakes was Oakville’s unique twist on the Kentucky Derby. This one-of-a-kind experience, featured derby themed food and beverage stations, interactive activations, entertainment and horse racing. More than 500 guests gathered on June 4th and raised more than $650,000 in support of their local hospital.
