Last year's Gala event was attended by more than 300 guests and is an important fund raiser for the Hall of Fame.
"We are particularly pleased that we have representation from Western Canada , the Maritimes , Ontario and Quebec further reflecting the true national scope of the CMHF," concluded Dr. Scully.
The Hall of Fame was initially introduced in 1993 and now has over 100 inductees from across Canada. In addition, an international category was added two years ago and the 2012 candidates are yet to be announced.
