The 9th annual Miracle on Main was an overwhelming record-breaking success, raising over $300,000 made up from donations and sponsorships. The festivities started with the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation (TJSF) donating $20,000 to six elementary and two high schools in support of mental health, coding, wellness room, art workshop, breakfast program, literacy, classroom technology and inclusive classrooms.
“A lot of people coming together as one, is the reason behind the success for the event”, says Tiger Jeet Singh Jr., President of TJSF. “We are grateful to our volunteers, performers, public schools, Milton community, dignitaries, partners and sponsors both locally, as well as not from Milton, believing in TJSF’s passion to support children”.
Since 2009, $2.3 million made up from donations and sponsorships has been raised in support of Salvation Army, Halton Women’s Place, SickKids and McMaster Children’s Hospital. Since 2015, $50,000 has been donated to public schools via the Halton Learning Foundation in support of initiatives where funding falls short.
The objective of Miracle on Main Street is the promote the spirit of giving among all faiths”, says Tiger Jr. “Sickness and poverty don’t discriminate; neither should the spirit of giving.” Breakfast was served, amusement rides were enjoyed by all, which were accompanied by singing of carols and other entertainment. Autographs and pictures were taken with wrestling’s living legend Tiger Jeet Singh, members of the Hamilton Tiger Cats and wrestling superstar Tiger Ali Singh. Town dignitaries along with members from Halton Regional Police and Milton Fire department were on hand to show their support. Please visit MiracleOnMain.ca to make an online charitable donation.
