Most famous NRI wrestler, Tiger Jeet Singh’s Foundation Present $32,000 to Hospital

Press release

On August 24, 2010 was  marked an important day in history as the Tiger Jeet Singh Foundation presented the Milton District Hospital Foundation a cheque with proceeds from the inaugural Tigers Wrestle Fest, which hit the Milton streets during its annual festival.

Tigers Wrestle Fest was a vision of Wrestling Legend Tiger Jeet Singh, his son former WWE Superstar Tiger Ali Singh and their good friend Troy Newton of Troy's Diner in Milton.  A festival within a festival to showcase local amateur athletes while promoting health and fitness.

While the street festival in Milton has been taking place every year for the past four years garnering over 25,000 visitors each year; this year that number nearly doubled with the addition of the Tigers Wrestle Fest.  A wrestling festival with free admission, sponsorship proceeds going to support the Milton local hospital foundation and a professional wrestling demonstration is just a snap shot of what the spectators came out to see.

In keeping with the mission of the Tiger Foundation of supporting health care and education, the proceeds of the event were donated to the Milton District Hospital Foundation.  Even in its first year the event raised $32,000 to support the foundation.  The money raised for the hospital will be used to help the hospital purchase essential medical equipment not covered by the Government.  "This very generous and welcoming community is blessed with an abundance of talented, young amateur athletes from many fields of which wrestling is one part," remarked an extremely happy Tiger Jr. "We are pleased that the local community had the opportunity to participate, see our best amateur athletes in action, while supporting the Milton District Hospital Foundation.  With God's grace we are hoping to have TigerFest as an annual event!"

TigerFest would not have been possible without the support of the Presenting Sponsors Royal Park Homes, Andrin Homes, Century Grove Homes and Gold Sponsors Scotia Bank (Thompson & Main Street) and Ace Gifts Plus.

Not only did Miltonians and residents of the GTA come out in full force to see their favourite wrestlers Tiger Jeet Singh and Tiger Ali Singh, but fans even traveled from all across Canada and some even flew in from India and Japan placing Milton on the wrestling community's map.  The South Asian community came out to in droves to see their community icons.  "I can't explain how touched we are," recounted a visibly moved Tiger Jr. "The Tiger Foundation is all about supporting worthy causes anywhere on the planet; we don't discriminate!  We are extremely grateful to both the Milton residents, the South Asian community and all of our generous sponsors for helping us build the profile of our Foundation so we can continue to build awareness and support for deserving causes around the world."
