Our 17th Annual Gala Fundraiser, held on March 4th, 2016 at the Embassy Grand Convention Centre, was an outstanding success and a great night with over 1200 attendees.
Shining Through put together an unbelievable Gala. The cocktail reception was outstanding, the dinner was exceptional and the entertainment included local recording artist Carlo Coppola. Our President Fred Santini's speech and the Shining Through video presentation were both extremely genuine and heartfelt. There was a special guest appearance by Maple Leafs great Wendel Clark who signed jerseys, which were later, auctioned off. Seize The Day and the live auction were great successes with many people jumping out of their seats to help support STC and pay for a child's therapy.
We would like to thank all those involved that made this night happen! Thank you to our wonderful and dedicated families, friends, staff, and volunteers. We also thank the Gala committee and the Board for their great vision and direction. We have a group of people here who got together and helped make miracles happen and helped these children get the programs and education they need to thrive and grow. Our centres would not exist without all of the people who support us and believe in us. THANK YOU!
The Gala Committee, Board of Directors and STC would like to thank Stefano Pucciano from Phantom Imaging, who once again donated his time and expertise to creating our wonderful video that was shown on the night of the Gala, and Robbie Belmonte from Photography by Robbie, who once again donated his time and expertise to take all the great photos for the Gala.
