18th Annual Gala Fundraiser Was An Outstanding Success

Our 18th Annual Gala Fundraiser, held on March 3rd, 2017 at the Embassy Grand Convention Centre, was an outstanding success and a fun filled night with over 1200 attendees.  Thank you to everyone who joined us and made such a great night possible.

This year's Gala was another incredible night including dinner, drinks, and exceptional entertainment.  Our President Fred Santini's speech and the Shining Through video presentation were profound and were well received.  There was a special guest appearance by former Maple Leafs Captain Doug Gilmour, who posed for pictures as well as signed jerseys, which were later auctioned off.  There were also incredible auction prizes, which can be seen below.  Seize the Day was another huge success with many people enthusiastically donating to help support STC and pay for a child's therapy.

We would like to say 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 from the bottom of our hearts.

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.

Please pass on Stefano or Robbie's contact information to anyone who you may know that is looking for video/photography services:
