This year Shining Through held its 19th annual gala at the Embassy Grand Convention Centre on March 3, 2018. It was an outstanding success and attended by almost 1,400 supporters. 

Starting with a beautiful cocktail reception and antipasto bar, it was followed by an exceptional dinner and wonderful entertainment. A group of children started the evening off with the National Anthem, a wonderful reminder of the cause being supported.  There was a silent auction and a live auction that ended with a surprise guest, Roberto Alomar who posed for pictures and signed jerseys to be auctioned off.

Our President, Fred Santini, gave a heartfelt and inspirational speech and the video showed the tremendous impact Shining Through has on those we service. 

We would like to thank everyone that made this night a huge success! Thank you to the Gala committee and the Board for your great vision and direction. To our wonderful and dedicated families, friends, staff and volunteers who spent months behind the scenes creating the unrivalled experience that the Shining Through gala is known for, we thank you.  To everyone that attended our gala, we thank you for your financial support. Without all of you we would not be able to make miracles happen and to provide the children the programs and support they need to thrive and grow.
The Gala Committee, Board of Directors and Shining Through would like to thank Stefano Pucciano from Phantom Imaging, who once again donated his time and expertise to creating our inspiring video, and Robbie Belmonte from Photography by Robbie, who once again donated his time and expertise to take all the great photos for the Gala.
