A big shout out to Lindsay Kirsh for the great hospitality and invite. The Spoke Club was the location for the third annual Gala of Lights event. The Gala of Light is hosted by Street Haven at the Crossroads, a not-for-profit community service organization which provides a multitude of services to women in the G.T.A. area. The Gala of Lights event included a silent auction, live performances by freestyle violinist Yosvani Castaneda, musician Shawnee and internationally-renowned DJ Lissa Monet. Some of the donors for the evening included: Mercedes-Benz Canada, The Toronto Blue Jays, Buca Restaurant and BarreWorks. The gala was an evening of educating Toronto’s own people about the state of underprivileged women over cocktails, hors d’oeuvres, live entertainment and special guest appearances such as that by mayoral candidate Olivia Chow.
