An elegant evening full of black ties, evening gowns and Equestrian talk. It was A Royal Canadian Evening held at the legendary Casa Loma. The Countess Bathurst, special guest Commander Chris Hadfield and host Neil Aitchison were in attendance for this gala in support of Dressage Canada and the Canadian Dressage Athlete Assistance Program(C-DAAP) The funds raised at this gala went directly to build programs that advance and support the dressage athletes as they strive for excellence and success in Canada and on the international stage.
The Canadian Dressage Athlete Assistance Program(C-DAAP) is a sponsored program that receives contributions and awards grants to eligible Canadian junior, young rider and high performance Olympic-level dressage riders.
The evening began with a VIP Reception followed by welcoming remarks by Neil Aitchison. There was a silent auction throughout the night and Commander Chris Hadfield spoke to the crowd during the evening. The Live Auction ended the festivities for the evening.
