The 32nd Annual Mistletoe Ball & Auction in support of the Herbie Fund at The Hospital for Sick Children was held at the beautiful and prestigious Ritz Carlton in Toronto http://www.herbiefund.com/ with more than $200,000 raised for the Herbie Fund on Saturday night. It was the 35th anniversary of The Herbie Fund at The Hospital for Sick Children with a night of samba/salsa dancing, fine cuisine, live and silent auctions. Rio de Janeiro’s and Barry Manilow’s famous “Copacabana” was the theme and backdrop for night time festivities of the 2014 Mistletoe Ball and Auction. Gord Martineau was the host for the evening and many of his media friends were in attendance for this black tie/evening gown gala. A fun night and a great Cause at The Ritz Carlton and I’m sure there were some sore feet from the attendees who danced the night away with the amazing Samba band and D.J. We look forward to 33rd Annual Mistletoe Ball in 2015.
We would like to thank Jennifer Bassett of Bassett Events for the invite and hospitality.
