Motion Ball, Toronto’s Largest Young Professionals Charity Gala, with main sponsor, Air Miles, raised money and the profile of Canada’s Special Olympic athletes at Liberty Grand, Toronto’s premier event venue with traditional ballrooms.

As an unparalleled night of live rousing entertainment, dancing to DJ’s, unparalleled networking and special socializing, the Motion Ball Gala has become a must-attend event for young and attractive professionals in Toronto and across the country. The Gala was a great opportunity to mix and mingle with Special Olympians, celebrity guests and Toronto’s glitzy young professionals with delicious delights from the fabulous food stations, bountiful beverages, a special art gallery and a splendid silent auction.

Motionball is a not-for-profit organization that builds awareness and raises funds for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation (SOCF), targeting a “next generation” of supporters – Canada’s professional crowd who are not defined by their age but rather their mind set.

Too often, many exceptional people who have an intellectual disability are unable to realize their skills, goals and dreams because they lack the opportunities that many of us take for granted.

Motionball, together with its generous supporters, can create these opportunities and help these individuals get engaged in their own communities.
