Leafs/Raptors Alumni Gala-Tues.,Feb.24th,2015@R.O.M.
All was forgotten and forgiven during the annual Alumni Leafs/Raptors gala at The Royal Ontario Museum or R.O.M. Yes the Leafs are playing way below their capability and the Raptors are playing “So So” as GM Masai Ujiri said during his speech in front of the invited guest. Leafs GM Brendan Shanahan spoke to the crowd to reassure future success in “Leaf Land.” It was a great venue to have the annual event as the R.O.M. interior is a sight for sore eyes! The gala was situated right in the middle of gigantic Dinosaurs bones, ancient artifacts and beautiful architecture. The invited guests were treated to top shelf beverages and delicious food such as fish taco, prime roast and salmon. The crowd got a chance to Meet/Greet, mingle with the alumni and capture a photo opp with the likes of: Masai Ujiri, Alvin Williams, “Junkyard Dog”, Mugsy Bogues, Brendan Shanahan, Curtis Joseph, Darcy Tucker and Wendel Clarke. This was a super fun fan gala during a cold Tuesday night in Toronto. The crowd was warm and cheerful with the interaction with the sports personalities. Even though the evening ended early at 9pm, fans were viewed smiling as they exited the R.O.M. venue. We look forward to future MLSE gala and events in the Toronto area.
