The Crystal Ball 2015@M.T.C.C.(Sat.,Nov.21st,2015)
This year marked the 29th Annual Crystal Ball Gala and titled: “Against All Odds”, recognized as one of the top Black Tie revenue generating galas held in Canada. This gala drew the who’s who of the corporate elite, the affluent, philanthropists and A-Listers out for an evening of unsurpassed enjoyment.
This gala stands out from the rest of the charity galas by virtue of the extravagant assortment of items donated for the silent and live auctions (from trips, a home make-over, a state of the art Jacuzzi, and many other great items) to raise over $1 Million dollars for “Against All Odds.” “Against All Odds” is a non-profit organization that is committed to serving its community for individuals that may require a complex range of requirements, by assisting children with disabilities integrate with other kids with traditional summer camps and other year round programs within Ontario.
As the live auction heated up, so did the silent auction as crowds gathered around the big board to see where they stood at securing one of the over 300 items. Other ways of donating to a great charity was the famous ‘Share the Wealth’ (with each of the 2 winners receiving over $6,000), and the 1,000 Balloon POP! with great prizes inside.
Special Thank you to Jennifer Jeyne (Manager, Communications) for the invite and allowing photo coverage for this extravagant gala
