11th Annual Chief of Police Gala @ Beanfield Centre (Thu. Nov. 1, 2018)
by Kimberly Samnang
The Chief’s Gala is a yearly event hosted by Chief Mark Saunders in support of Victim Services Toronto. It is a celebration that highlights a highly valued volunteer organization that is respected and essential not only to victims, but also to police officers at the scene of crimes and sudden tragedies.
A high profile event that takes place yearly in the month of November, over 1,000 guests attend the Chief’s Gala including police chefs and senior police leaders from across the province, members from all levels of government, and members from the business community. Since 2008, over $2 million has been raised at the Chief’s Gala.
Victim Services Toronto provides immediate on-site crisis, trauma, safety and support services to victims of crime and sudden tragedy. This agency works closely, and in partnership with, the Toronto Police and depends on community support and donations in order to provide essential victim assistance programs to the City of Toronto.
We would like to thank Brian Moniz of the Toronto Police Service for this invitation.
