CFPDP’s No. 1 Fundraising Event
What a great success!
The 29th Great Valentine Gala was a fantastic event hosted by The Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled People. The event commemorated the 29 years of CFPDP’s efforts to raise funds and awareness to benefit physically disabled persons.
On February 9th 2013, over 500 people gathered together at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel to support physically disabled Canadians through a special evening of amazing food, wine, a special tribute and live performances by Randy Bachman, Adrien Breda, and artist Elaine Stewart.
The reception was a great start to the event! At 6:00pm guests gathered together as they enjoyed the sounds of talented Adrien Breda playing on a live piano, excellent beverages, a TELUS photo-booth and a fantastic artist painting live.
Master of Ceremony, Suhana Meharchand was excellent! Excitement filled the room as the Honourable Vim Kochhar welcomed everyone to the event. The excitement in the room grew as the Tombola Balloons were dispersed and bought for $60 with prizes ranging from $60-$3000. The Tombola Balloons are such a great addition to the event!
While dinner ended the awards began! The prestigious King Clancy Awards were presented to each athlete on stage to recognize their outstanding achievements in the disabled community.
TELUS and Cineplex were the grand recipients of the esteemed Corporate Awards. John Lutz and Honourable Vum Kochhar welcomed Joe Goodbaum, President of TELUS retail and Ellis Jacob President and Chief Executive Officer at Cineplex to accept their awards on stage.
“The Gala is a celebration of things that really matter- things like character, compassion and community.” – Kochhar.
As the awards ended the night continued as guests enjoyed the live performance of the talented Randy Bachman. Randy Bachman did a fantastic job!
As the night came to an end, guests retrieved their tombola prizes while others danced until the very last minutes of the event.
What a great night! Looking forward to The 30th Great Valentine Gala!
