The Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled Persons (CFPDP) will celebrate the 33rd year of hosting The Great Valentine Gala, one of the foundation’s largest fundraising events, on Saturday, February 11, 2017.


Since 1985, the gala has had over 22,000 attendees and has raised over $25 million. Thanks to Toronto Businessman, philanthropist and CFPDP founder, Vim Kochhar, The Great Valentine Gala has become an annual tradition in celebrating the accomplishments and achievements of physically challenged Canadians everywhere.

This year, with approximately 500 guests in attendance, balloons will be sold at a value of $60 in the exciting Tombola raffle. Guests can purchase a balloon at the raffle where they gain a chance to win a mystery prize.


All attendees are welcome to attend a beautiful reception before the main event where they can have a drink or two as well as mix and mingle with new and familiar faces. Following the reception, a fabulous dinner will be served promptly at 7:00 PM and afterwards a night of awards and great music presented by The Caverners, a Beatles tribute band, can be enjoyed.

After the awards are handed out and all the group photos are taken, a real party to end the night will begin where guests can enjoy great beverages, great food and best of all great company!

Schmooze just keeps getting better and better! This past Friday’s event was a huge success with over 200 people in attendance. The rooftop was transformed into a colourful, lantern decorated garden, complete with flowers and balloons giving the patio the perfect summer feel.

27761950656_9a78c36458_zMiller Genuine Draft sponsored the event providing complimentary drinks to guests who arrived before 6:30 p.m., which was the perfect start to the night. The sun was shining bright and warm, making the snow-cone machine a massive hit. Guests were also treated to complimentary barbecue courtesy of Treeline Catering, which included sliders and skewers. A new addition to this Schmooze event was the classic party game of beer pong, set up to the right of the bar. The game was played by many guests, and even created a spectator gathering.


Guests created memories by taking pictures for our social media contest, the winner receiving a $25 Sweet Jesus ice cream gift card. To enter, contestants posted a picture using the hashtag, #MaisonAfterWorkSchmooze. The winner chosen by the most number of likes on the post. Thank you to everyone who participated and congratulations to our winner @paola_latronico!


On behalf of CityEvents, we would like to thank everyone who came to Schmooze with us and made this yet another successful event. Don’t forget to join us Friday, August 12 for more after-work fun on one of Toronto’s best rooftop patios!
