The Canadian Foundation for Physically Disabled People will be hosting their No. 1 Fundraising Event, The Great Valentine Gala. This year will mark the 30th anniversary of raising funds and awareness to benefit physically disabled persons. It has raised close to $13 million and has become a glittering showcase for the unheralded achievements of physically challenged Canadians everywhere.
On February 8th 2013, over 500 guests will gather at the Westin Harbour Castle Hotel to support physically disabled Canadians through a special evening of amazing food, music and wine and will include André-Philippe Gagnon as a very special entertainer. André-Philippe Gagnon has recently won “Entertainer of the Year” at the Canadian Special Events’ 2012 Star Awards and has been named The King of Corporate Entertainment. What a great honour it is to have him be apart of this years gala.
As always, the event will begin with a wonderful reception where guests will enjoy live music by talented musicians, drink excellent beverages and will get the chance to mix and mingle with one another before the night begins.
Following the exciting reception, everyone will be seated and a fabulous dinner will be served to all those who are in attendance. Starting promptly at 8:30PM the awards will be handed out and the winners at the gala will be invited to take group photos and say their acceptance speeches.
And finally, after all the awards are handed out the real party will begin. Guests will enjoy more fantastic beverages, the best live music possible and great company! This years Annual Great Valentine Gala is going to be the best gala yet and we at CityEvents are extremely excited to be apart of it.
