Masquerade Gala was a huge success!
On Friday, September 23rd Big Brothers Big Sisters of Peel welcomed over 300 guests to the Mississauga Convention Centre to embrace the drama of the 2016 Masquerade Gala and to pay tribute to our top volunteers, donors and community partners.
Corporations and individuals joined together to assist our agency in raising over $85,000 which will be directed to our core mentoring programs supporting children and youth in Peel Region.
On behalf of our Board of Directors, Staff and Gala Committee, thank you to all of our guests, volunteers, sponsors and award recipients. Your support helped us make this a truly memorable evening.
A special thank you to Formcor for covering the printing of the signage. We appreciate all you do for us.
Thank you to Tanya for the beautiful spoken word poetry. We were very pleased and impressed!
Thank you to Chief Evans for her assistance in the award presentation. You are always such great support at our events.
And last but definitely not least, thank you to the mystery behind the mask: the 2016 GALA COMMITTEE!
