2016 Holiday Gala - Bringing the Nutcracker Theme to Life

MPI Toronto On January 4, 2017

MPI Toronto Holiday GalaThe holiday season officially started with the 2016 MPI Toronto Holiday Gala generously hosted at the Universal EventSpace on Tuesday, December 6. More than 400 guests celebrated the magic of the holidays with a festive evening of networking and dining. Guests enjoyed an incredible dinner from, who also generously provided wine during the reception and dinner.

Entertainment during the gala brought the nutcracker theme to life. Upon arrival guests were welcomed by graceful ballerinas and a beautiful classical trio. The drummers who led everyone into the dining room were as loud as the laughter from people reconnecting with friends. During dinner guests enjoyed a spectacular ballerina shadow dance performance, an electric violinist and a toy soldier mime who led guests into our first Holiday Gala after party. It was an opportunity for guests to socialize and enjoy the delicious desserts, including loukoumades and soft serve ice cream, back in the reception area.

We would like to thank everyone who came, participated and donated in our wonderful live and silent auctions, and gave generous donations of unwrapped toys. During the evening we raised $1900 through raffle tickets alone. Your efforts made a huge difference to the Breakfast With Santa Foundation and the MPI Toronto Chapter Educational Reserve Fund. MPI Toronto has been a proud sponsor of the Breakfast with Santa Foundation for over 15 years and due to your wonderful contributions, they have been able to operate the Foundation plus add more programs to positively impact the lives of children in distress in our community. Thank you for making children’s dreams come true!
