2018 Visionary Gala: A Night To Empower Youth

On March 09 2018, we hosted our third annual fundraising gala at the Daniels Spectrum in Toronto! Thanks to the support of over 290 attendees and event sponsors, we raised over $8000 towards our programs and initiatives!

Tashauna Reid, CBC Host and our MC for the evening kept the audience engaged and excited with her incredible enthusiasm! We would like to thank our keynote speaker Celina Caesar-Chavannes, Member of Parliament for Whitby for attending and delivering a passionate speech on the importance of challenging yourself and making an impact. VoS Youth also got to share their experiences by delivering heartfelt speeches. We felt truly inspired!

The captivating evening came to a close with an Awards Ceremony to recognize the exceptional facilitators who bring our vision to life every week! We also had the opportunity to present Toronto Community Housing and University of Toronto Engineering Outreach with the Outstanding Community Partner Award for their dedication and constant support. We greatly appreciate Mitzie Hunter, Minister of Advanced Education and Skills Development and Brent Chamberlain, Ontario Trillium Foundation representative for attending and presenting us with plaques to recognize our seed and grow grants!

This Night to Empower Youth was a huge success thanks to all the speakers, donors, attendees, and incredible performers! We want to extend a huge thank you to our platinum sponsor Ryerson University SciXChange, our gold sponsor Crowe Soberman and our in-kind donors for their support! We appreciate your support- thank you for making The 3rd Annual Visionary Gala possible!
