On February 26, 2016 at the beautiful Crystal Fountain Banquet Hall we held our very first fundraising gala! We had 243 people in attendance and raised over $5000 in funds to go towards supports our programs and initiatives!
Jason Kandenkary (principal at Nelson Mandela Park Public School) and a student, Latisha were our MCs and did a fantastic job guiding the night. We greatly appreciated the support of the Mayor of Markham, Frank Scarpitti who gave a speech on the importance of our programs in the community. Our very own Eugenia Duodu gave the keynote address with some students from our science clubs program- it was an inspiring night!
A thank you to the amazing performers and artists who shared their talents and to our event sponsors who gave their support. Also, a HUGE thank you to Chivaun Payne and our event planning committee who made this night a great success! We can't wait for next year!
