Every year we help out a charity. In the past we have worked with David Foster and Friends and The Steve Nash Foundation. This year it was Starlight Starbright Children’s Foundation’s inaugural Sparkle Gala. I helped out with the decor and some of the details (but certainly not all…this is a talented group of volunteers!)
They held an uber-cool fashion show and cocktail party at Clutch/AutoOne. An old chum who works for Starbucks showed up as a part of the volunteer crowd and we got to meet some great new people. LesIsMore, one of my favourite jazz groups in the city performed, and everyone had a great time.
Thanks to Heather Burnette (who has the patience of Job I might add) and my good friend Paulette Garneau (Event and show producer extraordinaire) for introducing me to a really worthwhile cause.
Here’s what they had to say:
On Behalf of our Starlight Starbright children and families a huge thank you for helping make Sparkle 2007 our most successful event yet! I appreciate that you took a leap of faith with us in a new venue with new vendors but you made it work! We truly could nothave done it with out you…I look forward to working together again in 2008!
Here are a few pics for the event. Sorry, not sure who the photographer was, otherwise I would have done a photo credit .
