Memories Made at our 10th Anniversary Dine for Dignity Fundraising Gala


Thank you to all of our guests who came out to celebrate the 10th Anniversary of our Dine for Dignity Fundraising Gala this past Sunday! We had an excellent turn-out; the hall was buzzing and full of energy.

We are so appreciative of all of the individuals, local businesses and organizations that have supported ESS and our Gala over the last 10 years. Thank you for the memories and for your generous donations and contributions in benefit of the seniors and families using our programs and services.

Thank you to our event sponsors, staff, volunteers and the team at Panemonte Banquet & Convention Centre to making this event happen, and to Flowers by Sophie for donating floral centerpieces year-after-year. We would like to acknowledge our Presenting Sponsors: Nurse Next Door (Etobicoke & West Toronto chapter) and The Altech Family of Companies (Altech Security Systems and Bedford Medical). Our Gala was financially supported by 16 sponsors, please find them listed here.

Special thanks to this year’s Master of Ceremonies, Jerry Howarth, Blue Jays Radio Broadcaster, and musicians Michael Vanhevel and Stu Harrison. We could not have asked for better entertainment. You helped us make this Gala one of the best yet.
