The HDGH Board of Directors would like to thank each of our Big Night guests for making our first in person gala post Covid such a success. Thank you to our presenting sponsors RBC and In Honour of the Ones We Love – you have both been steadfast supporters of HDGH and we can’t thank you enough for your support over these many, many years. On this night in paricular we were able to blast past our $10,000 goal for the table challenge, raising over $35,000 for the Toldo Neurobehavioural Institute’s Snack Cart. This will support the stocking of the cart for a very long time and our team in TNI could not be more thankful.
In addition to the table challenge we had a silent auction, plant sale and wreath draw. These fundraising activities in addition to sponsorship and ticket sales resulted in the event raising nearly $138,000. HDGH would like to thank our guests who stuck by us even when we had to postpone the November event to the end of March – we hope it was worth the wait.
New this year we will be holdng The Big Party – a casual affair featuring live music, appetizer stations with beverage pairings and many of the popular features of the Big Night, such as the traditional ornament sale. Hope to see you there on November 10.
