With the pandemic still in full force, Shining Through Centre was not able to host its annual in-person Gala. However, the Gala Committee wanted to make sure that Shining Through still had an event to promote autism awareness in the community and raise funds for the centre.
On October 21st, Shining Through Centre hosted a Virtual Event for its families and the community. The evening included local personalities including Mayor Maurizio Bevilacqua, Juno award winner Robert Michaels, Tony Monaco from Z103.5, and Sportsnet host Joey Vendetta.
Thank you to everyone that participated in and helped to make the virtual gala a success. Thank you to the Gala Committee for making the event happen and to the dedicated families, friends and founding families that worked behind the scenes. Thank you to everyone that attended the livestreamed event. Without you, we wouldn’t be able to give the children we serve the skills they need to reach their maximum potential.
