2015 Gala Event - "Masquerade"
There is no "Masquerading" the fact that Ailsa Craig and surrounding area has a huge heart. Women on a Mission's 9th Annual Women's Gala dinner was once again wildly successful through the generous contribution and support of the community.
Over 250 women gathered at the Ailsa Craig Community Centre on Saturday, May 2, 2015 to support our 2015 major recipient, 24 year-old Jessica Burgess. Jessica is a resident of Ailsa Craig who is battling breast cancer. WOAM is privileged to have the opportunity to support Jessica.
Thank you to our generous Corporate Donors;
North Middlesex Firefighters Association, Aviva Insurance, Intact Insurance, OPP Association Branch 2, HMS Insurance and Financial Service, Kumon Bright's Grove and Strathroy Kumon Math and Reading Centre, Municipality of North Middlesex, and Susan Bos and family.
And to all our donors to the Silent Auction.
It was a rousing night of entertainment, fun and laughter. As always we are thankful to have such wonderful volunteers.
Thank you to the Municipality of North Middlesex for donating the use of the hall.
A huge shout-out to our dedicated servers from the Ailsa Craig, Parkhill, London and Kingston Fire Departments, Auxiliary OPP and OPP. You make the night so much fun!
Thank you to the Ailsa Craig Lions for tending bar. You made a mean "Gondolier"!
A highlight of our night is always the divine dinner that Laurie Engels and her staff prepare. And the desserts!!!! No wonder she needs police tape to keep everyone back until the main meal is complete! Special dance entertainment was provided by Dance Techniques of Clinton, Ontario. In keeping with our Masquerade theme they performed in mask to everyone's enjoyment.
Magician Steve Seguin of London, Ontario kept everyone enthralled with his amazing juggling acts. A big thank you to Steve for donating his time to our event.
A big thanks to Greg Vandenheuval for sacrificing his mustache! Thanks Greg for giving us the opportunity to bring you out of the '70's!
A special thank you to our friends and family who not only help at the event, but throughout the year as we hype up toward another year! This would not be possible without your love and support.
