Events | Why you don’t want to miss The 2016 motionball Toronto Gala: a Night in the Woods

There are certain events that take place every year that I ensure to clear my schedule for. I stop and think a lot about how many amazing causes we offer our support to, and the event that always comes to mind is motionball. This year, motionball’s Toronto Gala is taking place on Friday, February 5th and aims to be the biggest one yet. We’ve got all the reasons why you don’t want to miss one of our favourite events of the year in support of Special Olympics Canada Foundation.

“motionball, a national non-profit organization that raises funds and awareness for the Special Olympics Canada Foundation and introduces the next generation of supporters to the Special Olympics movement. Through integrated social and sporting events uniting Special Olympics athletes and supporters, motionball creates meaningful experiences that help bring the fun back into giving.”

Take a look at this amazing video from last year’s 2015 motionball Toronto Glitz & Graffiti Gala:

This year’s theme, a Night in the Woods, will create whimsy & magical memories for those of us who are attending. Presented by AIR MILES®; a LoyaltyOne program, this event will play host to 3000 celebrities, young professionals and Special Olympics athletes all gathering for one incredible event. The aim of the evening is to raise over $300,000 in one night for a cause that we hold close to our heart and always love to support!

The 2016 gala tickets include:

  • Complimentary drinks all night and specialty cocktail bars
  • Live entertainment featuring 12 artists including top Toronto DJs and live bands
  • Hosted by KiSS 92.5’s Devo Brown and TSN’s Cabral Richards
  • A luxury silent auction with over 100 items and experiences
  • A live auction for a dream trip for eight to Bahamas during the Sponsor Reception, worth $25,000                                                                   
  • Midnight pizza bar courtesy of Pizzaville and candy bar by Summerhill Market
  • Raffle prize for two flights anywhere that Air Canada flies
  • The chance to meet the incredible Special Olympics athletes that motionball supports

The silent auction is actually one of my favourite parts of the evening, and this year the prizes are some of the best you could imagine. From 2 flights anywhere in North America courtesy of Air Canada to roundtrip flights for 2 to the Azores courtesy of SATA Airlines, and so much more. It allows you the opportunity to donate to an amazing cause and walk away with incredible prizes all at the same time!

Once again taking place at the stunning Liberty Grand, it will be a night to remember and one we can’t wait for! 

Tickets are on sale now and will sell out quickly, so we encourage you to purchase yours today before it’s too late!
