When I decided to compete in Miss Teen Canada World 2013 and learned about the amazing work done by Free the Children, I knew that I should host an awesome event to raise money for this cause. I came up with the idea of hosting a Dinner & Dance Event, because anyone that knows me knows I love to dance and host a party!
Hosting an event of this size took a lot of hard work, involvement from my friends and family, and support from the community.
I would like to extend my warmest gratitude to all of my friends and family who attended by event and helped to sell tickets! In addition I would like to thank the businesses who donated products for my silent auction! Thank you to Maltese Grocery Thunder Bay, AVON, The Body Shop, The Picture Store, OLG Thunder Bay Casino, and LUX Boutique!
The night was a fabulous success! Over 130 guests attended, the silent auction went outstanding and the 50/50 draw alone raised $400 for Free the Children!
The night began with a speech and introduction by myself, followed by dinner, musical performances after the meal, draws, and finally dancing!
THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO CAME AND SUPPORTED THIS EVENT! I COULDN’T HAVE DONE IT WITHOUT YOU!
