HLBS 2017 Ilios Gala

This event raises the necessary funds to send underprivileged and special needs children to various summer camps for an experience they would not otherwise have.

The evening commenced with cocktails at 6:30pm in the elegant setting of the Peacock Alley where multiple activities were taking place, such as a silent auction, open bar, martini bar, oyster bar and photo booth to capture some memorable moments of the evening. Our guests were later ushered into the magnificent Versailles Ballroom for dinner and dancing to the superb music of Paul Chacra and his orchestra. A splendid ambience was created with the music, delicious food, a surprise guest appearance by Opera Chef, Davide Bazzali and then followed by a very lively live auction with Elias Makos of Breakfast Television Montreal as the auctioneer and Emcee for the evening.

The evening closed on a very successful note with great prizes and dancing!
