More than 150 EwB supporters filled the BMO Great Hall at VanDusen Gardens on November 24 for “A Toast For Hope, 2012.”
A night of brilliant jazz, soulful ballet and wonderful food and wine, raised more than $12,000 after expenses for EwB projects in Gugulethu, South Africa!
Special thanks to our performers from CatchingART Contemporary Ballet Theatre, with choreography by Astrid Sherman, and to our amazing emcee/auctioneer Fred Lee of CBC Radio and the Vancouver Courier and Province.
The evening also featured some moving words from Kucki Low, South Africa’s first female airline pilot who is sponsoring students at EwB.
The warmth and energy of the evening was felt by all who attended.
