Thank you to everyone who attended last night's Snow Angel Gala 2020 - with over 100 people attending, this was a sold-out event! The audience enjoyed presentations from the WATV kids, a great meal from Nick and the team at Restaurant Sainte Marie, live music from Gibbons and Figgs, wine and whisky tasting tables, and more. The event was a fitting memorial tribute to our co-founder Julianna Matyas who passed away and is dearly missed.

The final tally is in and we exceeded our goal in our FOR THE KIDS 2019 annual fundraising goal! We raised a total of $21,400 compared to our goal of $20,000. A big thank you to everyone who helped us, and to our Chair of the campaign - the legendary NHL hockey star Chris Kontos of Penetanguishene. All of the proceeds will go to supporting kids from our local communities to participate in extra-curricular programs that they otherwise could not afford.

A special thanks to all of our community businesses who pitched in. The Boys and Girls Club of Midland were our gracious hosts!
