On March 7th, 2015 Quinte Children’s Foundation celebrated the 14th anniversary of the Guardian Angel Gala at the Belleville Sears Atrium, recognizing two local individuals who are making an exceptional difference in the lives of our children. For this year’s event, QCF honoured the lovely Fran and Ed Lehtinen. This year’s theme was “The Grand” ballroom which offered a classic, elegant ambiance. QCF received many gracious comments from attending guests describing the evening as being “elegant” and “charming”.
The Gala was a huge success; over 300 guests attended and our net amount raised over $95,000. These funds will go towards QCF programs: Playing for Keeps which assist with registration fees for sports and/or participating in an activity a child loves, Camps of Hope ~ where every child should have the opportunity to experience camp, Sleep Baby Safe ~ where every baby should have a safe crib to sleep in; just a few programs we are able to support through funds raised thanks to the generosity of our amazing Sponsors, Donors and attendees.
Thank you to all of our Sponsors; your kindness and generosity go such a long way in helping support our local Children. Thank you to our amazing community for donating for our live and silent auction. Thank you to our fabulous Committee and all of our wonderful volunteers who give up so much of their valuable time to aid in creating this special evening; our Guardian Angel Gala would not be possible without you. Thanks to each and every one of you who attended this year’s event to show your support for Fran and Ed and last but certainly not least, “Thank You”, Fran and Ed for giving us a reason to honour your outstanding commitment to support Children in our community; you are truly Angels.
