The Kids Kottage 2013 Gala – An Elegant Gatsby Evening
The Gatsby Gala presented by WAM Development Group was an amazing evening, raising over $130,000 that went directly into the Kids Kottage coffers for keeping children safe and strengthening families in our community. The transformed ballroom of the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald was decked out in sights and smells of decadent ‘Gatsby’ finery which included glittering gold rosette-covered tablecloths, fresh flowers, faux feathers and flappers.
The evening began with the 200 guests being treated to the wonderful sounds of the Strathcona Contemporary Choir and ended with the fabulous music of the Urbanites. As guests were seated for dinner, the angelic voice of ten year old Lexy Powell rang out with a beautiful song. Emcee Danny Hooper was in his usual form entertaining the guests and managing the auction of four amazing items donated by Arpi’s North, Spruceland Millworks, and Anna Loparco and Gary Smith. We so appreciate presenting sponsor, WAM Developments, the nine Dinner Sponsors, auction sponsors and buyers.
On behalf of the children and families served by Kids Kottage, ‘Thank You’ to everyone who worked so hard to make the Gatsby Gala such a success!
