motionball "BRIGHTER" Gala 2014
Calgarians are known for their genorsity and activeness partaking philanthropic work. At the midst of the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics, it's also the time to celebrate our heoric Special Olympians who strife to overcome obstacles and achieve success as athletes.
motionball's annual fundraiser gala in support of The Special Olympics Canada Foundation will be happening this Friday, February 28th at Flames Central Calgary. One of the biggest fundraiser events in Canada, the proceeds collected at the gala ensures long term financial integrity of the Special Olympics in Canada and to fund the training of our Special Olympians for competition, as well as volunteer growth.
This year's theme, "BRIGHTER", signifies our support of the Special Olympics is a smart (bright) choice. Personally I think this title also connects to bringing a "brighter" future for our champions at the Special Olympics. With this theme, guests are asked to dress their best with splash of bright colors in their formal attires.
Some of highlights at this year's BRIGHTER gala include a fashion show, silent auction, live music and dance performances, special guests appearance and of course delicious hors d'oeuvres and special cocktails are surely expected to be there.
Ever year the motionball connects young professionals throughout the city and giving them the opportunity to network and meet Special Olympians. The ultimate goals however are to bring awareness of the Special Olympics Canada Foundation, learn about the programs for athletes with intellectual disability, promote recruitment of volunteers and trained coaches. motionball became the world's largest movement dedicated to promoting respect, acceptance, inclusion, and human dignity for people with intellectual disability through sports. And giving them equal opportunity to excel the sports they love and enjoy. Binzento is a huge fan, as I believe this event is truly meaningful. If you are in town, be sure to purchase your tickets and check out this event to support the great cause. Tickets are available HERE.
