We were recently invited to the 2nd annual Gala of Light, which benefits Street Haven at the Crossroads, and was hosted by television personality, Melissa Grelo, Co-Host, and CP24 Breakfast/News Anchor. It was a lovely night of fundraising, eating delicious appetizers, sipping tasty cocktails, laughing and catching with some of my favourite bloggers, not to mention a mind blowing performance by Universal Music Canada Recording Artist Divine Brown!

About the Gala of Light and Street Haven:

“This event was established by a group of power-house women to bring awareness to marginalized women in downtown Toronto. Street Haven at the Crossroads is a multi-program agency that was established in 1965 to serve homeless women. Viewed as our biggest fundraising event of the year, The Gala’s attendees include a diverse audience of 350+ socially aware, influential, trendsetting, men and women across all industries, including: financial services, entertainment, fashion, and media. Street Haven has been part of our city for 47 years and counting providing thousands of homeless women with safety, support for recovery and a road to self-sufficiency. We invite you to be a sponsor, donor and community ambassador to a very special organization. This year our fundraising initiative is Operation Soul Food, bringing fresh, healthy, food options to our clients. In addition to providing wholesome food, Street Haven’s women help grow a small community garden that provides great therapy to our clients and serves as a culinary asset in the kitchen to have fresh herbs on hand. Our long-term plan is to expand the program to include yoga instruction, access to memberships to YMCA facilities, meditation and food preparation classes.”- Shannon Wright
