Laughing indeed – LOL comedy night raises over $30,000 for New Circles

Congratulations to Leaside dynamo, real estate agent Charlene Kalia for her amazing success in organizing Laugh Out Loud in Leaside, a local fund-raiser that took place on February 28th. The fun-filled evening of comedy, music and fantastic food raised over $30,000 to support New Circles.
 
These funds will make a critical difference in supporting our upcoming move to 161 Bartley Drive, where we will be operating a much improved facility for our clothing store and introduce training programs in retail and office skills. For more information check outMove 2014.
We are so grateful to Charlene and her fantastic silent auction team Lara Neal, Mary Holmes and Selby Copeland for their tireless efforts.
 
Thanks to the generous sponsors: Chestnut Park, Lexus on the Park, Neal Brothers Foods, Grilltime Gourmet Meat Shop, De La Mer Fresh Fish Market, Patria Restaurant, Hanna Neal Wine Merchants, Amsterdam Brewery, Pepsico Canada, Tori & Cate’s Cupcakes.
 
We also thank the many volunteers who helped to make it a success: MC Paul Constable, The Indecision Band, Jon Burnside, Michele Henry, Satinder Sahota, Anna Donadio, Nita Saini, Poppy Phioukham, Virginia Trotter, Mariela Puerta, Lara Katranis, Lianne Castelino and Nancy Baillie.
