Imagine the Possibilities Gala Raises $70,000 for Abrigo

The Abrigo Centre hosted its annual Imagine the Possibilities Gala this year themed "Lisboa Encantada", on Saturday, April 6, 2019 at LiUNA Local 183's Gerry Gallagher Hall in Toronto.

Lisboa Encantada was a spectacular night filled with the sights, sounds and food of Lisbon. It was an enchanted evening for our guests, our sponsors, the business community and political leaders from across the GTA attending the gala.

Abrigo makes a positive difference in the lives of 6,500 clients annually. This year's gala raised a record $70,000 to improve Abrigo’s programs and services delivered to clients. Thank you to all who helped us reach our goal!

Entertainment for Lisboa Encantada included Fadista's Teresa Santos and Jennifer Bettencourt as well as Valdemar Mejdoubi on Viola do fado and Nuno Cristo on Portuguese guitar.

Jazz is hot in Lisbon right now and Abrigo was delighted to have Canadian recording artist Nancy Walker and her trio perform as well at this year's event. Highly regarded in the local music scene, Nancy just released her seventh album "Till Now is Secret".

Finally, guests danced the night away with DJ Vinay Lakhani who provided a blistering set of English, Spanish and Portuguese hits that had the dance floor filled for an extended period of time.

Thank you to all those who attended, as well as our vendors and supporters who made this event possible. 

Finally, thank you to all our sponsors who have given so generously to make this gala a great success!
