You could say we were ‘blown away’ by this year’s Midwinter Gala! Hosted at Western’s WindEEE (Wind Engineering, Energy and Environment) Institute. The Amabile Men of Primus blew us away with an exceptional menu including classic Midwinter staples of freshly shucked oysters and their decadent dessert bar.
The unique setting of the WindEEE Institute gave our Men a full and rich sound as they performed an eclectic set of songs based around the weather from the classic Candle in the Wind, to a beautiful set from The Wizard of Oz.
We would like to acknowledge everyone who assisted us in making this evening a success. Sincere appreciation to Western’s WindEEE Institute for hosting us with such a unique location. We would like to give a special thank you to Patzees Floral Scapes, Victoria Playhouse Petrolia, the Toronto Symphony Orchestra, the Grand Theatre, London Symphonia, WestJet, VIA Rail and all other individuals and companies who graciously donated items and services to this year’s silent auction. And a very special thank you goes out to our amazing emcee for the evening, Chris dela Torre from CBC – thank you for engaging the crowd and keeping us all entertained!
Finally, we would like to thank everyone who purchased tickets in support of our Midwinter Gala. Your generosity allows us to do what we do best, enriching and engaging our community, one voice and one WindEEE event at a time!
