The Stand Proud York Region charity gala took place on Feb. 19th at the Thornhill Golf & Country Club. Funds raised support PFLAG Canada York Region, an education, resource and support network helping those with questions or concerns about sexual orientation or gender identity.
This was my 2nd year supporting this sold-out event, and fellow sponsors included Porter Airlines, Interac and Via Rail.
Notable attendees included Markham Mayor Frank Scarpitti, York Region Police Chief Eric Jolliffe and Liberal MP Kyle Peterson.
Dinner was followed by an electric dancefloor and drag performance by Robyn DeCradle.
These events only get better each year, looking forward to the next one!
