Evening at the Kasball (2009)

Evening at the Kasball (2009)

The Evening at The KasBall took our guests on a journey to the land of sand and stars where they enjoyed an exotic atmosphere of intense colour, incredible textures, enticing scents and intriguing tastes of Middle Eastern food.

The 37th annual Canadian Hospitality Foundation Ball at the Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel was an extraordinary evening and it took an extraordinarily generous group of companies to make it happen.  On behalf of the Canadian Hospitality Foundation and the 2009 Evening at the KasBall Committee, we would like to thank everyone who supported us.

We were very proud to have our long standing Platinum Sponsors, Unilever Foodsolutions and The Globe and Mail join us again along with the 2009 Silver Sponsors, Andrew Peller Limited, Philips Electronics Canada, Saputo Dairy Products Canada G.P., Starwood Hotels & Resorts and Trimen Foodservice Equipment Ltd.
