Thank you to all that joined us at the Gatsby Mansion – the Canadian Hospitality Foundations’ 2013 Gala!
The evening was a great success – as any party that Gatsby throws is! Guests were welcomed with the smooth sounds of Jazz as they gathered, met and gossiped – many dressed in their most dapper of attires! Congratulations to Bud and Donna for best dressed couple; Lisa B. for best female; Efrem for best male; and the Hubert Distribution|ARAMARK Canada table for best table; Maureen, Racqel, Barbara, Cheryl, Cindy, Kevin, Akeem, Tracey, Lisa and Beth. The evening was full of excitement and fun as we all rocked on to the amazing talents of Alter Ego. Merci!
