TORONTO, Nov. 14, 2013 /CNW/ - Brookfield Place is hosting its 16th Annual Holiday Lighting Ceremony on Thursday, November 14th, 2013, from 5 to 7 p.m. in support of Starlight Children's Foundation Canada.
This spectacular event is open to the Toronto community, and is a true celebration of the season of giving. Brookfield Place, their tenants, and suppliers will join forces to create a colourful evening of food and entertainment in anticipation of the lighting of the holiday light curtains in the Allen Lambert Galleria. In addition to kicking off the holiday season, the festivities raise much-needed funds and awareness of the important work done by Starlight Children's Foundation Canada.
The evening's festivities include a performance by country pop singer/songwriter Nicole Rayy from Oakville, who has recently completed her 6 song EP. As well as grand illusions, extreme stunts and comedy provided by JDZ production's Justino and Daniella of Extreme Vegas.
"Since our partnership began back in 1998, we have raised over $2 million, the equivalent of approximately 700 wishes. That's a lot of smiles, laughter, joy and hope. This year we are hoping to reach another goal of $200,000 raised at the event!" said James Trak, VP & Regional General Manager of Brookfield Place.
"We are honoured to be the recipient of the funds raised at this incredible event," said Brian Bringolf, Executive Director of Starlight Children's Foundation Canada. "Our goal is that every child living with serious illness or injury has the benefit of Starlight programs. Through the generous support of the tenants and suppliers of Brookfield Place we can reach more children across the country."
