Ontario Science Centre presents the 2010 LG Innovators' Ball: 'Midnight Spell'

TORONTO, April 22 /CNW/ - The Ontario Science Centre will be transformed into a world of magic, weaving a spell over Toronto's most stylish and influential for the fourth annual LG Innovators' Ball on May 6th. 'Midnight Spell' promises to be an enchanting evening.

"We're thrilled to once again be presenting one of Toronto's most exciting annual benefit events at the Science Centre," said Lesley Lewis, CEO of the Ontario Science Centre. "The fourth LG Innovators' Ball will be the most sensational yet, captivating guests with a truly remarkable evening of enchantment, raising funds to support our industry leading community access programs."

This year's event, with Honorary Co-Chairs Joe Natale and Melissa Martin and Master of Ceremonies, Ben Mulroney, will be an unforgettable evening that will revolve around the thrilling world of magic and sorcery. Dinner guests will experience a truly decadent evening that is designed to inspire all the senses at every turn; imbibing potions poured from test tubes, tasting the culinary concoctions of celebrated Toronto chef Jamie Kennedy, and enjoying exciting entertainment, featuring a magical act that is sure to astonish and thrill. Party guests are in for mystical delights with a trio of Toronto's top DJs to entertain as the clock strikes midnight.

In addition to special entertainment provided by award-winning magicians and illusionists, all guests are welcome to enjoy Harry Potter(TM): The Exhibition throughout the evening. There, they will be able to immerse themselves in the world of Harry Potter through experiences such as being sorted into their favorite Hogwarts(TM) house by the magical Sorting Hat(TM), tossing a "quaffle" or pulling a screaming mandrake from its pot in Herbology. Featuring hundreds of original film props and costumes, guests can truly appreciate the artistry and craftsmanship that went into making the Harry Potter films.

Proceeds from the event support the Ontario Science Centre's community access and outreach initiatives which help keep programs affordable and accessible to all members of the community. This year, to further its commitment of reaching out to young people, Title Sponsor, LG Electronics, has purchased 300 tickets for Big Brothers and Big Sisters of Toronto to attend Harry Potter(TM): The Exhibition, which opened to the public on April 9, 2010.
