On Oct.26, the enchanting, second annual Masquerade Ball held in Toronto was a night to remember, organized with a noble cause in mind. The event was a mesmerizing blend of extravagance, entertainment and goodwill, all in support of the ComKids initiative. Attendees were greeted by the opulent ambiance of Casa Loma, setting the stage for an evening filled with wonder and generosity.
The Masquerade Ball featured a variety of incredible performances, from captivating magic shows to the soul-stirring live violin performance by Dr. Draw. The air was abuzz with delight as guests were treated to deliciously catered cuisine, adding to the night’s allure. The event boasted sponsorship from renowned brands like Harbour 60 and Tromba Tequila, whose support underscored the importance of bridging the digital divide for underprivileged students.
Guests were decked out in glamorous Great Gatsby-style gowns to reflect the theme of the evening. The main objective of the event was to raise funds for ComKids in partnership with HP, a mission dedicated to providing students with the tools and technology they need to unlock their unlimited potential. This initiative is aimed to address the digital divide, ensuring that every student has an equal opportunity to excel and thrive in an increasingly technologically driven world. The Masquerade Ball not only captivated the senses, but also left an indelible mark in the hearts of all those who attended, reaffirming the power of unity and charity.
Thanks to the support of generous sponsors and hundreds of donors who have attended the event, the organizing team has raised over $650,000 over the last two years, providing technology, mentorship and education to underserved youth who need it the most. To date, over 7,000 students have been impacted through involvement in the ComKids program.
