Network to host gala event for ‘Children's Wish’

by |
CMP’s annual charity spotlight issue isn’t until December but one major network is getting ahead of the game and hosting a “Dream Gala” for the ages in October.

On October 7th at Arcadian Court in Toronto, Centum will be hosting a gala event to raise money for the Children’s Wish Foundation.

“It gives hope and joy to a child which helps ease their pain – even for a short while – and allows them to just enjoy being a family again,” Paul Therien, vice president of operations for Centum told MortgageBrokerNews.ca. “Whatever we can do to make a difference in these incredible families live, Centum is extremely happy to be involved.

“A small donation, when added up over multiple donors helps Children’s Wish grant these wishes,” Therien continued. “We are looking forward to a spectacular evening at our upcoming Dream Gala in Toronto on October 7th and hope to turn wishes into reality.”

The dress code will be formal and tickets cost $119 per individual or $1,000 for a table of ten. The event is open to all industry players, regardless of network affiliation. Click here to register.

    This is a nice story and one that we should see more of instead of the doom and gloom.

    I also want to applaud CENTUM for putting aside the rampant politics of our industry and opening the doors to everyone. It is long overdue and it is high time that someone made an effort to do this. Other industries do it, so why shouldn't we?

    I'm not CENTUM and I am going to do my best to attend because this is a great cause and deserves to be supported.

    Agreed, kudos to Paul and Centum for expending the time and money to help a worthy charity.

    THANK YOU gentlemen for your kind words. It is appreciated.

    I would like to hope that we can see as many people as possible from our industry at the event. We truly do not want this to be a partisan event, but rather one that is about making a difference in the lives of some remarkable children.

    I hope I get to see as many people there as possible.
