Rendez-vous à Paris

Math's fifth annual Charity Ball, Rendez-vous à Paris was a great success! The Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomph, stars, streamers, and lights created the atmosphere of a ball in Paris for 160 guests who enjoyed a night of dinner and dancing.

I would like to thank all my volunteers who helped build set pieces and decorate Fed Hall. From hammering nails and sawing wood, to hanging streamers and blowing balloons, your work made this ball happen.

Through the generosity of the following sponsors, we raised over $2500 for the Grand River Hospital Foundation.

Bernhardt Insurance Services Ltd.
Conestoga-Rovers Association Ltd.
