Safe Haven’s 2011 Street of Dreams Gala

Just a quick update on the spectacular Safe Haven “Street of Dreams Gala” this past Saturday! Over 680 guests gathered at the Suncor Centre to make new friends, enjoy fabulous food…and to take part in placing their bids on the vast display of spectacular Auction items available through both silent and live Auctions!

Our Pinnacle Guests had a great time, with a few of them having the good fortune of having their pictures taken with Calgary’s very own Brett Wilson from the hit TV show Dragons’ Den™! Word has it that Mr. Wilson was also the successful bidder for the Mantracker™ Premiere Auction item!

Joining Paul & Elaine at this year’s Gala were Denny & Jessie Vannus from 4 Star Electric, Scott MacGillivary from Digital Lifestyles, as well as Doug & Christine Vass from Local Online Advertising Experts. Everyone enjoyed an exciting and fun-filled evening which included perusing the various Auction items, as well as sampling the gourmet cuisine prepared at the various food stations staffed by some of Calgary’s most accomplished Chefs! In the words of Doug Vass, “It was one of the most elaborate and high class fundraising galas I have ever attended. My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the evening and will be attending next year with friends. We can’t say enough good things about our first experience attending the Safe Haven Foundation Gala. Bravo!” Doug was the successful bidder on a Sky Dive Package, and is excitedly looking forward to his experience!

There were a number of very exciting Auction items this year. Among them was a 7 day European River Boat Cruise for 2 including shore excursions; a Mantracker™ Ranch Day for a group of 14 which consisted of an entire day of Kananaskis trail riding with the star of the show, Terry Grant; a 7 day excursion for 6 adults touring Canada’s beautiful Sunshine Coast aboard a 78ft Luxury Yacht including kayak and Zodiac adventures, and many, many more! Pinnacle was pleased to donate our Premiere Home Theatre Package, and wishes to congratulate the successful bidders on acquiring this fabulous package!

Karen & John Sherbut, and all the staff, committee members and volunteers of Safe Haven Foundation once again surpassed themselves in the coordination and execution of a fabulous event; every detail was with the usual taste and style this foundation is known for. A sincere token of gratitude as well to all the attendees who generously gave by bidding on both the live and silent Auction items; thank you all!

We will be looking forward to next year’s Street of Dreams Gala; and thank you once again to Safe Haven for a fabulous 2011 Gala Event!
