A Fabulous Time at the Island Gala!
Ontario Sailing’s 9th Annual Celebration of Sailing Gala – this year themed the Island Gala – was a resounding success. Through the support of 160 sailors and supporters, we were able to raise over $25,000 for Ontario Sailing programs.
The night was filled with fine wine tasting, great food, over 145 silent auction items, a fantastic live auction and live music featuring a steel drum band!
One of the highlights of the evening was the presentation of the Legends of Ontario Sailing Award (presented by Canadian Yachting Magazine) to the “Builders of C&C Yachts”: Rob Ball, Erich Bruckmann, George Cassian, George Hinterhoeller, George Cuthbertson and Ian Morch. Rob Ball, Erich Bruckmann, George Cuthbertson and Richard Hinterhoeller (on behalf of his father George Hinterhoeller) and their families were present to accept the Award.
Ontario Sailing would like to thank HKMB | HUB International, The Shotgun Fund, Tectona Electronics Inc. and GAM on Yachting Magazine for their Gala sponsorships. Also, a big thank you to VELUX 5 Oceans and Fogh Marine for their support and Craig Pattinson for his fabulous auctioneer work. The Gala would not have been possible without the tireless efforts of the Gagnon Family, the Island Gala Committee and the generous support of all of our auction donors. Once again, thank you!
