The deep freeze couldn’t keep Toronto’s finest from braving the cold and heading to the Liberty Grand entertainment complex on Friday, February 1 for the 18th annual motionball Toronto Gala to benefit the Special Olympics Canada Foundation (SOCF).
The first North American location of Don Alfonso 1890 opened a couple of months ago and is already recognized as the “Best New Italian Restaurant in the World 2018”. Nick Di Donato from the Liberty Group and Michelin Star Chef Ernesto Iaccarino announced the exciting news of the Three-Fork designation from the prestigious Gamberro Rosso – the Italian equivalent of the Michelin Star.
When Toronto’s young professional set thinks of motionball, the annual glitzy fundraiser likely comes to mind.
Every year, Toronto Life Magazine acknowledges the city’s most inspirational leaders and impresarios through a curated list of the 50 most influential people in Toronto. From rap artists to politicians, media moguls to tech giants, the rankings in a way reflects the political and cultural climate of the year as viewed by the publication.
It’s no surprise that the Motionball Toronto Gala is one of our favorite Charity events in the city’s vibrant social scene. There’s a certain sense of grandeur and elegance that the organization has been able to consistently deliver year after year. Old Hollywood glamour was 2017’s theme and with the Historical Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex as the stage, flowing red carpets, and endless flowing libations, it’s difficult for attendees to not feel like a star.
