At Real Sports Bar on March 6, 2014, it was once again a Toronto sports fan’s dream come true to be able to rub shoulders and mingle with their favourite Toronto sports heroes from the Toronto Maple Leafs, Toronto Raptors, the Toronto FC, Toronto Marlies and alumni all in one night at the MLSE Players Gala 2014.

The evening also included “event-inspired” food from Real Sports Bar and a silent auction.

Over $500,000 was raised with proceeds from this annual charity event going to support the MLSE Foundation and the Regent Park Revitalization Project.

The Players Gala is a great win-win for everyone involved and in the end it helps local kids of all skill levels get involved with sports and physical activity.
