In celebration of the Starlight Children’s Foundation’s 20th Starlight Gala, this year’s fundraising gala theme was the “Roaring Twenties”, a prohibition-themed affair at the Fairmont Royal York complete with plenty of entertainment, flapper dresses, feathers and pearl necklaces, decor and a speakeasy after party including a casino and a giant cage.

Hosted by ET Canada’s Rick Campanelli, the evening raised $500,000 for the Starlight Children’s Foundation.
