We are proud to announce that tickets are now on sale for our very first fund-raising event called Ramp Up 2015! Our friends at Brightworks will be hosting the event on May 29th in their beautiful newly renovated space at 100 Broadview Ave. in Toronto! This is an event that you will not want to miss.
Funds raised during the event will go towards bringing a community ramp project to six different Ontario communities this summer and ultimately help us with our mission of raising awareness and removing barriers that prevent many people from accessing the spaces and the services that they desire.
We’ve got some great restauranteurs lined up that will be dishing out some of their tastiest eats including Prohibition, Aft, Eat Fresh Be Healthy, Snakes and Lagers, and Druxys. We’ll also be offering a number of different Toronto beers including Steam Whistle and wines from Prince Edward County and Niagara region wineries including Black Prince and Stratus. The fundraiser will include original artwork by 24 local artists, our selected artists will be creating a painted work of art on a StopGap ramp to be auctioned off at the event. There is an amazing roster of talented artists actively working on their masterpieces, including: Mike Parsons, Al Runt, Jane Adams, Regina Shing, Dimitry Bondarenko, Jen Onlock, Ray McNeice, Margaret Grandison, Chai Duncan, Sandra Cole Burke, Dianne Green, Judith Livingston, Valarie Ashton, Diana Bullock, and Michael Hopkins. We’ve also got some fantastic speakers lined up, comedian Andre Arruda, and a bunch of incredible draw prizes. You can’t afford NOT to be a part of this – tickets are only $40!
Oh… one more thing… did you see our new logo?! That’s just a teaser of what’s to come. Kate Miller from Brightworks has generously donated her time and expertise to help us with this huge rebranding task AND redesign of our website. We love our new dynamic logo and Kate has put together a site that is out of this world, designed to WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) standards. The new site will go live in a couple of weeks so stay tuned!
