The Military Families Fund Gala

On June 14, 2008, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel, The Military Families Fund (MFF) Gala marked another successful event for Brookline. More than 500 guests showed their support in raising an impressive $120,000 for deserving military families.

The high-profile function was attended by Lt. Governor Norman Kwong, Mayor Dave Bronconnier, MFF founder, General Rick Hillier and their respective partners.

The Brookline team worked hard to secure sponsorship, promote ticket sales and gain media attention and publicity for MFF – a charity that provides financial assistance to military families in cases of injury or tragedy during service.

Guests enjoyed a gourmet meal, music preformed by Juno winners, The Wilkinsons, and laughed along with popular Canadian comedian Mike MacDonald.

The gala included a live auction with big ticket items such as a West Coast cruise, a classic car and a once-in-a-lifetime diamond mine tour.

The highlight for many was an inspirational and entertaining speech given by General Hillier, the highly respected former Chief of Defense Staff, who recently retired.

Brookline was proud to have been part of such a successful evening benefiting a worthy cause and hopes to be involved in the MFF Gala for 2009 in Halifax, NS.
