Support Our Troops Gala 2009

Brookline is proud to have been a part of the Support our Troops Gala for the second year in a row. The gala, held September 26th at the Northlands centre in Edmonton, benefited various causes such as the Military Families Fund, Hospital Comforts Fund, and the Soldier On Program.

Guests included dignitaries such as Premier Ed Stelmach, Edmonton Mayor Stephen Mandel and Chief of Defense Staff, General Walt Naynczyk.

The Juno award winning band, Blue Rodeo, was certainly one of the highlights of the evening, along with the hilarious commentary provided by Jessica Holmes, Royal Canadian Air Farce comedian. Lucky winners of the Live Auction went home with great prizes, including WestJet vouchers and a motivational speaking session with retired

General Rick Hillier.

The funds raised at the 2009 Support our Troops Gala will benefit military families across Canada faced with unforeseen and often immediate needs. For more information on the aforementioned charities please visit
