L'Arche Edmonton celebrated our 45th Anniversary in style at a beautiful Gala Nov. 25. A magnificent three-tier cake was generously donated to us by Teresa Spinelli, owner of the Italian Centre, and we are so grateful to the many other donors who ensured an anniversary to remember! Our MC, Mark Connolly, CBC Radio AM personality, again demonstrated his versatile skills and kept us all laughing while capably performing as auctioneer at our Live Auction. Special thanks to Father Mike McCaffery for donating a signed Wayne Gretzky jersey that was highly in demand. There were many other generous donors, including Sherwood Ford, Sobey's Western Canada Liquor Stores, MHA Properties, Brass Stone Ventures Ltd., Quantum Chemical Services Ltd., WEM, Hotel Macdonald, artist Trish McIsaac, Shoppers Drug Mart the Hamptons, and Mr. Pat McCoy. We were honoured to welcome guests from L'Arche Calgary and L'Arche Lethbridge. Edmonton-Goldbar MLA Marlin Schmidt brought greetings from the province, and our own Vinh Le and Gregor Baunach welcomed us into the hall with soft instrumental music, while Julian DiCastri and the Rock the Ark Band offered up rollicking dance tunes later in the night! Thanks so much to our caterer, Darlene Donahue and the Buttercup Bistro for the lovely banquet, and above all, our gratitude to St. Thomas d'Aquin Parish for hosting us!
