Ignite the Spark Fund Cocktail Party
An intimate cocktail reception was held on May 6, 2014, to raise support for the Ignite the Spark Fund, an arm of the Children’s Aid Foundation that helps children who can’t afford, or have no access to, sports, arts and recreation.
The event took place at the York Mills home of Mark Daniels and Andrea Weissman-Daniels, co-founders of the Fund. Over 75 guests were treated to the wise words of inspirational speakers such as Olympic freestyle skiing gold medallist Dara Howell, as well as a violin performance from a child who has benefitted from the Ignite the Spark Fund. Among the attendees were Valerie McMurtry, president and CEO of the Children’s Aid Foundation, and Joe Canavan, chairman of the Children’s Aid Foundation.
