The event is coordinated by Janseen (Simone) Walsh, and a dedicated volunteer committee. The gala takes place during mental illness awareness week. The event features seated dinner, raffle, silent auction, live entertainment, dancing and a fashion show. The main focus of this event is to celebrate life, remembering the people we have lost to a mental illness, and especially to raise funds for this much needed cause.
Organizing this gala every year, Simone draws on her passion for fashion, energy and determination to create a magical atmosphere. Simone realized that with the right combination of loving support, expert care and inner strength, and tremendous change, one can re-gain back control over their life. With the continuous support of the community, she has been able to give back to the dedicated and caring team of healthcare professionals at William Osler Adult Day Treatment Program.
The continued success of this signature event allows Simone to fulfill her own dreams of being a living testimony and making a difference in the lives of mental health patients. Because, when we face this stigma, we help to dissolve it and shine a light so bright on this issue that really CAN blossom a positive change. It is the hope that the outcome of this gala is to assure and uplift those who suffer from a server mental illness that they can find hope again and live a life unashamed.
