The Angel Foundation for Learning Gala

Angel Foundation Learning

Friday, November 15th 2013 was one of the classiest evenings for many people. Why? TCDSB’s official charity, The Angel Foundation for Learning, held their annual fundraising Gala at Riviera Parque Banquet Hall. It was an evening to Feed the Soul.

There were many people (teachers, administrators, school board officials, corporate sponsors) who attended this marvelous evening, including CSLIT Executives and members of E-CSLIT. The third place winners of our social media challenge, St. Barbara and St. Ursula, won tickets to attend the gala with Marivic Victolero (E-CSLIT chair)  and Michael Consul.

Unfortunately, St. Ursula could not attend (you were missed St. Urusla 😦 so St. Barbara came in full force! In total there were two teachers and 8 elementary student leaders that attended. Take a look at what happened during the evening!

Take a look at the E-CSLIT Table! Can someone say (or comment) "fancy, huh?" :D
