One of our favourite events of the year, the National Ballet’s Mad Hot Ballet gala fundraiser raised over $1 million for the organization.
Guests enjoyed a program of short pieces (including one, choreographed by Guillaume Coté, to the songs of Leonard Cohen), summery cocktails, delicious donuts and some great scenery: Beautifully dressed guests roaming the stunning Four Seasons Centre.
