A moment in time, sanctimonious and pure, Ve’ahavta’s annual ‘Starry Nights’ gala was a smashing success. Our friends, donors and volunteers as well as all other attendees made this year’s event one to remember. Driven by an innate desire to push and promote unity, to alleviate suffering of many kinds,
all of those in attendance have in one way or another made a substantial contribution to this end.
Master of Ceremonies Jian Ghomeshi was at his wittiest, Juno award winner Chantal Kreviazuk’s inspirational anecdotes of goodwill evoked gasps and exclamations of wonderment from many. ‘Humanitarian’ award recipient Alice Bartole – the founder of the ‘House of Hope’ orphanage in Haiti – encouraged all of us to look deep within ourselves, to challenge ourselves to do even more.
‘Starry Nights’ was indeed a celebration of all that Alice and others have accomplished, and a galvanizing call to action in order to encourage more love, peace and harmony amongst all people, everywhere.
