Motionball's Cloud Nine Gala

Motionball’s Cloud Nine Gala
Friday February 5th, 2010, 9:00 p.m. – 2:00 a.m.

In celebration of Motionball’s ninth year in support of Special Olympics Canada, Torontonians are invited to mingle with young professionals and Special Olympic athletes over cocktails, live music, fashion and dancing at one of the city’s most coveted annual parties. Like all Motionball events, the Cloud Nine Gala aims to educate attendees about the importance of the Special Olympics and create an atmosphere where athletes and supporters can celebrate the great cause together.

Motionball is the brainchild of three best friends, who also happen to be brothers. Mark, Sean and Paul Etherington have been aligned with Special Olympics Canada since childhood when they volunteered at fundraising events organized by their parents, who co-founded the Sports Celebrities Festival, which has raised in excess of $25,000,000 for Special Olympics Canada since 1983. Noticing a lack of integration between supporters and the athletes they support, Mark, Sean and Paul Etherington brought Motionball to life.

The Cloud Nine Gala will feature live music by Escalate, a CK Underwear fashion show, a guest dj, silent auction, complimentary bar and a chocolate buffet – all in support of Special Olympics Canada.

Tickets are $100 until January 17, 2010, and $125 afterwards.

Catch up with Motionball on their blog, Twitter and Facebook.

This will be my first Motionball event and I’m looking forward to celebrating with everyone.
