The 4th Annual Best of Local took place Friday, November 3rd at the Pier 21 in Halifax. Best of Local is a celebration of all things Nova Scotian. We are bringing together the best of local entertainment, wine and food for a gala dinner event. All funds raised through ticket sales, raffle and auction items, and donations will go to support the programs that Autism Nova Scotia provides to the province's Autistic community.
This year's event, emceed by CTV's Priya Sam, featured a special performance by the Maritime Bhangra Group, entertainment by Duo D'Amore and Ellen Gibling, a 15th anniversary celebratory video produced by CTV, and moving remarks by our guest speaker Danielle Griffin.
A raffle draw and live auction was held throughout the night, and together we were able to raise enough money to send 20 children to the Ben James Autism Summer Camp in 2018.
Thank you to our friends who donated prizes for the live auciton, raffle and door prizes.
