Calvin Barry was proud to pledge $9,000 in donations at the Chief of Police’s Gala at the Beanfield Centre on Thursday, November 14th.
The Chief’s Gala is a yearly event hosted by Chief Mark Saunders in support of Victim Services Toronto. It is a celebration that highlights a highly valued volunteer organization that is respected and essential not only to victims, but also to police officers at the scene of crimes and sudden tragedies.
The Chief’s Gala is a high profile event that takes place yearly in the month of November. Over 1,300 guests attend including police chefs and senior police leaders from across the province, members from all levels of government, and members from the business community. Since 2008, over $2.7 million has been raised at the Chief’s Gala.
Victim Services Toronto provides immediate on-site crisis, trauma, safety and support services to victims of crime and sudden tragedy. This agency works closely, and in partnership with, the Toronto Police and depends on community support and donations in order to provide essential victim assistance programs to the City of Toronto.
