Sports & Sparkles 2019

Brain Injury Association of Windsor & Essex Gala

Dinner | Music | Dance | Silent Auction

Date: Saturday, May 25, 2019

What makes this event so fun is that you can wear your most sparkly outfits or your favourite sports jersey. We promise an exciting evening starting with live music by Carolyn Burnett and Doug Burnett while you enjoy our signature drink for this event – the “Purple Haze”.

What follows is a fabulous dinner prepared by the chefs at Central Park Athletics – antipasto platter, dinner rolls and butter, garden green salad, penne with tomato basil sauce, roast New York Striploin with Merlot demi-glace, grilled lemon chicken breast, oven roasted potatoes, vegetable of the day, pastry tray and coffee/tea. *

The MC for the evening, Kelly Steele will guide the evening’s program. Kevin Hamlin, the Head Coach for the University of Windsor Lancer’s Men’s Hockey Team will tell us about his experience as a father of a son with a head injury.

Kathy Worotny, a volunteer, past board member and a survivor of a head injury will be the inaugural recipient of BIAWE’s “Mission Possible” award for her many years of service and dedication to BIAWE.

There will be raffles of prizes such as sports items from the Chicago Black Hawks, Toronto Maple Leaves and an autographed hockey stick by Gordie Howe, sparkly items, and so many more things. You’re sure to find something you’ll like. All proceeds support the program and services offered by BIAWE.
You can dance the night away with music played by DJ Christopher Tuer from Sounds Plus.

At this gala, we can tell you more about the work of BIAWE and why it is so important. Please take time to read the stories accompanying the masks painted by survivors of a brain injury. The “Unmasking Brain Injury” project gives strength and hope to survivors by making their injury visible. It gives survivors a voice allowing self-advocacy and awareness and a means to educate others of what it is like to live with a brain injury. It shows others that persons living with this invisible disability are like anyone else; deserving of dignity, respect and compassion as valued members of the community.
