    We were recently invited to the 2nd annual Gala of Light, which benefits Street Haven at the Crossroads, and was hosted by television personality, Melissa Grelo, Co-Host, and CP24 Breakfast/News Anchor. It was a lovely night of fundraising, eating delicious appetizers, sipping tasty cocktails, laughing and catching with some of my favourite bloggers, not to mention a mind blowing performance by Universal Music Canada Recording Artist Divine Brown!
