17TH ANNUAL BUTTERFLY BALL® 2014
RAISES $330,000 FOR BOOST CHILD ABUSE PREVENTION & INTERVENTION™

Toronto, May 30, 2014 – Boost Child Abuse Prevention & Intervention is pleased to announce that its major fundraising event of the year – The Butterfly Ball® – raised $300,000 . The sold out evening took place last night at the Four Seasons Hotel with 430 guests in attendance, including New York based designer Prabal
Gurang.

“This is the most ever raised by our signature event” said Executive Director, Karyn Kennedy “and I want to thank our hard working committee, chaired by Daniela De Gasperis and Vanessa Mulroney for their commitment to our cause.”

“It is an honour to support Boost and their work supporting children who have been abused, at what is the most difficult time of their lives” said Vanessa Mulroney.

“Special thanks to all our sponsors” added Daniela De Gasperis. “They help us ensure the financial success of this very special evening”.

The live auction items, including a trip to Fashion Week in London this September, and a fantasy sports package (that sold twice!) contributed $63,000 to the overall amount raised at this extremely successful evening.
