Drake, Cyndi Lauper, Backstreet Boys, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer; you name it, we sang it! On December 7th, the Halton Peel Dental Association (HPDA) hosted their first charity karaoke event at Young St Karoke Mississauga, in support of Food Banks Mississauga.
Members came out with their families, friends, and staff wearing their 'ugly' holiday sweaters and sang their hearts out! The evening was filled with food, prizes, laughter and overall a great time! More importantly, the HPDA was able to fundraise over $1,500 at the event and has become one of Food Banks Mississauga top donors this year! Food Banks Mississauga supports a network of 60+ agencies that serve over 30,000 food bank users every year and the HPDA has formed a team to become Hunger Warriors campaigning for the charity. During the HPDA’s last few educational seminars, members have been bringing non-perishable food items which have also been donated to Food Banks Mississauga. The evening started strong with our very own Past President Dr. William Rodriguez singing a festive holiday song. There was even Bollywood tunes thrown in the mix and we ended our night with Dr. James Tonogai, current President of the HPDA singing Coldplay. Thank you to all of the HPDA members for coming out and supporting Food Banks Mississauga. A special thanks to our non-member volunteers Tracy Xavier for managing registration and Nachiketa Amin for his wonderful photography. We look forward to seeing you all next year for another fun charity event!
