Feeling the love at our Valentine's Social!

A MAPP & WIPP Love Affair

February 12, 2019

Thursday, January 31 was a special night of love as both our men and women’s philanthropic groups, MAPP and WIPP, came together to “party with a purpose” at their first EVER combined event! Over 90 donors and guests gathered at Love Child Social House to kick off a month of romance at the MAPP & WIPP Valentine's Social in support of Providence Healthcare.

Despite the cold outside, guests kept warm with one (or three!) of Niagara Falls Craft Distillers creative twists on Valentine cocktail classics, and got the chance to sample Rouge River Brewing Co.’s amazing array of craft beers currently not available at the LCBO. This all paired perfectly with Calii Love’s delicious catering, which featured tasty sliders, flatbreads, satays, and savoury hors d’oeuvres to satisfy any palate. Throughout the evening, guests rocked out to the awesome sounds of Mac Mehew Band, who kept the party going with their great energy and attitude. In between dance moves, guests had fun playing our Lovers Game, browsing the raffle table, checking out the Live Auction and snapping keepsakes at our love themed Picture X Photo Booth! The evening was a true reflection of the camaraderie, love and passion both MAPP and WIPP have for Providence and its patients.

The perfect evening came to a perfect end as each donor and guest went home with a beautiful rose generously donated by Canadiana Flowers, as well as a mini bottle of Bombay Sapphire Gin and Bacardi Rum donated by Southern Glazer’s Wine & Spirits! This final touch was greatly appreciated by all and was a truly unique way to thank our donors for their ongoing support.

This event was made possible through the generosity of our Gold Sponsors, Malpack Ltd. and Scotiabank, and our Silver Sponsor, National Bank. We’d also like to thank our generous gift-in-kind donors for their incredible support of this event. Thank you to Emma Kreiner Photography for capturing the evening so perfectly; to Mark Zecchino for being our champion auctioneer; and to Meg Coffey and Kaileigh Landon of Love Child for your part in making this a phenomenal event.
