2013 Chance for Change

$150 000 Raised for TTP

265 Registered Guests!
An evening of fun professional-style gaming, fabulous prizes,
entertainment and auctions to benefit TTP
February 2, 2013 in Toronto.

Due to increased interest from the community, we expanded our event this year and it was a tremendous success. The event raised $150,000 for Answering T.T.P. (Thrombotic Thrombocytopenic Purpura) Foundation!  Not only did we meet our financial target, but our guest list doubled, enabling us to raise more life-saving awareness for TTP than ever before. We hope you will join us in 2014.

This was not an evening of speeches and rubber chicken! Just fun for a great cause. There was something for everyone! Whether you have ever played casino-style games before, or prefer to seize great deals at our auctions and mingle, guests were not disappointed.

Celebrity host, Lainey Lui, kicked off the excitement with a Champagne reception and early raffle draw!  Early prizes included jewelry, gift card and entertainment!

The silent auction was packed with 400 items. Each item was 100% donated meaning that every dollar benefited TTP.
Guests had the opportunity to play professional casino games to increase their odds of winning the raffle. Games included blackjack, craps, roulette and the VEGAS wheel. Professional dealers provided fun instructions to novice players.
The event attracted media attention. Rogers sent a crew for a 6 minute TV slot to interview 2 board members of the Foundation.

100% of respondents plan to
attend again next year!
