The evening began with a private theatre screening of L2L’s very own short film L2L 2016: Student Voices (available for viewing here). Our film highlights what L2L does and who it serves - the students, and it offered our supporters the opportunity to hear about the benefits of the L2L program from the students’ perspective.
We were fortunate to have two of the stars from our film attend the evening in support of the fundraiser. The L2L student coordinators from Northern Secondary School spoke with enthusiasm and appreciation as they shared their experiences in being a part of our peer-tutoring program.
Guests also enjoyed an exclusive screening of the five 2016 Oscar nominees for Best Short Film: Live Action category along with an after-party, photo booth, raffle and a real Oscar statue for guests to admire and take pictures with.
Our FlipBook Photo Booth gave attendees a chance to get in front of the camera themselves with props and laughs to create their own 7-second animated flip book as a unique way to remember the night. A special thank you to Lily Ha of Pocketbook Cinema for the generous contribution to our event!
The night was an immense success in raising awareness for L2L and, on behalf of the Board of Directors, staff, volunteers, teachers, principals, students, their families and their communities, we thank all of the attendees and supporters of the evening for helping children and youth excel in school and beyond. We look forward to seeing you at our 3rd annual signature fundraising event at TIFF in 2017!
