Special Olympics Canada And Special Guests Celebrate The Limitless Possibilities Of Sport At LIMITLESS: The Special Olympics Canada Gala

TORONTO, Nov. 15, 2013 /CNW/ - Special Olympics Canada welcomed some of Canada's top athletes and personalities for a night of celebration and support at LIMITLESS: The Special Olympics Canada Gala. TSN was the honoured partner for LIMITLESS, recognized for its 30-year partnership with Special Olympics Canada as their charity of choice. LIMITLESS brought together Special Olympics athletes, Canadian sport celebrities and Special Olympics supporters and guests for a night of terrific live performances, incredible silent- and live- auction prizes, and interactive sport experiences. Guests were able to hear first-hand the impact of Special Olympics programming from Special Olympics Athlete Michelle Augert and parent of Special Olympics Athlete Alex, Stella D'Silva.

The LIMITLESS Gala was an opportunity for more than 700 Special Olympics supporters to mingle with both celebrities (including Brendan Shanahan, Geraldine Heaney, Brian Burke, Mike "Pinball" Clemons, Jamie Sale, Amazing Race Canada's Jet and Dave, Adam van Koeverden, Rosie MacLennan and Mark Tewksbury, to name a few), and Special Olympics athletes, as well as celebrate the limitless power of sport. Hosted by TSN on-air personalities Jennifer Hedger and Rod Black, and staged at the iconic Royal York Hotel in downtown Toronto, LIMITLESS was an event to remember.

This year's live- and silent-auction prizes included one-of-a-kind experiences like Centre Court at the 2014 Wimbledon Championships, a Leafs/Rangers Experience with recently inducted Hockey-Hall-of-Famer Brendan Shanahan, a 2014 Cadillac CTS (Motor Trend's 2014 Car of the Year) package, courtesy of LIMITLESS' Automotive sponsor, Cadillac, and a five-day luxury cruise experience in Nassau, Bahamas for 8 people on a private yacht, among countless others.

"Special Olympics Canada is so grateful for the support received each year from our national partners, especially this year's honoured partner, TSN, the LIMITLESS Sponsors, and all the celebrity athletes, Special Olympics athletes and other generous guests in attendance," said Lindsay Glassco, President & CEO, Special Olympics Canada. "LIMITLESS was a great way to celebrate the unlimited potential of Special Olympics athletes, and the impact Special Olympics has on their lives and our communities."

This annual must-attend event raises awareness and funds for Special Olympics programs across the country. For more information on LIMITLESS, please go to http://www.specialolympics.ca/gala-information/.
