Sons and Daughters of Italy
Bockstael Construction was proud to present the 2021 Sons and Daughters of Italy - Garibaldi Lodge Virtual Encore Event on May 1, 2021 with proceeds benefiting the Bruce Oake Memorial Foundation.
In 2021, the Sons and Daughters of Italy, Garibaldi Lodge selected the Bruce Oake Memorial Foundation as the benefactor for our Encore Event. "Encore," because in 2018, the Sons and Daughters of Italy raised an impressive $250,000 for the Bruce Oake Memorial Foundation. The large gift was recognized by the foundation by naming the stage in the gymnasium of Winnipeg's new Bruce Oake Recovery Centre the Sons and Daughters of Italy Stage.
As in-person events have been affected by the pandemic, we found it fitting to host our 2021 “Encore Event” from the Sons and Daughters of Italy stage in the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre. At the time of our event the recovery centre will be only days away from its official opening. Therefore, we raised funds to support to the Bruce Oake Memorial Foundation’s “Save A Life Campaign.”
Our Title Sponsor for the evening, Bockstael Construction, was responsible for the construction of the Bruce Oake Recovery Centre. Bockstael stepped up on a regular basis and we are so proud to have had them as our Title Sponsor for this event.
This event featured an evening of delicious food, fine wine, wonderful friends, great fun and more importantly provided support for those suffering from addiction. Participants saw a few special cameo appearances from our exciting guests, had a chance to win some great prizes and were mesmerized by the talent of Winnipeg’s own illusionist Darcy Oake.
Finally, the evening waw capped off with our feature DJ and the ultimate at home dance party!
