Join ESS Support Services for an entertaining evening of live Music, Magic and Fundraising!

Our 12th annual Dine for Dignity Fundraising Gala will be an evening to remember. We'll be bringing a touch of magic this year with a special performance by Magician James Alan and Singer Michael Vanhevel. Back by popular demand is Jerry Howarth, known as the radio voice of the Toronto Blue Jays before recently retiring after 36 seasons, as our Master of Ceremonies.

Our Gala will feature a 4-course banquet dinner with complimentary wine on the table, silent auction, live music, magic and plenty of prize draws.

By purchasing a ticket you are helping seniors, adults with disabilities and their families access essential programs and services that help them with daily living and to remain independent in their own homes and community.

Later this month, a community organization in Oakville is hosting a special night of Magic & Martini. You can join us at

The Church of the Incarnation
1240 Old Abbey Lane in Oakville


Saturday, March 25
starting at 7:00 PM

All proceeds from the show are part of fundraising efforts, specifically focused on helping them move forward a green agenda. The church has an ambitious geothermal project underway for their HVAC system which is currently at end of life. They are setting a great example for the community and I hope you make it out to support. 

Tickets to the event are $30. If you're in the neighbourhood, please join us.
