The 10th & 11th Nov Weekend is our last event weekend to celebrate the Regiment’s 150th anniversary!
This year we will be back in the Civic Ballroom at the Sheraton Hotel in Toronto. The price will be $85 per person. This includes a splendid three course Dinner and complimentary wine! It is excellent value in a quality location. Three bottles of wine will be served at each each table. Additional wine will be available at extra cost. As part of our Veterans’ Welfare program, the association will sponsor WWII & Korean War veterans and one care-giver each at no charge. This recognises their past financial & moral support for the Regiment & the Association over many years.
Tickets: $85 per person. Tickets will not be sold at the door. Reservations are required. Tickets must be ordered and paid for by Thursday 1 Nov 12. We must guarantee the number of Meals and pay the Hotel in advance. Prepaid tickets will be mailed, or picked up at the Reception desk. Any member who purchases a ticket, but is unable to attend for any reason, such as sickness, or weather, may request a refund.
Friends & family are welcome. Order your tickets early to enjoy this great evening! You may reserve your seats to sit with your friends. Tables are available with seating up to 10 persons. Soft drinks will be available no extra cost. It will be a fine meal, good service and a great night for “all the Royals!”
