This festive reception is an annual party and auction fundraiser that, this year, supported the United Way. Held in three separate rooms, the hallways and all rooms were bustling with activity. The tables in the room were filled with auction items. Some of the more notable auction items included a gift basket full of wine and spirits and SuperBowl tickets. All three leaders, Premier McGuinty, Tim Hudak and Andrea Horwath were in attendance, as well as many current and former MPPs. It was wonderful to see so many people in attendance at this event not only for the chance to mingle, but also because it gave the chance to support a very worthy cause.
