The gala took place on October 20, 2016 and was a complete success thanks to your support! The James Bond-themed event hosted over 100 attendees and raised more than $60,000.
We would like to thank everyone for their generosity and kindness. Together with your support, we hope to continue to provide support services and conduct cutting-edge research – with the overall goal of improving the lives of people with epilepsy and their families.
We hope that you enjoyed the Brain Benefit: Shaken Not Stirred Gala and that you join us for future events! You can stay up-to-date on EpLink’s events at www.eplink.ca and Epilepsy Ontario’s events at www.epilepsyontario.org. You can see photos from the evening here.

Epilepsy is a common brain disorder characterized by re-occurring seizures. It is estimated that 1 in 100 Canadians has epilepsy. Of the 300,000 Canadians with epilepsy, one-third still experience uncontrolled seizures. With your support, our goal is to improve the care and quality of life for people living with epilepsy.
We look forward to welcoming 250 guests to the gala being held in the Grand Banking Hall at One King West in downtown Toronto. An evening of mystery and intrigue awaits you, as guests enjoy a martini cocktail reception, a three-course meal, spy-themed table challenges and a silent auction. We look forward to having you join us!
