Thanks For My Sight Night 2015 Charity Dinner – Eye Foundation of Canada

The Rostie Group and friends enjoyed a wonderful evening at The Eye Foundation of Canada’s annual charity dinner and dance ‘Thanks For My Sight Night’. The Eye Foundation of Canada celebrated their 26th anniversary on October 23rd, 2015. The independent non-profit organization promotes the preservation, enhancement, restoration of sight through innovative research, advanced education, and improvement of patient care. All of the proceeds from this event will go towards the future of eye care. Please visit for more information on The Eye Foundation of Canada and their journey to improve the future of eye care

We began our night at 20 Bay Street, WaterPark Place, loading onto the bus that took us safely to and from Montecassino Woodbridge Banquet Hall.


Upon arrival, we took a super group photo!


There were delicious ordoeuvres available and we all participated in the Silent Auction and Raffle.



Johnny Bower gave a great speech, along with the Directors of the Board for the Eye Foundation of Canada.



Dinner was served over 3 courses. In between courses we enjoyed watching exciting dancing couples and belly dancing.




The night continued with dancing, fundraising and making new friends while connecting with old ones.

Thanks for my Sight Night

The Rostie Group is a proud supporter of the Eye Foundation of Canada and would like to invite you to the EFC’s annual Gala – Sight Night! Our very own Charles Anderson recently travelled to India for a pioneering eye surgery and we want to bring attention to and support the Eye Foundation of Canada. Eyesight is often taken for granted but it is something quite precious that we must acknowledge and support. Charles will be speaking at the Eye Foundation’s Sight Night about his journey and we would love to invite you to attend.


  • Sight preservation does more to maintain the quality of our lives than anything else.
  • The number one cause of blindness in adults is diabetes.
  • The risk of getting cataracts severe enough to restrict driving ability by age 80 is almost 100%.
  • Vision is precious to each and every one of us.

The Eye Foundation of Canada (EFC):

  • EFC has raised community awareness by organizing The Toronto Glaucoma Initiative (TGI) and “Sight Days with the Blue Jays” in collaboration with CNIB. EFC has also sponsored several in-house ophthalmic research studies and funded external research grants in diverse areas of ophthalmology.
  • Since 1991, EFC awards summer scholarships to outstanding medical students to encourage them to pursue academic careers in ophthalmology. A joint western EFC branch was established in Calgary and Edmonton in 2012 to better serve the Prairies and British Columbia. To date, over 30 of Canada’s leading ophthalmologists owe their start to your generous donations to EFC. In fact, Sight Night and other EFC efforts have raised over $1,000,000 to preserve eyesight! To continue its success, The Eye Foundation of Canada needs your support at Sight Night 2014. Sight Night is an opportunity to meet interesting people over a delicious meal with entertainment.
