The MPI Toronto 2017 Awards Gala, held on March 9 at the Toronto Congress Centre, was a night to remember!! The Volunteer Committee were serious (but not too serious) when they pulled out all the stops this year to make sure our members and guests were feeling the fun-filled adventure at this year’s "Wonders of MPI."

" Wonderland a wonder ... when you have nowhere to land?"

Each and every one of the MPI Toronto Chapter award recipients applied their own brand of special magic to their hard work ethic and landed beautifully onto the stage of Wonderland (and deservedly-so!).
The award recipients were:
  • Recruiter of the Year – Marisa Goncalves
  • Norm Neill Student of the Year – Zaman Ishaad
  • New Member of the Year – Ioanna Antonopoulos
  • Outstanding Volunteer of the Year – Rachel Stark
  • Mentor of the Year – Alice Parnis
  • Supplier Member of the Year – Monika Radicevic, CMP
  • Planner Member of the Year – Natalie Ciarallo, CMP

CONGRATULATIONS to all of our award recipients AND to all of our finalists!!
