Milton Chamber of Commerce was proud to present the 17th annual Sports Celebrity Dinner and Auction at Rattlesnake Point Golf Club on February 5th. Fans were overjoyed to meet and mingle with many Stars under one roof including hockey’s Brian Burke, who loves working in Canada, and the very popular former Jay’s manager John Gibbons, who was thrilled to reunite with Canadian fans and acquaintances. Other celebrity headliners were Daniel Nestor, Diana Matheson, Mike Krushelnyski, Sam Effah, Jody Jamieson and Ken Reid.

Ken Reid of Sportsnet served as Master of Ceremonies for the evening, introducing the celebrities and interviewing them after a sit-down dinner. Finally, the live auction included several signed jerseys, a Wendel Clark autographed bottle of whiskey, Leafs’ suite tickets, jewelry, helicopter tours and lots of other great merchandise. Funds raised will be put towards the Chambers Scholarship program to benefit local students in their first year of post-secondary education.
