Panda Ball 2014

Thank you for making WWF-Canada’s fourth annual Panda Ball a success!

Together, we celebrated Canada’s three oceans and the solutions that will safeguard its future. WWF envisions healthy, resilient oceans—teeming with life, and providing food security for the planet and sustainable jobs for Canadians on every coast. Your support of Panda Ball is helping to propel a new national vision for how to protect, steward and work in our oceans.

We were honoured by the presence of Lieutenant Governor of Ontario, the Honourable Elizabeth Dowdeswell. Our special guests, Alex and Tyler Mifflin of “The Water Brothers” highlighted the need to protect the extraordinary life in our oceans. Our Master of Ceremonies, Jully Black, brought energy and her soulful voice to this year’s festivities. And we ended the night in true east-coast style by dancing to the Alan Doyle Trio, featuring the music of Great Big Sea.
