St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation: Chances are if you have lived in Kitchener- Waterloo for most of your life you have either been to St. Mary’s Hospital or know someone close to you who has.  We were thrilled that the proceeds were going to such an amazing organization.  This year the proceeds will contribute to the purchase of a new CT Scanner, allowing for shorten wait times, reduced radiation exposure (for both patients and staff) and provide faster and higher resolution images.

Video & Photography: Thank you to videographer Andrew Price from Amotion Films for capturing the night, as well as  all of the photographers who attended the event! A few photos have been posted but keep an eye out for the rest! Check out the Winter Wonderland Facebook Page for all photos & videos of the event.

Winter Wonderland GEMINI Models is thrilled to once again be working with Hacienda Sarria and St. Mary’s General Hospital Foundation to launch Winter Wonderland 2013.  After such a successful year in 2012 we can’t wait for this years event!

Winter Wonderland: The unique and elegant atmosphere of Hacienda Sarria combined with the  nostalgic sentiment of Christmas time guarantees a truly exceptional and unforgettable evening.  Winter wonderland is the perfect opportunity to get away from the hustle and bustle of our busy everyday life and enjoy a relaxing evening of fashion, cocktails, hors d’oeuvres and good company.  This elegant cocktail party isn’t just about fashion and food – there will also be a Festive Tree Auction.
