The Little Angels Gala Ball


Welcome to the 2019 Little Angels Gala Ball presented by Vera Coleski.

More than 180 people attended the Gala event at The Westin which raised an incredible $21,200 and were truly privileged to hear of Vera Coleski’s extraordinary story and witness her unwavering commitment to honour her own Little Angel.

So many generous people, families and businesses, have gone above and beyond to make the event a success.

On behalf of Vera and the entire Coleski family, everyone at the Women & Infants Research Foundation, and the countless many involved in delivering the Little Angels Gala Ball and supporting our work into preterm birth prevention. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts!

The full suite of Little Angels Gala Ball photos can be viewed here.

We hope you enjoy re-living the event as much as we did delivering it.
