Gala Dinner and Entertainment

You will be delightfully entertained by none other than Steve Patterson. Now the host of CBC Radio One's hit show “The Debaters”, Steve has been a full-time comedian since losing his full-time copywriting job for making an ad about an amusement park “too amusing” in 1996. Nominated for consecutive Canadian Comedy Awards as Canada's best male stand-up comic in 2007 and 2008, Steve Patterson is a uniquely qualified comedian.
