“I was quite honoured when they asked me,” he said.
“It’s fun and a night out with your colleagues and it’s an occasion to help our CPLC raise much-needed funds for a good cause.”
The money raised goes towards a scholarship for a student attending George Brown College. This year’s winner was 18-year-old Sarah Opong, who was presented with her scholarship by CPLC co-chairs Deb Devgan and 51 Division Supt. John Tanouye.
Raised by a single mother who migrated from Ghana, Opong – enrolled in George Brown College’s child and youth worker program – initially lived with her mother in a women’s shelter, before the family moved to the north side of Regent Park.
She credits the Regent Park North Centre, the Yonge St. Mission and the Kiwanis Boys & Girls Club for teaching her that the environment you live in does not define who you are.
Sgt. Craig Somers joined Global TV crime reporter Catherine McDonald as the event MCs.
“This is a fun event that brings communities together for a good cause,” said Somers, who has been with the Service for 16 years.
“It’s great just to get everyone together for a good time.”
In addition to Moyer, the other gorgeous models were Kristal Lynch, Liz Harnett, Kelly Sunghing, Hannah Bartz, Adam McKnight, Farzhad Ghotbi, Les Nyznik, Sheraz Arshad, Marty McLaughlin, Amanda Annetts and Jessica McInnis.
