Victim Services Toronto crisis counsellor Anna Amy Ho told of her own triumph over tragedy and performed an aerial acrobatic performance for the 700 guests at the Chief's Gala Nov. 5 at the Liberty Grand. The gala, sold-out for the first time, aimed to raise $230,000 for Victim Services Toronto, a non-profit organization that supports victims of crime and sudden tragedy.
