Taking a stand for children’s mental health, this fun charity party was hosted by David Sutcliffe (CBC TV’s Cracked and Gilmore Girls) and Natalie Brown (also from CBC TV’s Cracked) at the Burroughes.
It was also great to hang out with Mike Chalut from Proud FM, as he really elevates any event into a party. Natalie Brown, as beautiful as she is, is so down to earth and approachable. She even asked me to take photos of her and her friend with her phone. Like Mike Chalut, she also brought out the energy, setting the tone on the dance floor. Celebrity House DJ k-os helped contribute to the fun, of course, allowing for frequent photo ops with adoring fans. The open bar was served by friendly bar staff who also offered to make makeshift sangrias off the menu. Usually the appetizers at events that start after dinner are forgettable (this charity party started at 8pm) but the watermelon cubes topped with cheese, pulled pork sliders, poutine and rich ice cream with cherry were all top notch.
The silent auction items were great including a Samsung Galaxy Note 2, a Blackbery Z10, wine packages and much more.
Professional hair and make-up touch-ups were also provided. Also, 2 professional photo studios were available courtesy of celebrity photographers, Dustin Rabin and Arthur Mola. Interesting way to get one-stop professional portraits right on the spot.
Such great party vibes all around that night! Proceeds from the event support vital children’s mental health programs including prevention, early intervention, training and research activities. Be sure to watch out for this fun annual One Night Stand charity party next year!
Thanks to my friend, Tanya for spotting Lauren Hammersley, actress from the TV show, CBC’s Mr. D.
