Celebrating a monumental 100 years of the Grey Cup, the most appealing part of the night was that this historic event was held on the actual turf where the highly-anticipated 100th Grey Cup on Sunday will be held. It was our first time at something unique like this at the Rogers Centre. When have you ever heard of a gala where you can practice your football throwing skills enjoying hors d’oeurves, cocktails sitting on a couch with your dress shoes in official Grey Cup footall turf mingling with Argos Cheerleaders? For unique experiences this one-of-a-kind gala delivered big!
