The energy was still high up through the end of The Purple Party in support of Childhood Cancer Canada. The evening was hosted by former NHL enforcer and Stanley Cup champion, Brad May, and his wife Bridgette May.
The Drake Hotel was packed full of philanthropists, athletes, and celebrities including CFL Hall of Famer, Damon Allen and Yannick Bisson, from the Murdoch Mysteries, the ever-so photogenic international supermodel, Stacey McKenzie, Gabrielle Miller, Stacy-Ann Buchanan, Lyriq Bent, John Shannon, Steve salos, John Mitchell, Michelle Dube, and Paul Bliss.
The Purple Party spanned both the ground floor as well as the “Sky Yard” rooftop lounge. There was even a fire pit with tree branches for roasting marshmallows!
