When you combine a pants off party with open bar, it obviously turns into quite a riot.
325 guests came out to The Hoxton at King and Bathurst with a “pant check” at the door in support of Prostate Cancer Canada, with the hockey-based theme called “Protect Your 5-Hole”.
Being at last year’s Pants Off Party 2013, I have to say It was bigger, better and much more fun this year with the help of open bar, live music and a DJ to help pant-less guests dance the night away.
“Pants Off For Prostate Cancer helps us raise the profile of a disease affecting 1 in 7 Canadian men” said Rocco Rossi, President and C.E.O., Prostate Cancer Canada. “Greater awareness combined with action are critical because the survival rate for prostate cancer can be over 90% when detected early – that’s why men need to Protect the 5-Hole by getting tested.”
Guests in attendance included Olympians Kathleen Kauth, Jayna Hefford, JUNO nominated musician Melanie Durrant, TSN’s Gurdeep Ahluwalia, CP24’s Pooja Handa, Canadian Opera Company’s Charlotte Burrage, Proud FM’s Mike Chalut and Chris Howson and Prostate Cancer Canada CEO Rocco Rossi.
Congrats on raising $80,000 for Prostate Cancer Canada’s and for raising awareness on prostate cancer. Presented by Bayer Inc, the party boasts to be one of the most successful “Pants Off” fundraisers to date.
