So oddly enough, we got invited to be part of a Canadian plumbing faucet company’s 20th anniversary celebration at St James Cathedral Church last week on Feb 11, 2015. While we weren’t sure what to expect, we were blown away by the dazzling array of lively performances and entertainment which kept guests dancing and singing late into the night.

Interesting features included an ice bar that served sorbet and vodka, Brazilian dancers, amazing tributes to Madonna, Metallica, and Daft Punk, photo ops with Canadian athletes Mikaël Kingsbury and Christel Hamel, and so much more.

“We’ve received incredible support from the Canadian plumbing retailers, designers, plumbers and contractors community over the past 20 years,” said company founder and President Mario Bélisle. “We wanted to treat our distributors and supporters to a warm party on a chilly February night to honour all of those that have made Riobel the success it is today.”

They also unveiled their new “Venty” product line of faucets.

What a great bash and thanks for having John and I there!
