After last year’s white party, this year’s annual Scrubs in the City charity gala took on a fun twist with a new theme. Guests were immersed in the night life of Tokyo, Japan as the Evergreen Brick Works venue was transformed for an event filled with food, fashion and entertainment.
Guests were greeted at the door with Pikachu and Hello Kitty blowing bubbles from above with the help of electric violinist, Sarah DG Violin, dressed as a harajuku girl.
Inside the outdoor venue on a bright sunny evening, there was lots to explore and do including ping pong and even an area devoted to taking selfies with selfie sticks and props provided.
ET Canada’s Cheryl Hickey was this year’s emcee joining philanthropists Sylvia Mantella and Suzanne Rogers, who are on the Scrubs in the City committee. Thanks to Ernesto of George Pimentel Photography for setting up the ladies for the shot.
This year’s proceeds of the Scrubs in the City event raised $500,000 for the Hospital for Sick Children (also known as SickKids). Specifically the proceeds go towards the purchase of a new 3T-MRI machine, one of the highest priority needs at the Hospital.
