LOVEIT: SickKids’ Scrubs in the City Takes on London
If you’re looking for an evening of charity, glamour and themed parties the SickKids Scrubs in the City Charity Event is the must attend event of the year! It certainly isn’t your average charity ball, this event is one of the biggest annual themed parties of the year that will have you surfing the net and tearing apart your closets for the perfect theme appropriate outfit and believe me, if you don’t dress up you’ll be sure to stand out.
This year the event raised over $800,000 with an attendance of over 900. The event was held at the chic Evergreen Brickworks in Toronto, a perfect location that was transformed to resemble the streets of London for both your inner Royal or Rebel self. This years funds were raised for a new 3T MRI machine at SickKids to help make the MRI examination less stressful with a much quieter, faster and bigger machine.
With a great city comes even greater talent and although the actual British bands couldn’t make an appearance The Beatles and The Spice Girls Cover Bands certainly got the crowd going. From greatest hits to themed photos the bands added to the touch of London making the experience unforgettable from start to finish.
