Having read British Hello magazines since elementary school, it’s no surprise that dressing up to attend charity galas is of interest. I’m always on top of the Toronto socialite scene to see how I can get in to the most notable events. Early June always seems to schedule Scrubs in the City which benefits the SickKids Foundation and Power Ball, the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery annual fundraiser, on the same night.
What happens when you end up winning tickets to both? You must go to each as well.
I started the night at #SKScrubs held at Evergreen Brick Works. This year, had a London vibe with Posh vs. Punk the main theme. Of course, I would choose posh.
High tea is a must!
The views from Abbey Road
I wasn’t sure how English-themed food would taste, but it was fabulous. Food stations were set-up throughout the venue ranging from traditional roasts to Indian curries. Even the cutlery was elegant!
All in all, it raised $800,000 which is most important of course!
Demographic: Classy Forest Hill
After stealthily changing in the car, we made our way to the Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery.
The art installations always grab attention but the venue felt crowded compared to Evergreen Brick Works.
2015 Power Ball had all-you-can-eat oysters. 2016 had all-you-can-eat s’mores.
The feet needed a rest.
So, this is art.
My fav part of #PowerBallTO was this giant inflatable lip installation.
Demographic: Downtown modern chic
All in all, a memorable evening!
