What a fun and successful event! The Pride Cocktail Kickoff event raised over $67,000 in support of the Dr. Peter Centre.
I really appreciate the time, energy and talent that my friends put into helping make this a super fun virtual event - with Todd Hoye and Zack Currie from 1181 mixing the drinks, amazing drag shows by the beautiful Gia Metric & Kendall Gender (featuring Flavio Pereira), followed by a DJ set by Madam Lola!
The silent auction was also a hit, with prizes generously donated by Shirley Elias, Grimson and Sons, Thom Salon, O Studios Salon, Casey Archibald from XEVA, and many more! We also couldn't have done it without the support of our sponsors, TD, ViiV Health Care, Body Energy Club and The Lazy Gourmet.
Thank you so much to everyone at the Dr. Peter Centre for all your hard work putting this event together and to Gary Serra, Kevin Mazzone and Ryan McKinley for inviting me to join the planning committee.
I can't wait until next year's in-person event where we can all celebrate together and kickoff Pride while supporting an amazing cause.
