Are you a royal or a rebel? Posh or punk? Next Thursday June 2, SickKids will host the 15th annual Scrubs in the City event, with a playful London Calling theme. Evergreen Brick Works will be transformed with food, fashion and entertainment inspired by London. I’ve attended their previous events and each year I have a great time. It’s even better knowing that it serves a great cause. To-date, the annual event has raised more than $3.5 million in support of some of the most critical needs at the hospital. This year, they’ll be raising funds for a new 3T MRI machine – quieter, faster, bigger and more powerful, it will make the MRI experience less stressful for kids and their families.
This year, guests will enjoy surprise musical entertainment (think The Beatles, Spice Girls and David Bowie), delicious food and drinks showcasing the “city of contrasts”. An exclusive silent auction is already available to guests and non-guests online, including luxury one-of-a-kind items such as a Mulberry Kite Tote, an 18 kt White Gold and Diamond Bangle Bracelet from Mark Lash, or two night’s accommodation in an Owner’s Suite at the Fairmont Pacific Rim, among other items. There will also be an exciting draw for a chance to win diamond jewellery from Penwarden, a London travel package and a 2016 Mini Cooper. The total value of auction and draw prizes is over $120,000!
I’m not sure what I’ll be wearing yet, but I’ll be there, will you? Tickets are available for $195 CAD at www.SKScrubs.com.
