A big shout out to Danielle Volpe and Cory Stewart of Embrace Disruption PR for the invite and the hospitality.
On Thursday, June 12, 2014, Hundreds of young professionals, males and females attended The Hoxton to drop their trousers and flaunt their legs at the fifth annual Pants Off http://www.pantsoff.ca/toronto for Prostate Cancer event http://www.facebook.com/prostatecancercanada , presented by Bayer Inc., benefiting Prostate Cancer Canada. Pants Off for Prostate Cancer: Protect Your 5-Hole transformed The Hoxton into a hockey-themed paradise. The-below-the-belt nature of prostate cancer was enforced with a mandatory no pants policy at the door for its guests. Attendees danced the night away surrounded by hockey themed decor with impressive ice sculptures, iconic hockey memorabilia, hockey-inspired activities and an amazing menu of food from Parts & Labour chef, Matthew Matheson. Since its humble beginnings in 2010, Pants Off for Prostate Cancer has raised an impressive $250,000 for Prostate Cancer Canada, the nation’s leading charity funding prostate cancer research, support programs, and awareness. The who’s who was in attendance for this fun gala including: Charlotte Burrage (Canadian Opera Company),Jayna Hefford (Canadian Olympic Hockey Player),Kathleen Kauth (U.S. Olympic Hockey Player),Melanie Durrant (JUNO Nominated Musician) and Mike Chalut (Television/Radio Personality)to name a few. Overall a fun time for all and a great Cause to support Prostate Cancer with it’s Canadiana theme of the “Good ole Hockey Game!”
