Saturday, October 13th marks The Most Heavenly Party on Earth and I’ll be there with my wings on! Couture for a Cause, in support of The Angel Project (TAP), will be hosted at Hastens inside the Distillery District from 7 PM – 11 PM. Along side a vodka bar, fabulous photo booth and tantalizing hors d’oeuvres, the night will include guest appearances from business, sports and culture figures and performers who have lent their support to TAP including: four-time Canadian Olympic hockey medalist, Becky Keller and JAZZITUP, one of Toronto’s top providers of jazz music entertainment.
The evening will also feature an angelic fashion show, performance artist Beckie Dileo, live and silent auction items that will include paintings from TAP patients and live entertainment.
Couture for a Cause is The Angel Project’s annual fundraising event designed to help fund TAP programs that benefit long-term care patients, some of whom have been hospitalized for 10 years of more, and are alone. “Our patients have varying diagnoses and complex medical issues, they share the need for quality of life and access to therapeutic recreation and leisure activities. TAP’s support helps them enjoy activities they otherwise could not attend,” said Judy Beitz, Theraputic Recreation Specialist, St. Joseph’s Health Care.
With each ticket, a limited-edition Sno of Sweden pendant ($60.00 value) is included not to mention a host of other stellar swag. All funds raised go directly to the program and for patient equipment.
Having two parents in the health-care industry, I’ve heard some really sad stories of patients left alone at the time when they most need their family’s support. I’d love if you join me in being an angel for just one night.
