TORONTO, ON – The 15th annual Scrubs in the City Fundraiser event, Co-Presented by TD and Mantella Corporation, to benefit the world renowned Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) will be held at the Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto.
This year’s theme will have guests decide whether they are royal or rebel, punk or posh, toff or tough. Both sides of London are calling and guests are invited to come as the London they are, or want to be, and eat, drink and donate to the heartbeat of the city.
The Evergreen Brick Works will be transformed with food, fashion and entertainment featuring the contrasts of London.
To-date, the annual event has raised more than $3.5 million in support of some of the most critical needs at the hospital.
About Sick Kids
SickKids is Canada’s leading centre dedicated to improving children’s health and home to Canada’s largest, hospital-based child health research institute, caring for more than 100,000 patients every year. By attending Scrubs in the City 2016, guests are doing so much more than hitting the highlight of the social calendar. They’ll be raising funds for a new 3T MRI machine at SickKids. Quieter, faster, bigger, and more powerful, it will make the MRI experience less stressful for kids and family and give SickKids clinicians the best-in-class technology to deliver best-in-class care.
Guests will be treated to a surprise musical entertainment (think The Beatles, Spice Girls and David Bowie), delicious food and drinks, showcasing the “city of contrasts”.
In addition an exclusive silent auction is available to guests and non-guest alike including luxury one-of-a-kind items such as a Mulberry Kite Tote in Midnight Haircalf, a 14 Karat White Gold and Diamond Ring and an 18 Karat White Gold and Diamond Bangle Bracelet from Mark Lash, or Two night’s accommodation in an Owner’s Suite at the Fairmont Pacific Rim. Bidders can already access the auction items via SKScrubs.com.
Guests can further support SickKids by participating in an exciting draw for a chance to win diamond jewellery from Penwarden, a London travel package and a 2016 Mini Cooper. Total value of auction and draw prizes is over $120,000.
