Our First event was a grand success! There was a line up before the doors even opened and by 8:30pm, we were 5 bodies short of capacity. There was a steady interest in our promotional draw table, which gave away 7 prizes throughout the evening.
A special thanks goes out to our sponsors Modrobes, NHL, Conair, Toronto Symphony Orchestra, Electronic Nation, Destiny Events and Canadian Music Week, and the staff at C’est What. For our promo materials, a big thank you goes out to Got Merch. Also, thanks to After Runnymede, Mike Celia, Sean Pinchin, Andrew Austin, Mandippal and Nala for your amazing performances.
Don Wilson, thanks for holding it all together as our MC. To Kim Smith for greeting everybody with a friendly smile, Kelly Menezes for lending your decorating skills and coordinating the raffle table, Milos Paprica for lending your filming and photo skills, Fraser Douglas from Snap Newspaper for covering the event, our friends from Thyroid Cancer Canada and to every single other person that showed support and came out; Thank you!
Together, we took a step in a positive direction with endless amazing possibilities. We were able to write a cheque to Thyroid Cancer Canada for $500.00, and more importantly, we shared an evening of creating inspiration and awareness for people affected by thyroid cancer. We hope to see all your faces again at VOL II, stay tuned for more details. Check out our photo gallery here.
