A week has past and the city is still talking about Planet Booby. The second installment of the much anticipated fundraising event went interplanetary and you better believe crowd showed up ready for launch. This year’s interstellar theme brought out all sorts of amazing outfits and gave the whole evening a surreal quality. Dancing Storm Troopers alongside the occasional alien made partying in space the new official number one on our bucket list. The night began with a quick photo shoot and a trip to the oxygen bar, but of course right after we were handed a glass of champagne. From there it was a whirlwind of out of this world entertainment; between the costumes, the unreal music, the bumpin’ dance floor, the beauty bar or outstanding decorations there was no shortage of good times to be had. As the night progressed the party roared on, everyone continued to mingle and the dance floor became the place to be. Zuki, DJ’s A.O.K.S. and Scott Kamins kept the party going to say the least.
For those of you who do not know about The Boobyball, it was created in 2002 by a group of devoted young women who wanted to support their friend Sarah O’Regan, who at 23 years old was diagnosed with aggressive, advanced breast cancer. It has now become one of the most prominent fundraising events in Toronto, Calgary, Winnipeg and Ottawa. To illustrate what a massive success this event has become, Boobyball has raised over 3.4 million dollars for Rethink Breast Cancer over the past 13 years, and plans to raise over $500,000 this year alone. It is spectacular to see events like this happen in our city; it is a beautiful thing when people get together to support such an important cause.
Needless to say the night was beyond amazing and most importantly you were reminded of how important it is to bring awareness to such a meaningful cause. None of this would be possible without the dedication of Jordan Meagher, the chair of the event, and the entire committees responsible for making all of this happen. We would like to give sincere congratulations to everyone involved; it is wonderful to see such dynamic individuals working so hard in hopes to change people’s lives for the better. Much Love from The Charcoal Collaborative and remember that cancer affects us all so donate today.
