Fundraiser | Canada : ) 150: A night in support of Camp Trailblazers | Event logo (2017)

Canada : ) 150

An evening to support

When: Saturday, June 17, 2017, from 7 to 10 pm

Where: Glasstronomy Studios, 2600 John St., Unit 108, Markham ON L3R 3W3 (between Don Mills Rd. and Woodbine Ave.)

Why: Proceeds from the event will go to AboutFace, an organization that provides advocacy and support for individuals and families with facial differences. Specifically, we are supporting Camp Trailblazers, a program that provides AboutFace youth with the opportunity to explore their abilities and develop friendships in a safe and accepting environment.

This not-for-profit social event is open to everyone, but especially Studio customers, members, and their friends and families.

Dress code: Wear whatever floats your boat, whether Canadian tuxedo (double denim), red and white, or camp classic. It might be a night to leave the tiara at home — unless that's your thing.

Activities: Heavy on the competitive (!), festive (!), fun (!), nostalgic (!), and tasty (!). Weather permitting, we will also be viewing some short films outside, made possible by kind permission of the National Film Board of Canada. What are you waiting for?
