Rain, rain, go away … even though the rain deterred party goers from going outside to the tent covered patio on the third floor of the Shangri -La Hotel, spirits were high inside for the second annual Right to Play Ball. This fundraiser for the global organization, Right To Play, which brings sport and play programs to the children Africa, Asia, the Middle East and South America as well as First Nation groups here at home, had its share of fashionistas, designers and athletes in attendance: fashion designers Lucian Matis, Kirk Pickersgill & Stephen Wong ( Greta Constantine), model Stacey McKenzie, designer Glenn Dixon, Toronto Argonauts Jonathan Hood, and TV personality Glen Baxter. The namesake of one of the evening’s signature drinks ‘The Rosie Gold’- Rosie MacLennan, who won the gold medal for the trampoline at the summer Olympics in London, arrived early and stayed late. Music by DJ Tony Okungbowa (of the Ellen Degeneres Show) and DJ Jojo Flores had many showing their moves on the dance floor. The requisite party food- beef sliders was served along with more Asian inspired items as pulled BBQ duck and chicken. The funds from the event and its silent auction will help support the organization’s mission to use sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict, and disease in disadvantaged communities- to help children become children again.
