Scrubs in the City Gala 2014 Soirée Under the Stars for SickKids
Started thirteen years ago, Scrubs in the City’s annual fundraiser for SickKids Hospital was one of the City’s most anticipated events. Like previous years, the gala was held at the Evergreen Brick Works in Toronto.
This “Soirée Under the Stars”, where everyone was a vision of white, raised over $450,000 for the SickKids Operating Suites Redevelopment Project and more than $3 million in total. SickKids performs over 12,000 surgeries on children from around the world every year. Committee members Suzanne Rogers and Sylvia Mantella, as always, were knock outs in their white evening wear as were hosts Cheryl Hickey and Sangita Patel.
Caterers of the VIP reception, Marigold and Onions, served us hors d’oeuvres of steak with quail eggs, duck tacos, scallops and bacon, salmon tartar and chicken lollipops with a spicy aioli.
Food stations featuring lobster or truffle mac and cheese, steak sandwiches, and duck sausage tacos were located around the outdoor room decorated in white.
The great band and performers throughout the night kept everyone entertained.
Soiree Under the Stars was another successful Scrubs in the City fundraiser! Next year’s event will be held on Thursday, June 4, 2015, save the date!!!
