The highly anticipated 11th Scrubs in the City fundraiser for SickKids Hospital was held at the Evergreen Brick Works. This year’s theme was the Secret Garden and the organizing committee headed by Event Chair Molly Fitzpatrick – and including Caroline Cohen, Lauren Habib, Jacqueline Johnson, Sandra Keeley, Lucinda Kogan, Stephanie Lewis, Sylvia Mantella, Amy Milne, Julia Mordini, Suzanne Rogers, Patty Seigel and Kirsten van der Griend – played up both the garden and the secret elements to the fullest at this wonderful community environmental centre.
Toronto’s medical community was joined by the business and social elite as well as celebrities like Hilary Farr (host of Love It or List It), to support this worthy cause. Hosted by Mary Kitchen, Entertainment Anchor for CityNews, the night was full of pampering, culinary delights as well as plentiful surprises. From the Burt’s Bees massages and Mombacho Cigars to the decadent hors d’oeuvres to the surprise concert by Shawn Desman to the flower cookies to the aerial performance to the raffle and silent auction to the non-stop groovin’ by DJ Floh Back Productions.
This was truly a night for fashionistas as all gathered together in their sexiest and sassiest outfits for this year’s cocktail party. The event began with a VIP reception but quickly transitioned to a very happening party full of adventurous, trendy partygoers. As guests mingled, aerial performances and some unexpected characters made an appearance. The biggest thrill came when Shawn Desman performed a high energy concert that really revved up the crowd.
The décor was very well thought out with the photo booth being a rose wall and the dessert being flower sugar cookies in all colours, just like a rose garden.
