Law Suits, a highly anticipated charity event, involving fashion, music, food, and drink, takes place on May 16, 2018, at 99 Sudbury, in Toronto. All proceeds from the event will go to the Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation.
Law Suits kicks off with a fashion show, featuring twenty-five esteemed Toronto lawyers, styled by ET Canada's Alicia McNamara, Tom Caldwell, of Thomas Henry Made, and Matthew Davignon. The fashion show maintains an eco-friendly focus, as only non-toxic products will be used on the participants. Following the fashion show, audience members will be captivated by the lineup of outstanding musical talent, featuring Miss Emily and The Mahones, as well as other special guests.
Delicious appetizers have been graciously donated by Toronto's hottest caterer, The Food Dudes. Law Suits has some additional exciting features, including DJ Cozmic Cat, a silent auction, outdoor food trucks carrying snacks next to the heated outdoor patio, and craft beer from The Four Degrees Brewing Company (a portion of all drink proceeds will be donated to the Cause).
We choose to fight. Fight with us.
Nearly one-half of all Canadians are expected to be diagnosed with cancer in their lifetime. Canadians 50 years of age and older will make up almost 90% of new cancer cases, and 80,800 Canadians will die of cancer this year.
This makes cancer the leading cause of death In Canada. We have made great progress so far in the fight against cancer, but there is more that must be done.
We choose to fight.
Fight with us.
