One of them, the amazing Amanda Brugel, who has now been on our show 3 times(!) has created a non-profit organization dedicated to raising money for charities that have a strong focus on improving the lives of women and children, aptly called Brug’s Army, check out their Facebook page here.
Amanda and her team have organized their first event, a small intimate affair to raise funds for the Holland Bloorview Kids Rehabilitation Hospital Foundation, you can find their official site here.
Held on Sunday, June 2 from 6pm to 9pm at Jack Astor’s in St.Lawrence Market, it’ll give those who purchase tickets, for only $50, to chat and mingle with stars from television shows like Seed, Lost Girl, Stargate: Atlantis, Degrassi, Hannibal, Orphan Black, Defiance, Mr. D and Murdoch Mysteries. Not bad right?!?
The list is a who’s who of Canadian television, and it’s amazing how many Sue and I actually know personally now (I never would have thought that two years ago!).
Hang and chat with Amanda, Adam Korson, Carrie-Lynn Neales, Rick Howland, Paul Amos, Kate Hewlett, Zoie Palmer, Trenna Keating, Kevin Hanchard, Chloe Rose, Cory Lee, Stephanie Anne Mills, Vanessa Matsui, Lara Jean Chorostecki and more!!!
Did I mention Sue and I will be there too?
Tickets are going fast, and I also know that this would appeal to people outside of Toronto as well, there are fans and members of Brug’s Army all over the world… but that’s ok! You can simply donate as well with $50 or $25 donations, all of it benefiting the Holland Bloorview!
Buy your tickets for the event (NOW THEY ARE GOING QUICK!!!) or donate to the event here.
It’s going to be a fantastic evening, and I can’t wait to catch up with some folks I haven’t seen in a while (I’m looking at you Rick and Chloe) as well as chatting with new friends (Carrie, Lara-Jean, Adam!) and making some new ones!!!
It’s a great cause, it’ll be a great night! Help as you can, and make sure you like Brug’s Army on Facebook and on Twitter @BrugsArmy .
Please come out and say hi!
