The mother with the helmet. That’s why I volunteer at Epilepsy Toronto, and that’s why I hope you’ll attend their one-of-a-kind gala, Scotiabank BuskerBall, next Tuesday August 21st in St. Lawrence Market. You’ll have a good time and you’ll feel great about it.
Because of the spectacular live entertainment from the top performers at the upcoming Scotiabank BuskerFest, this is a gala like no other. Leave your cocktail dress or tux in the closet and wear something fun and funky. There will be a live and silent auction and delicious cuisine from select establishments in the St. Lawrence Market neighbourhood. Oh yes, and free booze. Your host will be Robin Hibberd – Executive Vice President, Retail Products & Services, Scotiabank – and the MC will be Lance Brown, sports anchor for CTV News Toronto.
The mother I refer to is Whitney. She had her epilepsy under control. She had finished university, got married, and was enjoying a thriving career – until the third trimester of her second pregnancy. Suddenly she started having 5 to 7 drop seizures, characterized by falling, every day. Suddenly she couldn’t hold her child, cook or drive a car, and she had to wear a helmet and use a wheelchair to protect herself. But with support from the good people at Epilepsy Toronto and two craniotomies, Whitney improved dramatically.
Now you can support her, and the 40,000 other people in the GTA like her who suffer from epilepsy, by going to BuskerBall. And if you just can’t make it, there are 3 other things you can do:
1.Be an event sponsor, for as little as $500 and as much as $5,000.
2.Donate a product or service to the silent or live auctions.
3.Send this email to someone else and see if they can go.
Tickets are $150 and tax receipts will be issued, so you can write off $100 of it. It’s also a great opportunity to entertain clients. *Buy your tickets, be an event sponsor or donate an auction item by clicking here, or by calling 416.964.9095.*
**Plus, I am making you this special offer: For every ticket you buy, I will give you two signed copies of my new book (Brand: It Ain’t the Logo), now #1 on the Globe and Mail‘s list of business bestsellers, a $30 value, for free.
Or, buy a sponsorship for $1,500 (Silver: includes 5 tickets) and I will give your organization a 60-minute presentation on branding best practices, also for free (but I’ll make it priceless 🙂 ). Buy a sponsorship for $2,500 (Gold: includes 8 tickets) or $5,000 (Platinum: includes 12 tickets) and I’m sure we can figure something else out.**
Thanks very much – and prepare to feel great.
