The 2013 Theatre Ball
The 25th annual Theatre Ball (held this year at Toronto’s Carlu) raised $300,000 for the Canadian Stage—funds that will go directly toward initiatives such as staging shows (300 performances a year!), employing actors and educating 5,000 students annually.
In return for their tickets, the socialite-, politician- and (of course) entertainer-heavy crowd were treated to a birthday-themed party, complete with champagne tower, silent auction, multi-course meal (b-day cake was the finale, of course), live musical performances and a chance to be snapped with their high-school crush: proud Canuck Jason “Brandon Walsh (*sigh*)” Priestley.
