Bloomex Provides Flowers for Epilepsy Toronto VIP Event

Bloomex was delighted to be asked to provide all the flowers for recent VIP event in Toronto! Epilepsy Toronto hosted an exclusive VIP evening in downtown Toronto, to support their amazing cause. 

Hosted by NBA Basketball star Tristan Thompson and CTV News' Andria Case, this exclusive VIP soiree took place on August 13, 2015. Produced by internationally acclaimed designers, Glen Peloso & Jamie Alexander, the event was held at the exquisite Aperture Room in the heart of historic Downtown Yonge.

The evening began at 6:30 p.m. Guests were able to view the items up for auction, as well as sample the incomparable cuisine of Oliver & Bonacini. They enjoyed fun advance performances from the upcoming Toronto International BuskerFest, and were treated to a wonderful performance by Canada's own Queen of R&B, Jully Black.The sold out event was truly a magical evening and a big success for all! 

Tristan Thompson graciously agreed to be honorary chair; he founded the Amari Thompson Fund in support of his younger brother who lives with epilepsy.

Bloomex was delighted to donate and create the elegant floral centerpieces for this VIP event, as well as some beautiful bouquets to decorate the bar and buffet area, in the event’s premier colour scheme of purple, red and white. Bloomex was also pleased to donate a large gourmet gift basket full of treats to the live auction, with all proceeds going to support Epilepsy Toronto.

This event was a kick off for the very exciting 2015 edition of the Toronto International Buskerfest Festival. The Festival is now the largest epilepsy event in the world and North America's largest street performer festival! Performers from all over the world will provide the most creative and exciting entertainment for all ages, in the heart of the Downtown Yonge district from August 27- 30.
