It went down this past Thursday, May 1st. The annual Right to Play Ball, which raises funds (aptly enough) for Right to Play – an NFP that uses “sport and play to educate and empower children and youth to overcome the effects of poverty, conflict, and disease in disadvantaged communities.” Overtaking the stunning Shangri-La Hotel in downtown Toronto, the Right to Play Ball had a who’s who of the Toronto scene decked out in their finest threads, ready to revel in the annual soiree. Canadian funnyman Russell Peters blared out a unique playlist of 80s classics and feel good tunes – controlling the crowd with his lithe dips and amped up hits. Wine ran out early, but there were plenty of other sippers to help loosen up the city’s philanthropists and tastemakers. The result was the event of the season, for one of the greatest causes we could ever hope to support: children, and by way of their fostering, our future.
