Lunch with M & GWednesday, November 05, 2014
Well dressed cancer researchers?
Andrew and my aunt Wendy dressed head to toe in George C. Isn't she cool?!
There was a regal tenderness in the atmosphere when I entered the Art Gallery of Ontario just two days ago for the Fourth Annual Lunch with Margaret and George. Men and women dressed in their Monday's best were all present to support The Princess Margaret Cancer Foundation's mission to create the new gold standard of cancer care: Personalized Cancer Medicine. Created in 2000 by Toronto designer boutique George C.'s founders Lisa and George Corbo, the Annual Lunch with Margaret and George was an entirely whimsical event where Toronto's most fashionable gave Cancer a rather notable "screw you!" while staying perfectly balanced on 6-inch Louboutin heels (respect, seriously). As florally endowed bird cages hung from the Art Gallery's ceiling, savoury meals were politely engulfed in support of the Princess Margaret's innovative and leading edge Cancer therapy, the Immune Therapy Program. And afterwards, guests were lead to a secret location within the Art Gallery of Ontario for a fashion show featuring Paris-bred label, Ungaro, which I can only describe as a plethora of rich blues, fiery reds and yellows and intricately crafted lace that have been permanently imprinted into my cerebral cortex. A huge thank you to Lisa, George, Sophia and Antonio Corbo for inviting me to the most lovely event in support of a great cause, and to my aunt Wendy for hosting me.
