Boobyball Presents Big Top Booby

Come one, come all to BIG TOP BOOBY - the greatest party on earth where glamour meets fearlessness in one explosively spectacular, circus-inspired night! Attracting the city’s best and brightest, Rethink Breast Cancer’s mainstay charity extravaganza, BOOBYBALL, will return to Toronto for the 13th time on Friday, October 17th with blazing cocktails, festival foods, strong man competitions, kooky contortionist, tiger tamers, fortune tellers, and just about anything that pushes the limits of amazement.

This year’s tremendous BOOBYBALL troupe, made up of Toronto’s brightest young philanthropists, will be transforming the one and only KOOL HAUS (132 Queens Quay E, Toronto, ON – www.koolhaus.com) into a three-ring circus. Never has there been a better excuse to don some feathers, pull out the corsets, slap on a lady beard or bring out your inner ringmaster! Over 1,500 guests will stand spellbound as they witness spine chilling attractions and enjoy a variety of concessions and libations, all while getting their freak-show on and dancing the night away to the musical stylings of Brendan Fallis and Guillaume Viau.

“Over the past 13 years, Boobyball has become a “must attend” fundraising event for young professionals in Toronto, which has now also expanded into Calgary and Winnipeg,” says MJ Decoteau, Executive Director Rethink Breast Cancer. “A lot of credit for Boobyball’s success can be given to the fun and creative themes that we come up with every year, which compel and inspire attendees to support the important work we do with young women with breast cancer. Big Top Booby will be no exception – we promise an event that will not disappoint!”

BIG TOP BOOBY’s esteemed ringleaders (co-chairs Whitney Pizale and Ilona Khoyker, and honourary chairs Ainsley Kerr and Aliya–Jasmine Sovani), promise ticket-holders a night of high flying fun, while raising funds for a very important cause. This year’s goal is to raise $225,000 for the event, with proceeds allocated to help expand innovative programs for young women with breast cancer.
