Octopus chandelier lights the way for Power Ball 2015

Posted by Amanda Storey / June 5, 2015

power ball torontoThe 2015 Power Ball: Appetite for Excess was really weird. In a very good way. The event took place at the Power Plant where party goers embraced the theme of excess as they engaged with edible art installations.

Octopus hung from a chandelier-type fixture had guests chopping off tentacles, while a wall of roast pork forced guests in all their finery to carve meat off the bone. Adding to the frenetic energy in the room, performers on the balcony taunted guests, threw potato chips, and begged to be thrown up some bread or a handful of cheese.

Following the food performance, the space opened up into a series of rooms containing different art installations and open bars. Outside on the waterfront patio, seafood and fire-roasted chicken tacos were served while guests played in inflatable kiddie pools.

Think it's all too crazy to be true?

Check out all the action in this photo gallery from the 2015 Power Ball fundraiser.
