An exclusive VIP Busker Soiree shook up the downtown streets of Yonge on August 13th. The Toronto International BuskerFest for Epilepsy returns in just a few days for another electrifying year!
All in support of Epilepsy Toronto, the soiree was held at the charming Aperture Room and OTSN was there to take in all the exquisite events the evening had to offer. We spoke with NBA Basketball star, Tristan Thompson, Canada’s Queen of R&B Soul, Jully Black and Toronto’s Mayor John Tory. The Busker Soiree was produced by internationally acclaimed designers, Glen Peloso & Jamie Alexander and featured the exceptional cuisine of Oliver & Bonacini.
When Epilepsy Toronto established Buskerfest in 1999 the idea was simple - create dynamic entertainment while raising funds and public awareness of epilepsy. The neurological disorder affects over 40,000 Torontonians and Epilepsy Toronto is committed to improving the lives of these people through support groups, employment support, counseling and programs.
The Night is ‘Yonge’ Busker Soiree was an event unlike any other and served as a gentle tease to the upcoming Toronto International Buskerfest taking place August 27th– 30th. Be sure to catch the last major festival of the summer all in support of Epilepsy Toronto!
