Wrap Yourself in Pink in Support of Breast Cancer Research
On FRI SEP19 Peter Nygård, Chairman & Founder of NYGÅRD International, hosted Wrap Yourself in Pink, a charity event in Support of Breast Cancer Research, at the Nygård Fashion Kenaston Store location. A sell-out crowd of over 500 VIPs, NYGÅRD associates, suppliers and customers were treated to a magnificent runway show, featuring Nygård's Fall/Winter collection and a number of interactive fashion workshops.
The evening began with Jim Bennett, President & CEO of NYGÅRD, presenting a cheque for $600,000 to the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. "Breast cancer awareness and research continues to be top of mind for our associates, 12 months of the year - and we are honoured to be involved with the CBCF," he said before handing the cheque to CBCF Associate Director, National Corporate Programs, Jane Knox, a breast cancer survivor herself.
After mixing and mingling over wine and h'ors doeuvres, the excited guests took their seats, forming a runway for an unforgettable fashion show that included bagpipers and West Highland terriers. The show reached its crescendo when 10 breast cancer survivors, dressed in the latest from Bianca Nygård Weekend, made their modeling debut to the thunderous applause of the audience.
Following the fashion show, guests were treated wardrobing sessions and a number of special draws, including one provided by Hypnotic Spa to win a complete makeover.
