In Canada one out of every seven men will deal with prostate cancer. If a man lives long enough the chances are in his favor of being diagnosed.
Craig de Blois, VP Sales & Marketing with Lifford Wine Agency who put on tonight's event said"This year almost 26,000 Canadian men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer. 4,100 will die despite the face that it is an easy cancer to test for. That's why raising awareness about prostate cancer is crucial."
Held at Audi's Downtown Toronto showroom the stage was set for a night of fun, cigars and good manly meat. The food offerings for Boys Night Out were not the standard mini quiches but BBQ sliders, chips and more meat.
While fashion had its place with a display of what the stylish man will be wearing this year there were no fashion shows. Instead golfers could get tips on their swing, guys could test out racing an Audi at high speed on stimulators and then take a break in the cigar lounge.
Tables featured the best wine in the city for tasting and plenty of food to fill the men up. Pretty ladies were everywhere to give the guys plenty of eye candy.
Diva DJ Adryin kept the music pumping as the crowd swelled.
In the five years that Lifford has hosted Boys Night Out they have raised over $150,000 for The Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation and Prostate Cancer Canada. The goal for tonight is $75,000. That goal is realistic according to the staff at the ticket table. One of the volunteers said that they were doing exceptionally well with ticket sales ($100) just an hour into the event. In addition to the ticket sales is a silent and live auction that offered the guest some incredible deals including a Chef's Table for 6 to 8 at Earls, a set of Continental tires and private poker coaching with Quillan Nagel.
