Marrakech has been on my travel bucket list for as long as I can remember, and I can only hope to get to visit in person soon. In the meantime, however, I can get excited about ‘experiencing’ Marrakech at Scrubs In The City 2017 which is coming up on June 1st, 2017 right here in Toronto.
That may sound silly considering Scrubs In The City is a fundraising party that takes places nowhere near Morocco, but let me assure that the team behind this incredible annual fundraiser for SickKids goes ALL OUT each year.
I love that in recent years they’ve chosen a different major city for the theme of the party. Last year, we were ‘transported’ to London, England and treated to an epic performance by a Spice Girls cover band, and the year before that guests ‘landed’ in the wild and elaborate world of Tokyo.
This year, we’re headed to Morocco‘s Marrakech and I couldn’t be more thrilled to attend. If the amazing, food, decor and talent from the past three years that I have attended are any indication of what’s in store this year, well, I can tell you for sure that it will be OVER. THE. TOP. in the best and most magical way possible.
And the best thing about it? It’s all for a great cause!
Tickets for this event are $225 each and benefit the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) and to date the annual event has raised more than $4.3 million in support of some of the most critical needs at the hospital.
This year, Evergreen Brick Works will be transformed into the bright and bustling city of Marrakech where blazing hot days turn to vivid nights. Guests are invited to immerse themselves in all things Moroccan, as the wonders and delights of Marrakech are brought to life with fashion, food, décor, and entertainment.
An exclusive silent auction is available to guests and non-guests alike including luxury one-of-a-kind items such as a Breakfast at Tiffany’s experience, a private catered shopping event for 25 at The September Townhouse, and numerous luxury hotel stays at Fairmont properties worldwide. Beginning May 18, bidders can access the auction items via www.skscrubsauction.com. Guests can further support SickKids by participating in an exciting draw for a chance to win a dream vacation package which includes business class flights with Turkish Airlines and seven nights’ accommodation in a Jr. Suite at any Fairmont or Raffles location worldwide, or a $30,000 gift certificate for a vehicle of their choice from any Dilawri Group of Companies location across Canada. Total value of auction and draw prizes is over $100,000.
