Time: 8PM – 1AM
Location: The Hoxton, 69 Bathurst St, Toronto

On Thursday, June 12th, Pants Off for Prostate Cancer has returned for its 5th year as one of Toronto’s hottest – and most revealing – events. This year, we were grabbing our sticks, dropping the puck (and our pants), and hitting the ice for Pants off: Protect Your 5-Hole, a hockey and ice inspired fundraiser that guarantees a slap shot evening. People grabbed their helmet pads, and – errmm- their jockstrap, and joined a team of 500 of Toronto finest as they check their pants at the door and celebrated bare legs in support of the research and support programs of Prostate Cancer Canada.

All Proceeds from Pants Off for Prostate Cancer have brought benefit Prostate Cancer Canada — the only national foundation dedicated to the elimination of the disease through research, education support and awareness.

Congratulations to @ErikaKonori that won two tickets by retweeting
the Pants off Prostate Cancer post!

Meeting At The Hoxton – An Event Planners Dream

The Hoxton is the latest venture by business partners Jesse Girard and Richard Lambert, – and comedian Kenny Hotz – the guys behind Parts & Labour and The Social.  The venue is named after London’s Hoxton neighbourhood and is located in Toronto’s hip King West area steps from the Thompson Hotel.

The Hoxton highlights include a great stage area, state of the art sound system making the acoustics phenomenal, and a 8,000 sq. ft. space that can hold up to 600 people.  The main idea was to keep the space versatile, with lack of excessive décor and the large number of installed flat screens it is an event planners dream. The Hoxton allows customized decor and can accommodate the bells and whistles for whatever event the venue is hosting, whether it is corporate or private bookings.

In just over a month the Hoxton has played host for events celebrating TIFF, Fashion Week, store launches, and this week is their first large scale fundraiser “Fireball” (

Expect The Hoxton to be a crowd and corporate pleaser. and @the_Hoxton
