EVENT DETAILS! SAVE THE DATE!

November has increasingly become known as Movember. It is the month many men start to sport mustaches in Canada and around the world in a joined gallant effort to raise awareness and money for prostate cancer and male mental health initiatives. We call these brave men, Mo Bros! But there has been an increase in Mo Sistas as well, wanting to help with the cause by raising awareness and money, because after all, the more the merrier! So we’ve come together to join in on the fundraising fun with high hopes to raise a sizable donation for this more than worthy cause.

Even BIGGER News! AfterWorkDrinksTO has partnered with Social Media Cafe Toronto to make this an official Movember party to support the fight against Prostate Cancer.

This is an official Movember party to support the fight against Prostate Cancer.

Your donation of $10 advance ticket ($15 at the door), includes 1 free sample ½ pint of Spearhead beer and 1 raffle ticket. 100% of the money raised will go to Movember!

This is an Official Movember Event, registered and certified by Movember Canada which is even Mo’awesome!

The event will also have the following:

– Special Guest Speaker at 8 pm

– Movember head office peeps are joining us tonight too!

– Extra raffle tickets can be purchased at the event at $2 per ticket, $3 for 5 tickets or $10 for an arm’s length **RAFFLE IS AT 9PM**

Come join us for drinks after work starting at 5:30 pm on March 2nd, 2012 and be apart of an interesting, talented group of socially active professionals who like to unwind and have fun at the end of a hectic work week. AfterWorkDrinksTO is about networking, meeting new people, reconnecting with friends and enjoying yourself. This will be our second big event and we couldn’t be more excited.

Invite friends and spread the word. Help us bring back happy hour one drink at a time. Hope to see you there!

AfterWorkDrinksTO Event Details:

We are returning to The Ballroom at 145 John Street, Toronto (corner of Richmond and John). We’ll be upstairs in “The Locker Room”. Ask for the AfterWorkDrinksTO reservation at the hostess stand.

Why? Because it’s a great spot to be yourself, engage in conversation and challenge others to a game of ping pong, Foosball, air hockey, bowling, and even Xbox!

And what’s even better? They have $4 domestic pints and $4 martinis till 10 pm! At that price, you can’t resist.

If you have a business card, bring it with you. There will be a couple prize giveaways and we’ll be doing a business card swap!
