Yesterday The Wine Ladies were part of media and blogger teams from across Toronto, driven by our thirst for victory and our desire to do good. We competed in an adventurous, city-wide scavenger hunt. We were armed with an all new Chevrolet Spark and an iPad. Ours was the hot green colour called Jalapeño. Each team was given tasks to complete unique tasks around the city, using our unique Ipad as a clue giver. The winning team will receive $2,000 for the registered charity of their choice. Our Charity of choice for this event is The Angel Project. We will know if we win on Monday! Keeping our fingers crossed on that one.

The evening was a stupendous success with a few hundred ladies dressed in pjs and fine lingerie, from animal prints, to sexy bustiers, boxers and pignoirs, strutting their stuff walking the catwalk all for a great cause.

The fundraiser, held at the White Oaks Resort and Conference Centre www.whiteoaksresort.com in support of  the Daval Hospice www.davalhospice.ca had all the ingredients, the perfect recipe for the perfect party, with great food, wine and entertainment including a number of Niagara Falls finest firefighters; nothing like a man in uniform, ready to offer a helping hand.
