About

Now in its 13th year, Scrubs in the City has become one of Toronto's most anticipated social events of the season and has raised a total of more than $2.4 million for SickKids.

Net proceeds from Soirée Under the Stars will support the SickKids Operating Suites Redevelopment Project. SickKids performs more than 12,000 surgeries annually to some of the most critically ill children from around the world — more than any other paediatric hospital in Canada. The current operating suites at SickKids are 25 years old and the existing equipment has become obsolete. Increased volume and complexity of surgeries mean that updating and expanding this facility is necessary to save young lives. Just as SickKids is consistently innovating paediatric research and care, the hospital’s technology must reflect that mandate. Your philanthropy at this year’s event will be the first step towards updating this vital centre.

It's All Style to Me

June 8, 2013

On June 6th, over 800 guests braved the brutal cold snap and heavy rain to attend the 12th annual Scrubs in the City event hosted by Sick Kids Hospital. The street chic block party themed fundraiser was held at the Evergreen Brick Works and raised more than $400,000 for the new Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning.

The evening included delicious “street” food and cocktails, a variety of entertainment acts, including Lil JaXe, an incredible 14 year old rapper and a dance party featuring DJ Danny Floh Back. The silent auction and raffle featured purses by Alexander McQueen, Marchesa, and Salvatore Ferragamo as well as designer jewelry, vacations and unique ‘experiential’ opportunities.

“We were thrilled with the turn out of this year’s Scrubs in the City event, and we want to thank all of our guests and sponsors who made the evening truly memorable,” said Amy Milne, Director, Events, SickKids Foundation. “All of the funds raised make an important difference for the thousands of families whose lives are deeply impacted by the research and discoveries that happen at SickKids.”

Proceeds from Block Party support the ‘new kid on the block’, the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning, a state-of-the-art building that will rock the Discovery District at Bay and Elm streets and change the game in children’s health. Set to open in September 2013, the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning will bring together over 2,000 scientists, trainees and child health research staff from SickKids and encourage research collaboration among scientific and clinical perspectives to accelerate discoveries and foster new knowledge. To date, Scrubs in the City has raised nearly $2.5 million for SickKids.

She Does the City

June 7, 2013

WOW-WOW-WOW! Scrubs in the City Presents BLOCK PARTY was our favourite gala of the season by far! In its 12th year, the annual fundraising event for SickKids brought out more than 800 influential movers and shakers for an unforgettable night at The Evergreen Brick Works!

We danced in bubbles, chased a Chinese paper dragon through the crowd, waved our hands in the air, bid on an Alexander McQueen purse, watched local graffiti artist Spud create an awesome mural, and enjoyed all the delicious “street food” on offer, from fried chicken and waffles to a rainbow of gelato.

The graffitied walls of the remarkable Brick Works space provided a perfect backdrop for the BLOCK PARTY theme; partygoers in bright hues looked gorgeous when posing for pics against the dramatic, and genuine, street art.

Since inception, Scrubs in the City has raised over $2 million for SickKids. This year alone, they raised over $400,000! All proceeds will go towards the Peter Gilgan Centre for Research and Learning, set to open in September 2013. Bringing together over 2,000 scientists and researchers, the new centre promises to be a game changer in children’s health, not to mention a 750,000 square foot architectural feat.

Congratulations to the Scrubs in the City committee! Not only are they making a significant contribution for the future of SickKids, but they know how to throw one helluva party—and do so in the best pumps we’ve ever seen.

Neighbourly love abounds! We can’t wait for next year.
