Invitation: The Blue Bash

By Kerry Freek

This week marks World Water Day (March 22) and the second annual Canada Water Week (March 19-25). As water professionals, Water Canada’s readers are well aware that nearly one billion people have no access to clean drinking water, and a further 2.6 billion have no basic sanitation like toilets and latrines. This constitutes one of the most lethal, yet solvable, public health emergencies affecting the developing world today.

In October 2012, we’re taking water awareness to new heights. Joined by Ben Mulroney (CTV’s eTalk), Ray Civello (founder, Civello Salons), and Peter Bregg (nationally renowned photographer), I’ll be part of a team of 15 people who will scale Mt. Kilimanjaro to support WaterCan’s projects in East Africa. Collectively, our goal is to raise $100,000. It’s time for you to join the party.

When?
Wednesday, April 25, 2012, 7:00-10:30 pm

What?
Mingle with over 150 colleagues from the professional water and infrastructure communities at a cocktail reception at Toronto’s Steam Whistle Roundhouse (255 Bremner Boulevard) featuring special guests Alex and Tyler Mifflin of TVO’s The Water Brothers, plus live DJs, dancing, and door prizes.

Why?
To support WaterCan’s Climb for Life fundraising effort. All ticket proceeds will directly support WaterCan’s work on water and sanitation projects in East Africa.
