Phil Kessel mixing drinks. Joffrey Lupul serving sliders. Tyler Bozak sitting at your table. This only happens at one event. The Players’ Gala presented by BlackBerry.
Tonight the entire Toronto Maple Leafs team, Toronto Raptors, and Toronto FC will stroll down the Black carpet with supporters of the MLSE Foundation to raise money for the Regent Park revitalization project. A very cool event that brings MLSE teams together once a year.
While there is a lot going on tonight make sure you’re following along on twitter: @MapleLeafs, @BrookePashley, @MLSEFoundation and of course tune in to the livestream at 8:30pm to see which Leafs players stop by. And if you’ve got your tickets and are coming make sure to use #PlayersGala in all of your posts.
Today’s throwback features a few snaps from last year’s event. One of the coolest parts of the event is seeing the teams mingle with each other. Here’s a pic of Tyler Bozak (Flowzak at that time) and Landry Fields from the Raptors. Then a photo of Phil Kessel, and Nazem Kadri taking a break from manning the bar to sign a few autographs. And lastly, your hosts, Kat (@MatterofKat) from the Raptors, Rachel (@RachelBonnetta) from Toronto FC, and yours truly.
