Ladies' Night for Lupus Research
Ontario's top premium wine importer, Lifford Wine Agency, is hosting Ladies' Night on Thursday, April 16, 2009 from 7:00 to 9:30 pm at the Fermenting Cellar in the Distillery District. Proceeds from this elegant event will benefit lupus research at Toronto Western Hospital.
Guests can taste a variety of exclusive wines, savour exquisite gourmet food and hobnob with HGTV's Hottest Duo, Colin McAllister and Justin Ryan, hosts of Colin and Justin's Home Heist. They will entertain guests with their razor wit and wicked humour and may even provide some tips on home design matters like manicures, knotty pine and why you should always keep a close eye on the family dog! Every guest will also receive a copy of Colin & Justin's HOME HEIST STYLE GUIDE, valued at $32.
This is the third year that Lifford has hosted an event in support of lupus. The event was previously called Women & Wine. Because Lifford hosts the popular Boys' Night Out event each year in July, in support of prostate cancer research, the name for this event was changed to Ladies' Night for consistency.
Lupus is an under-recognized, life-threatening autoimmune disorder that affects 15,000 Canadians. There is no known cause. Women are 10 times as likely as men to develop this chronic and complex disease. Lupus is difficult to diagnose as it often mimics other diseases. There is currently no cure.
