Bell Celebrity GalaBell Celebrity Gala

The Bell Celebrity Gala, the largest celebrity-attended fundraiser in Canada, took place October 23, 2008 where stars like George Stroumboulopoulos, George "Rush" St-Pierre, illScarlett, Finger Eleven and the likes came out to play! As we entered the venue via the midway experience, we were taken back by the outdoor amusement park complete with a working rollercoaster, arcade games, acrobats, "circus animals" and a cocktail reception area. The next area we entered was "Under the Big Top" where we dined on a medley of seafood, chicken and beef tenderloins and a wonderfully displayed dessert. Live performances were given by Kreesha Turner (look out for her in our next issue), Serena Ryder, Suzie McNeil, Keisha Chanté with Finger Eleven as the headliner act. All in all, the evening was filled with fun and tons of energy!

Karmen taking full advantage of the carnival games. She even got Alex Norman of illScalett to hold her purse and phone while she humiliates herself and scores a whopping 62 points on the hammer game!!!




The following is for all of our die-hard Hedley fans! Jacob Hoggard started off the set with For The Nights We Can't Remember on the piano followed by Old School with the rest of his band! These guys are amazing live - they not only sound great but have a wicked stage presence! Kudos to Hedley!
