After such a jam-packed calendar last week, I’m looking fwd to a bit of a breather this week but…. I’m meeting with Tim Progrosh tomorrow (Tuesday July 22) to talk over this year’s promotions for the annual Canadian Comedy Awards…
…hopefully we’ll come up with some innovative ideas for online engagement and putting more bums-in-seats at the awards gala in Ottawa mid-September. www.canadiancomedy.ca
On Saturday July 26th, the big Coeur d’Alene auction takes place in Reno, Nevada, and our favourite artist, Bruce K. Lawes has his stunning historic portrait of George Armstrong Custer imagined from his Gettysburg Civil War campaign (“Custer: Before the Storm” 5ft high by 3 1/2ft wide) on the block. We’re hoping for bids in excess of $75K and the chat on the street is that it could reach into the six figures. Good luck, Bruce! You can follow Custer’s journey via Bruce’s Facebook: www.facebook.com/bklawesart
Then on Sunday July 27th, Whisky & Spice takes their awesome hand-crafted gourmet flavoured mustards to McEwan’s up at Shops at Don Mills in Toronto for a sampling event between noon and 5pm. Lots of products in various sizes available for sale – great for your Sunday night roast, steaks or family BBQ! www.whiskyandspice.ca
Let us know if you have anything exciting coming up in Toronto that we may be able to support or bring our clients to.
