Gentlemen's Evening 11.16.16

Gentlemen's Evening 11.16.16

Haberdasher & Co is thrilled to be partnered with Absolut Elyx & The Glenlivet to bring you an exclusive evening of Gentlemanly libations, food, fashion and revelry. 

In the early Spring I attended a networking event at the Donnelly Hospitality Suite (above Blackbird),  and the moment I stepped into the room, I knew that I needed to host a Gentlemen's event in this magnificently manly space. Now six months later and a huge thanks to our friends at Absolut Elyx & The Glenlivet, we're doing it! 
It's been my goal to make the evening fun, interactive, informative, collaborative, as well as an opportunity to give back. So we've teamed up with a couple of our favourite Gentlemanly Spirit brands and a few of our favourite local businesses that also cater to men and created a unique Gentlemen's Evening for you to enjoy.
Here's what you can expect! 
The dapper, Jacob Sweetapple, Absolut Elyx Brand Ambassdor & Ketih Trusler, The Gelnlivet Brand Ambassador will be pouring up tasty libations. As well as providing some amazing door prizes. So don't forget your business cards!
Blackbird will be providing snacks through out the evening.
Haberdasher & Co. will be doing a Holiday Fashion preview to give ideas on what to wear to those upcoming Christmas Parties. We'll also have a collection of in-stock suits and sport coats for you to try on and purchase for up to 40% off!
And be sure to purchase raffle tickets for a chance to WIN a Suit, valued at $800!
Giving back to our community raises all of us.
When I moved to Vancouver 12 years ago, I was in a major transition in my life and it was a struggle, but I have been lucky enough to have created a beautiful life for myself since. 
Majority of the time that I've lived here, I lived in an area that requires me to take a bus through the lower east side, to get to work. Twice a day, everyday, I would go through my worst nightmare and couldn't help but think that at any moment, that could be me.
Instead of dwelling on that possibility, I've used it as a catalyst to work hard and push myself through whatever demons or challenges I was working through, so that I could be in a position to help people struggling in the DTES. 
A couple of years ago, a friend of mine introduced me to an extraordinary organization, called Mission Possible. After meeting the incredible people that run it, I realized that they are doing the work that is making a difference in this community. So I have made it my personal mandate to help them in anyway I can. This is their Mission Statement.

People ~ Purpose ~ Paycheque

Mission Possible is a Christian humanitarian agency that transforms lives by helping those challenged by homelessness and poverty achieve a renewed sense of dignity and purpose through meaningful work. 

How can you help? At the event, we are providing you an opportunity to get your shoes shined, your hair cut cleaned up and your head shots updated, all by donation! What?! That's amazing!!

100% of the money raised will be donated to Mission Possible.

 So, we invite you to take advantage of all these great services that are being donated, and be as generous as you can!
