I went to the Burgundy Brick Foundation’s 5th “Build the Future” benefit this past Saturday. It was super refreshing to be at an event that was strictly for a good cause, and I was honoured and proud to be supporting the Burgundy Brick Foundation team in their efforts to break the cycle of poverty and to change the community. A lot of us get caught up in our own lives, and struggles (which is understandable cause life can get real tricky), and forget that there’s other people out there that don’t even have a place to call home, so it was good to take a few moments out of my own life and support a cause that looks to improve the lives and quality of living for other members of our community.
So glad this was up, cause I had no idea where I was going… I suck with directions whatever 🙂
So good catching up with Karim!
such a lovely photo… too bad my camera was being such a jerk, but lovely nonetheless 🙂
Such good vibes off of this woman!!
just had to take another picture 🙂
the nom noms
bright colours + happy face… can’t go wrong!
fell IN LOVE with this jumpsuit…
it… I mean she deserved another picture 🙂
This was ONLY upstairs, downstairs was even more PACKED!
well done ladies 🙂
The music was good, food was yummy, there were LOTS of people, and Mira was an absolute sweetheart of a host 🙂 Thank you so much to the Burgundy Brick Foundation team for inviting me, and congratulations on a successful event. Wishing you all the best now and in the future!
peace and love

I’m really excited to be attending the Burgundy Brick Foundation‘s “Build the Future” benefit tonight. This is my first “Build the Future” benefit, and I’m honoured to be able to join the BBF team on their continued mission to promote homeownership in order to help break the cycle of poverty. The “Build the Future” benefit has supported Habitat for Humanity for the last 5 years, and has already raised over $175,000!!
