A recent Wednesday night took your man on the city beat uptown to BMW Canbec for the Auto Moda fundraising event.  A mix of hot cars, great catered eats, celebs and fashion, the festivities benefit the Jewish General’s VIVO Fund which supports the hospital’s neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), one of the world’s foremost references in caring for premature babies.  Founded in 1999 by the Rizzolo family, the fund has since raised over $400 000 thanks to evenings such as this.

The soirée itself moved swiftly from mingling among the crowd while sampling souvlaki pitas from Au Vieux Duluth, and two delectable pastas courtesy of Buonanotte Catering (now ubiquitous at most events due to their super high-level quality and presentation!), to seated around a runway for speeches and a special fashion show featuring a myriad of labels worn by models from different milieux.



Emcees Orla Johannes and Geneviève Guérard more than engaged attendees in English and French, and presented both a moving video on the cause, as well as key speeches by Angelo Rizzolo, chairman of Auto Moda, and Dr. Apostolos Papageorgiu, the JGH’s Chief of Neonatology.

During a brief moment of technical malfunction, Orla, looking more than runway-ready herself after giving birth only last November, entertained guests by strutting her stuff down the runway, and both her and Geneviève provided for some humorous improvised one-liners.

Special guest Miss Teen Canada 2012, Megha Sandhu was on hand to show support, and CTV’s Tarah Schwartz and Sotheby’s own Alfee Kaufman rounded out the list of local celebs sashaying down the catwalk in fashions by Jones New York, Anne Klein, Rachel Roy, Jenna les collections, TNT, JoshuDavid, with jewellery by Anzie.
