Last night, I got invited to an exclusive fashion event that was a great kick off to a Pre-TIFF party. More fitting were displays of womenswear and menswear of Express Clothing lines that showcased the various fashion style and combination that are perfect for people goers who are attending TIFF Events.
Meet me in Africa is a charitable program supported by the Public Relations Agency VOCAB Communications, which is based in Toronto, Canada. In 2012, Founder Chrissy Newton Was on a charitable media trip with MTV Canada and Life Momentum looking to support a local Tanzanian youth based program. Through her travels, Chrissy was introduced to an orphanage in Arusha,Tanzania.
Chrissy has developed a great relationship with the teachers and children in Arusha and her “Meet me in Africa” was born. Every year, Chrissy and a team of volunteers will visit the orphanage and work directly on construction, education and agriculture.
Last night, a group of supporters purchased tickets, showing their support with this charitable and meaningful program at SpeakEasy21, which is a nice hotspot restaurant located in the heart of the financial district. Rain or shine, nothing stopped people from supporting this event, especially SpeakEasy21 provided a patio with a rooftop that protect the patrons even sitting at the patio. Lots of musicians, artists and dancers came out to perform and showing their support at this event. It was a fun and meaningful evening and we hope this charitable event raise lots of money for such a meaningful program by Chrissy Newton.

As you know, MoVernie is always on the MOVE. This time, with his crew, covering one of the hottest events of the summer. After it’s successful inaugural event from last year, VELD is returning again this weekend, with an even stronger lineup of performers including the likes of Armin Van Buuren, Iggy Azalea, Zedd, Calvin Harris, just to name a few.
Rain dropped a bit during the early afternoon but it hold up for the rest of the evening. Crowd got bigger and bigger and having a great time in the open field at Downsview Park. That’s what I like about VELD, it created a “Tomorrow Land” type of feel to it because the big main stage was built from scratch and in the big open field. Baccardi Tent was awesome as well, providing a second stage for performers to enjoy the beach sand type of atmosphere.
Here are the photos that was taken yesterday. VELD Round 2, are you ready for more?
If you are staying in the city and have nothing to do, it’s never too late to purchase VELD Tickets. Click here to check for ticket availability.
