Dine on your purple food in your purple attire, taking in a view of Toronto from the top floor of the hotel! Plus, dress to impress and you could win a free membership to Futurecon 2! All for only $25!
(Proceeds benefit Futurecon’s year-round epilepsy awareness education. This is an alcohol-free, kid-friendly event. Space is limited. Please book early to avoid disappointment)
Tea Party Menu:

Come with purple pin-up gear to take part in this pay-what-you-can fundraising event. Please RSVP via email (future.confidential at gmail dot com) to reserve your spot! Space is limited!
Finally, from 8pm to 1am, join us for a cocktail party featuring a generous variety of hot and cold foods, live musical entertainment from Adam “Marty McFly” Hodgins and his band, and hear true stories of the trials and tribulations of living with epilepsy. Once again, the best-dressed attendees will get in free on New Year’s Eve! This event is also only $25 plus cash bar!

Both events will feature giveaways, shenanigans, and big announcements about how many ways you can party with Futurecon and support Epilepsy Toronto between now and 2012! But most importantly, by participating in Purple Day activities, you show people living with epilepsy and their families that they are not alone.
