May 1, 2014 marks the 3rd Annual Right to Play Ball and we snagged an interview with host, Glen Baxter in preparation for the big night! Read on to see what Glen has to say about his connection with Right to Play and his thoughts on men’s fashion!
The 411 on Glen’s Involvement with RTP
Like most exciting stories, Glen’s began with his annual backpacking trips where he indulged in his passion for photography. He has traveled extensively throughout Asia, Africa and the Middle East and has shown his work in 5 solo exhibitions sponsored by Hugo Boss, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting a variety charities, including Right to Play! Glen has also spent time visiting Benin and Ethiopia to visit the children who benefit from the organization’s programs. His passion for photography coupled with his dedication towards helping others snowballed into creating the Right to Play Ball.
What to Expect for This Year’s Right To Play Ball
The venue for the first RTP Ball was in Keith Richard’s (Rolling Stones) daughter’s penthouse and last year, the ball was hosted in the Shangri-La with Ellen Degeneres’ DJ. This year, the ball will once again be held in the Shangri-La Hotel in Toronto with the added bonus of having Russell Peters DJ the event! As the ball continues to evolve and grow, the goal of the night is to have fun, raise awareness for RTP and of course, fundraise! Needless to say, the atmosphere is always fun, fresh and one of the highlights on the social calendar.
Glen Baxter’s Fashion Tips for Men
As one of Canada’s Best Dressed Men, Glen stresses the importance of investing in awesome blazers and suits! They are the staples of any man’s closet and can make any outfit look put together and effortless. A fun fact about his closet? Glen dresses exclusively in Hugo Boss Red and Black label — his style is inspired by the Italian classics. While men can only wish to have Glen’s closet (if that’s what they wish), Glen’s number one tip for the well-dressed man is: WEAR THE CORRECT SIZE!! So men, if you’re looking to revamp your wardrobe, find a tailor and wear the right fit for your body.
We can’t wait for the 3rd Annual Right to Play Ball this Thursday and hope to see you there too!
