Brandan's Eye Research FundBrandan’s Eye Research Fund (BERF) hosted its first-ever Blast from the Past event, an 80s-themed dinner-dance fundraiser at La Primavera Hospitality & Convention Centre in Woodbridge. BERF is dedicated to raising funds for international eye research, with hopes that it will lead to a cure for blindness. The event was sold out, with 500 guests showing up in retro 80s costumes. Prizes were handed to the best female, male and couple costumes. Guest appearances included Gene Simmons and Michael Jackson impersonators, along with Toronto Mayor Rob Ford. TSN’s Michael Landsberg from Off the Record was the emcee, while The Lost Boys Band provided live entertainment. Guests also had the opportunity to take photos with the Stanley Cup and former Maple Leafs player Ron Ellis. A total of $115,000 was raised.
