Slipstream in the City 2017

November 18, 2017 @ 7:30 pm - November 19, 2017 @ 1:00 am UTC+0

The Type 1 diabetes party of the year is here!

We’re bringing together our community members, donors, and partners, as well as friends and family, to help us celebrate a year-well-done.

Join us for Slipstream in the City 2017 at Lexus Downtown.

Slipstream in the City is the annual fundraising event for Connected in Motion (CIM) – but it’s more than a fundraiser – it’s a party, a celebration, and a chance to kick back.  It’s time to let loose and celebrate with friends, family, and support a kick-ass cause.

The event will be a night of celebration – a party for all with proceeds supporting CIM. The party is geared towards anyone 19+, not just the diabetes community, and will include awesome raffle prizes, media presentations (CIM-style!), complimentary late night snacks (they’re sounding delicious!) and, hey, we may even throw in a drink or two. We like you THAT much!

Invite your friends and family members! It’ll be a party to remember.

Ticket Information

Tickets are now on sale. $25 in advance. $40 at the door. (But buy in advance – It will help us know how many snacks to bring!)

All tickets are non-refundable. Keep up to date on all that is happening in preparation for the event by following us on instagram @ConnectedInMotion and tracking the hashtag, #SITC17.

When Should I Arrive? How do I get into the building?

Doors open at 7:30pm, and the Award Presentation and Film Screening will take place at 9:00pm.  The party is happening in the 3rd Floor Event space. When you arrive, come in the Southeast doors of the Lexus building, closest to the DVP. Look for the elevators in eh centre of the building and come on up! The store is open to the public until 9pm, so if it doubt, ask the receptionist!

Do I need to print a ticket?

Nope! We’ll have a guest list at the door. Just check in with your name!

What Should I Wear?

This party is cocktail dress-friendly! Feel free to shine your shoes! But above all, make sure you’re comfortable. We expect a wide variety of attire.
