UPDATE: August 10, 2014: Due to unforeseen circumstance, SickKids, Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation and Fan Expo decided to postpone the inaugural SuperHero Ball to August 28, 2015, when it will be held in connection with Fan Expo 2015. We remain very committed to the SuperHero Ball concept and we intend to make the 2015 SuperHero Ball an incredible event experience for Fan Expo participants, guests, celebrities and sponsors. The SuperHero Ball will raise awareness and funds to benefit childhood cancer research, care and programs at SickKids Hospital.
Coast to Coast Against Cancer Foundation in partnership with Fan Expo Canada (TM) and SickKids Foundation, is launching the inaugural SuperHero Ball, Friday, August 29, 2014, at the Fairmont Royal York Hotel.
The SuperHero Ball is held in connection with Fan Expo, which draws over 120,000 people to the Metro Toronto Convention Centre in celebration of all things pop culture: comics, sci-fi, horror, anime, gaming, cosplay, and of course every SuperHero who ever saved the world.
