The 4th Annual DanceAble Goes Virtual

The 4th annual DanceAble goes Virtual

INK Cares along with its partners at Variety Ontario and Substance Cares are excited to host the fourth edition of the all-inclusive dance party, DanceAble. Hosted by Z103.5’s Tony Monaco and with DJ sets in Rebel Nightclub, members from the disabled community can virtually access the dance party from home on June 23rd, 2020 from 6:00pm to 7:30pm.

Launched in 2017, DanceAble is about bringing families, businesses, and the greater local community together to create a world that is inclusive and accessible, and where people with disabilities are recognized and appreciated. With more than 500 guests and community members at last year’s dance party at Cabana Pool Bar, it was important to host the event while Toronto continues to isolate.

Mr. Brainwash Limited Edition Prints in support of Street Haven

Art has the ability to bring joy in the most challenging times.

As the world continues the fight against COVID-19, it is more important than ever to look for the positives and to give back when possible. INK Entertainment’s Taglialatella Galleries is thrilled to be partnering with legendary pop-artist, Mr. Brainwash, on a limited edition We Love Canada print.

Available for purchase as of today, 10 per cent of the signed prints’ sales will be donated to Street Haven, a local organization supporting women experiencing, or at risk of homelessness.

   

As the Canadian outpost of the Taglialatella brand, Taglialatella Galleries New York launched an Art for Relief campaign in March to share positive imagery and support local charities during this time. Featuring internationally renowned artists like Mr. Brainwash, Burton Morris, and Russell Young, the Art for Relief campaign has raised nearly $20,000 USD.  

 

 

INK Cares supporting our front line workers

We extend our thanks to the frontline workers for all they have done during the COVID-19 pandemic. More than anyone could have imagined, their lives have been turned upside down as they put their health at risk to help us. As part of an INK Cares initiative and to express our sincere gratitude, each week our kitchen staff at the Bisha Hotel are preparing a selection of sweet and savoury food donations for the incredible teams at Toronto hospitals. While remaining inside is the greatest way to support healthcare workers and at-risk individuals, we hope to provide a moment of relief and offer this as a token of our appreciation during these trying times. We can’t thank you enough.

 

 

Do you know a heroic team of frontline workers helping combat COVID-19? Email us at pr@inkentertainment.com to request a complimentary food donation. We will do our best to accommodate all inquiries.
 
 
 

Bisha Hotel celebrates 2nd Anniversary with Back 2 Bisha initiative

On November 27, 2017, Bisha Hotel & Residences burst on to the scene with a spectacular grand opening party for more than 1,000 guests. Now, two years later, the luxury hotel has succeeded in establishing its place as a creative hub in the heart of Toronto’s vibrant Entertainment District.

Recognized by Condé Nast Traveller as one of Toronto’s top hotels, Bisha is celebrating its two-year anniversary by offering special packages designed around the number ‘two’. On behalf of all guests, Bisha will also be giving back to the community. For every night’s stay in November, the hotel will make a donation to The Remix Project, a local arts-organization that helps young people in marginalized and under-served communities. With more than 3,000 pieces on display, art is a key pillar of the hotel.

Bisha Hotel Toronto was founded by visionary impresario Charles Khabouth, who was recognized as one of the ‘coolest boutique hotel owners in the world’ by Forbes Magazine. Since opening the hotel two years ago, Bisha has garnered numerous international accolades, been featured in glossy magazines, and hosted celebrities from the worlds of film, music, and sports.

“This is my first hotel project and we had a very specific vision of the role we wanted to play in the city,” says Charles Khabouth. “We felt there was opportunity for a hotel that is both luxurious and sexy, with a focus on art, design, and innovative dining concepts. To watch Bisha come to life and be so successful, in such a short time, is extremely gratifying.”

In addition to giving back to The Remix Project, the hotel will celebrate its second anniversary with a series of initiatives including:

ANNIVERSARY PACKAGE: Guests can take advantage of the ‘Back 2 Bisha’ anniversary offers this month. Package includes an overnight stay in one of the hotel’s luxurious rooms and breakfast for two at KŌST, the stunning Baja-inspired rooftop restaurant with one of the ‘dreamiest swimming pools in the world’, as recognized by Matador Network.

SOCIAL MEDIA CONTEST: The hotel is encouraging fans to share a favoured photo taken at the hotel using the hashtag #Back2Bisha for a chance to win an overnight stay and breakfast for two.

LIMITED EDITION MENUS: At the highly acclaimed Akira Back, fans will delight in a special limited edition anniversary menu that features new items including ribeye tacos and poached lobster from Michelin Star Chef Akira Back. At French Made, the hotel’s Parisian-inspired café, signature Birthday Cake slices will be available throughout the month.
