Past Events

Bare All for the Barre

On September 25, 2016, 100 men and women stepped outside of their comfort zone and tried a new fitness activity for a good cause.

This event was for everyone - young, old and in all shapes and sizes.

Participants were lead through a fast and fun workout to music spun by a live DJ. Refreshments and a reception followed for all - family and friends included!

Stanfield's Pants Off for Prostate Cancer

This year’s Stanfield’s Pants Off for Prostate Cancer in Halifax was billed as a night of #GoodCleanFun at the laundromat - and it didn’t disappoint. More than $65,000 was raised in support of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic.

We couldn’t have done it without the commitment of our generous Co-Chairs Jon Stanfield and Dennis Campbell who, along with the volunteer committee, continue to ensure that this event goes off in style and with plenty of community support. 

The evening started with the Patterson Law Briefing Ceremony where guests pledged to do their part to promote awareness of Prostate Cancer and to keep their pants on – “but just not tonight.”
Murphy’s Cable Wharf offered spectacular views of the sunset on Halifax harbour.  That magnificent scene was paired with a mouth-watering menu of East Coast inspired treats like lobster poutine, and donair-wrapped scallops.

For the third consecutive year, Party Boots did not disappoint in getting everyone moving and shaking on the dance floor.

The evening was highlighted by the Take It Outside Balloon Blitz and a Live auction.  Our friends at Frigidaire provided us with 5 brand new washers and dryers that were incorporated into the laundromat theme, and then auctioned off.  Special thanks also to the Air Canada Foundation for the generous travel package and all the other sponsors.

It was a great night for a great cause.  We look forward to doing it again in 2017.

Salt Water Mixer

On September 29, 2015, the Maritimes Energy Association hosted the inaugural Salt Water Mixer in support of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic Region.

The highlight of the night was the Dunk Tank Challenge where guests bid on which member of the Energy Industry Executive Dunk Panel would take the plunge! PCC Atlantic Executive Director, Peter Mallette was also dunked that night.

The night began with a tour of the Halifax Harbour on the Harbour Queen featuring drinks and hors d'oeuvres. Following the boat tour, guests enjoyed some Nova Scotian lobster and great local entertainment at Murphy's on the Water.

The Salt Water Mixer capped off the first day of the Core Energy Conference and was an ideal opportunity to network with other conference delegates and key energy industry stakeholders.

The Salt Water Mixer raised over $3,000.
