Red Carpet Gala
September 22 - 24
Two nights of immersed luxury and deepened connection.
A culmination of the nine exquisite months we’ll have cherished together.
A gift you’ll never forget having given yourself.
The very best of me. The very best of my city. In September! (My favourite time of year.)
The guestrooms have recently been renovated, combining sophistication with modern amenities. It truly redefines luxury. Accommodations in this iconic hotel feature the finest in furnishings, custom bedding and vintage crown moldings, all with impeccably appointed marble bathrooms perfecting every aspect of the experience.
Choose between a private room with a King bed or a double room you share with a sister. First come, first served.
You’ll get your sweet, Star-Stepping self checked into the legendary Omni King Edward Hotel in the heart of downtown Toronto anytime between 3pm – 5pm. Those in the know call it the King Eddy...but we’ll rename it the Queen Eddy for the weekend. This is where you’ll stay for two nights.
Stunning architecture. Rich history (Louis Armstrong! Mark Twain! The Beatles! Elvis Presley! Rudolph Valentino! Ernest Hemingway! Elizabeth Taylor! You!)
Mandi will be waiting for you upon check-in. Up next, chill, meet your sisters, have a soak in the tub, head to the cocktail lounge, maybe all of the above!
Cars pick you up at 7:00pm and whisk you to a secret special spot. I’ll meet you there. And I can’t wait! We’ll canoodle, catch up and bask in each other’s wisdom, experiences, stories, hopes, and dreams.
After a night of sweet sleep you’re invited to Saturday morning brunch and then a 60-minute massage (OR delay this decadent treatment for the spa of your choice back home if you prefer to lounge in your room or see some of the sights.)
By early afternoon it’ll be time to get your hair and makeup done by our team in preparation for the night ahead! (We’ll gather together for this experience - champagne, light snacks, more great conversation. There can’t possibly be enough of this, can there?)
You’ll get dressed in your best Stepping into Your Starring Role outfit (the one you’ve been trying on again and again) and be ready to shine by 6:00pm when cars arrive to escort us all to the Saturday evening Gala.
I can’t tell you all the surprises that await, but...think photographers and some special guests. It’s a beautiful evening designed to celebrate your brilliant light. Easy. Stunning. Amazing. Dinner and celebration in style.
Check out is by 11 am so we’ll be saying our farewells over breakfast. But no need to say goodbye to Toronto! Stay a couple of days. We’ll make sure you’ve got a fabulous list of must-sees!
Get yourself to Toronto! Check into the Queen Eddy anytime between 3pm – 5pm. Flop onto your luxurious bed, enjoy a bubble bath, and get settled in. You will be whisked away for cocktails and appetizers at 7pm.
Brunch, massage, or see the sights of Toronto. Then come back to the hotel. We'll get our hair and makeup done, and get red carpet ready, then the cars will come fetch us to go get our gala on! And yes...there will be a stage for you to take your bow.
Our final sumptuous meal together will be breakfast then we'll say our fond farewells in closing.
The only detail you need to manage is getting yourself to the Omni King Edward Hotel. We’ll take it - and take care of you - from there! (We will even make arrangements to get you back to the airport on the 24th if that’s your day of departure.)
Payment plan: Once you’ve made your deposit of $497, you can make one payment of $2000 or four payments of $525 spread out over the next four months with your final payment due before September 15, 2017.
If you prefer to share a room, your investment will be $2197 CDN ($2697 MINUS your $500 Academy discount) Once you’ve made your deposit of $497, you can make one payment of $1700 or four payments of $450 spread out over the next four months with your final payment due before September 15, 2017.
We’ve only got fifteen spots in all, so grab yours now.
All of your retreat payments — including your initial deposit — are non-refundable.
Why? Some of it’s purely logistical (we’re getting special rates from the hotel who require non-refundable deposits and so on and so forth) but moreso, we all know how easy it can be to second-guess your instincts and say, “Oh, no, I don’t reeeeally need to go” or “Life is just so busy!” or “Changed my mind!”
A hard and fast refund policy ensures whoever’s in is IN. And we know we can count on you.
Saying YES to an experience and then fully showing up? That’s where the magic is at.
(Well...that and in September in Toronto.)
BY ALL MEANS, ASK US ANY Q’S. We are totally and completely here for you.
