From lip-sync battles to bizarre art shows

Lip Sync Battle
At a fundraiser held at Babylon Nightclub Nov 13, costumed competitors were judged on their lip-synching abilities and overall performances. China Doll did double duty as both judge and performer to help raise money for the Ontario Lung Association.

Idle Hands
At the Idle Hands sale on Nov 23, independent businesses, artists and crafters sold art, clothing, décor, edibles and more. The event was organized by Antique Skate Shop to raise funds for the McNabb outdoor skate park.

Closet Collective
The Closet Collective was held Nov 21 as a fundraiser for the Ottawa School of Art, Dress for Success and St Joe’s Women’s Centre. A number of fashionable bloggers, entrepreneurs, stylists and socialites were each presented with a bag ahead of time to fill with donated clothing.
