Smashfest is a charity fundraiser in which those in attendance mix and mingle with NHL stars and other celebrities at a ping pong themed party in downtown Toronto. Last year's event featured Steven Stamkos, Jason Spezza, Vincent Lecavalier, Eric Lindros, and many others. The evening includes full open bar and food, and donations support concussion research and the Katie Moore foundation for rare cancers.
Steam Whistle Brewing is home to two unique event spaces that can accommodate groups of 30 to 750. Our onsite events team will ensure that all of the details of your function are taken care of to your satisfaction. The historic Roundhouse is an architectural gem with large multi-paned windows, 30-foot ceilings, hand-hewn support pillars and exposed red brick. Steam Whistle's renovation has kept much of its originality in place. The atmosphere is inviting and very social. Truly an extraordinary venue for your event!
Smashfest was created to raise money for two important causes: concussions and cancer.
Still not well understood, concussions and traumatic brain injuries (TBI) often leave those who sustain them with crippling symptoms - physical, mental and emotional. These debilitating conditions are not just temporary but often lifelong handicaps that people live with every day - from youth, amateur and professional athletes to the men and women that serve us in uniform.
Following a tough battle with a rare liver cancer, Dominic Moore’s wife Katie passed away at the age of 32 in January. After her passing, Dominic set in motion plans to create a foundation that would bring research and advocacy to patients and families dealing with less common cancers, which don't get nearly the attention or funding they deserve. While still in its infancy, the Katie Moore Foundation is already involved with impactful research and advocacy plans.
