From Nakedespy 2019 to Vino Value, here’s what’s up this weekend in YYC.
1. Nakedespy 2019 & the NakedtoDressed After Party
March 30th from 3pm-9pm
espy, 1009 9 Ave SE
After espy owner, Megan Szanik’s dad was diagnosed with prostate cancer, she began to wonder what she could do to raise awareness for others affected by a cancer diagnosis in the community. That’s when nakedespy was born. This fun one-day event started in 2010 and is a day guys spend parading around Inglewood in their underwear to raise money and awareness about men’s health for Calgary’s Prostate Cancer Centre. As a reward for their fundraising efforts, they’ll receive over $1,000 of clothes as a gift from espy. Come watch the spectacle go down as the guys go from #nakedtodressed.
