Bare All for the Barre presented by RBC Dominion Securities

For the third year Bare All for the Barre is challenging men to step outside their comfort zones.
On Sunday September 25th, 2016, will you bare it all?
Men often don’t talk about their health, and Bare All for the Barre wants to change that. Barre is a worldwide fitness phenomenon that has its basis in ballet, Pilates, yoga and strength conditioning. 
Don’t let the name fool you. At Bare All for the Barre your clothes stay on. 
In 2015, the Halifax Farmer’s Seaport Market hosted an intense workout, live music, gourmet food and fun in support of Prostate Cancer Canada Atlantic Region.

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 $3000
