Festival Countdown 2016: A Recap

Posted on

On Wednesday August 24th, President of NKPR, Natasha Koifman opened her doors to entertainment industry influencers, tastemakers and media for her agency’s annual Film Festival Countdown party. In partnership with MEC, Canada’s go-to place for outdoor gear, know-how and inspiration, the scene was primed beautifully for guests to enjoy good times outside. Guests chatted amongst an illuminated high-performance bicycle installation, while braver guests posed for selfies in the pool with MEC’s 17ft canoe! As always, the poolside venue was looking its best thanks to Caspar Haydar.

Kicking off Toronto’s film festival season, the annual event also featured a preview of NYC-based artist Peter Tunney’s upcoming charitable exhibit that will be hosted at the NKPR IT House during the festival. 50% of the sales of Tunney’s work will be donated to Artists for Peace and JusticeTunney’s “Don’t Panic” piece set the backdrop for Philadelphia Flyers defenceman, Mike del Zotto, who was the event’s DJ for the evening.

Guests indulged in savoury bites from partners including Emma’s Eatery, Panago Pizza, McDonald’s and a sweet table from Cakes by Mickey. To toast, guests sipped on Apothic Wines, enjoyed bubbles and popcorn from Henkell, beer from Muskoka Breweries and stayed hydrated with Flow WaterPage Activations captured guests in action as they fete the pre-festival celebrations.

Introducing… Kandy with a K!

Posted on

What could be better than eating candy… for a cause?

When planning our 10th anniversary initiatives, we knew we wanted to include something fun and unique that gives us the opportunity to give back. An integral part of our mandate, NKPR has championed cause-related  initiatives that have helped  to raise 10 million dollars for various charities and organizations since day one. Now at year 10, we wanted to create a fun and sweet way to give back!

Combine our passion for social responsibility with an office sweet tooth, countless event candy bars and the concept for Kandy with a K was born!

Kandy with a K is a cause-driven candy store offering an assortment of nostalgic candies. Think Popeye Candy Sticks, FIZZ, Tootsie Roll Pops, Gumballs and Pop Rocks! Are we bringing back childhood memories yet?

Starting May 14, Canadians can purchase an assortment of ‘kandy’ in the amounts of $25, $50, $75 or higher in support of 10 Canadian charities that hold a special place for NKPR and our clients – Camp Oochigeas, Musicounts, Paws for the Cause, Artists for Peace and Justice, Partners for Mental Health, Big Brothers Big Sisters, Boys and Girls Clubs of Canada, Girls on the Run and Can Fund!

We have already placed our first order! After all, how could we have an unlimited supply of candy in the office without indulging a bit ourselves?

Now we need your support!  Please visit kandywithak.com for a sweet way to give back!  The Kandy with a K bar will also be set up in the NKPR office so come visit us at 312 Adelaide St. W. to pick up your candy in person!

NKPR is incredibly excited to be celebrating our 10th Anniversary this year! Check out NKPR’s timeline, a look back at our 10 years in business!
