Blundstone’s Art to Boot, a fashion and visual arts fundraising celebration, will be held Thursday beginning at 7 p.m. at the Gladstone Hotel, 1214 Queen St. West.

Hosted by Blundstone Canada and Australian Boot Co., Art to Boot is the seventh annual fundraiser for SKETCH — a community arts initiative that creates opportunities for street-involved and homeless youth to engage in the arts.

The Art to Boot fundraising event includes a live auction for the top 10 pairs of Blundstone Boots as designed by the local artist and advertising community and selected by a panel of Toronto’s fashion and lifestyle media.

Notable mentions are boots by Terry O’Reilly of CBC’s Art of Persuasion, and Frank (Frankie Flowers) Ferragine of Citytv.

The event also features food and drink, live entertainment, the ever popular boot toss, and a silent auction of boots and other prizes.
