The event of course had the privilege of getting one of Vancouver's more notable TV stars to host, Arrow's Stephen Amell. Like all the attendees who paid $40 U.S. (or $150 for VIP) Stephen wore his "Fuck Cancer" shirt that everyone was given and was told they had to wear to get in.
Amell played the part of host, and was very good at doing so. He started the night by greeting some fans as they lined up to get their photos taken on the small red carpet inside, he of course took 100s of autograph & photo with requests in stride throughout the night in 5 to 15 minute slots in between interactions with those who paid $150 to be in a VIP section with him. He even spoke quite briefly about the night & told the crowd the next song was a special one to him (I cant remember now the exact details he said on why it was, whether its when he met Cassandra, or proposed...but.... it was special to him) and immediately after introducing it, he got off the stage and down onto the dance floor with his wife, and the pair danced to the song with dozens of partiers circling the pair.
Below is a video of the pairs dancing to the song "Come On Eileen" from Dexys Midnight Runners..
