Todd Talbot of Love it or List it Vancouver will host the exclusive ‘THE FAST, THE FURIOUS AND THE FASHIONABLE’ Special Fund Raising Event for Covenant House on Friday, November 4th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm in conjunction with Strellson, OpenRoad, Fairmont Vancouver Airport, Trading Post Brewing

Todd will join other celebrities and business leaders by sleeping out and raising money for Covenant House on November 17th in Vancouver 

screen-shot-2016-10-26-at-7-46-01-am

Todd Talbot of Love It or List It Vancouver is so moved by the work that Covenant House is doing to bring attention and compassion to kids sleeping on the streets of Vancouver that he will be joining other celebrities and business leaders by sleeping outside for one night in solidarity on November 17th, 2016.

To raise money for Covenant House Todd has created a special fund raising event ‘THE FAST, THE FURIOUS AND THE FASHIONABLE’ by inviting 50 gentlemen to join him for a night of style, fine cars, high-end scotch tasting and food at Strellson Vancouver located at 1108 Alberni Street on November 4th from 7:00 – 10:00 pm.  In conjunction with OpenRoad, Fairmont Vancouver Airport and Strellson, this exclusive party will be raising money and awareness for Covenant House.

Upon arrival the gentlemen will be given a choice to get behind the wheel of a Rolls-Royce, a super slick orange BMW i8 or a jet black Audi R8. They will then enter into the exclusive Strellson store located on Alberni St. at the base of the luxurious Thurlow Tower.  Inside, there’ll be a ton of special surprises, guests will receive style tips from Strellson’s fashion director David Altow, shop and enjoy 30% savings, plus partake in tasting samplings served by Fairmont Vancouver Airport chef Colin Burslem. They will also get to sip high end scotch and Trading Post Beer. This is the second annual event and Todd’s goal is to raise a whack of money for Covenant House prior to the ‘Sleep Out’ on November 17th.

Tickets are limited and cost $250. A full tax receipt from Covenant House will be provided. Todd encourages everyone to consider adding a few extra bucks for this amazing organization.

“I am inspired to raise as much money and awareness as possible for Covenant House. Having friends and family who have struggled with addiction, mental illness, and being on the streets, I know they need a last line of defence and the resources to stay safe. Covenant House delivers support that is desperately needed,” says Talbot. “I am so fortunate and admittedly lucky to be in the position I’m in. As a father of two, I am aware that there are no promises when it comes to my children’s future. I see these young adults who could be my kids. Imagining them struggling and lost, breaks my heart. I know that a safe haven is essential. Protection, warmth, and a supportive environment is a necessity for all of us. We have an opportunity to provide that for youth who can’t provide for themselves at the moment.”

The SLEEP OUT is on November 17th and Covenant House is challenging local executives, community luminaries and notables to Sleep Out for one night in solidarity with the youth we serve at Covenant House. With only a sleeping bag and a piece of cardboard, participants will get a small glimpse of what it’s like to “sleep” on the street.

Covenant Houses throughout the United States and Canada will host Sleep Out events this fall to raise critical funds and awareness about the issue of youth homelessness. We hope you consider joining the movement. Many youth who have nowhere else to turn spend many cold and lonely nights sleeping on the streets.

Covenant House’s Crisis Program takes in homeless, runaway and at-risk youth between the ages of 16 and 24. 

Homeless, lost and afraid, more than 1,500 street–involved youth come to Covenant House Vancouver each year to find sanctuary and a brighter future. Cold, hungry and alone, the reality of sleeping on the streets is harsh and unforgiving. Many of the youth who make their way through our doors have had to endure cruel life circumstances on the pitiless streets before they finally find hope here at Covenant House Vancouver. We welcome them unconditionally, helping them begin their journey to leave life on the streets behind them for good.

Todd Talbot is available for interviews upon request.

The popular TV series, which also airs on HGTV as Love It or List It Too in the USA, showcases families who are struggling with homes that no longer suit their needs. Whether they’ve outgrown the home they once loved or the lustre has worn off, homeowners are faced with the dilemma of whether they should stay or go?

A veteran theatre artist for more than two decades, Todd has starred in dozens of award-winning productions. With Love It or List It Vancouver, Todd returns to the small screen where he first made his start, as a teenager, on the hit Nickelodeon TV series Fifteen. His award-winning acting career has spanned more than twenty years and included theatrical training in London and TV appearances on series such as Smallville, Outer Limits, Young Blades, Dark Angel, Night Visions and Taken.

IMG_0070-Edit(1)Todd has just re-launched his website www.ToddTalbot.ca the home to Todd’s personal life on and off camera as an opportunity to share media exposure, upcoming events, and TV shows as well as his family life, fatherhood and fashion.

Todd’s professional life has never been busier. Todd travels between the U.S. and Canada speaking at, and emceeing a wide variety of events. Todd has also been a guest judge on Game of Homes and voiced the show Who Lives Here, both for W Network.

Todd is the new West Coast Editor of HOSS magazine, as well as a regular contributor to atHOME Victoria. Todd is a favorite guest on talk shows and a spokesperson for the BC Millionaire Home Lottery.

He has also created and operated several real estate companies in marketing, design, and staging including Condoguys Marketing, myRealDESIGN and is a new member of the Blu Realty family.

Todd has many views to share. Smart, educated, well planned investing and the guts to take the risk are what it requires to get into the game of Real Estate. Todd believes that the keys to being a successful investor are really simple: Hard work, Education, Action, REPEAT.

Not to be overshadowed, Todd’s young family is always close by. He loves to share his adventures of fatherhood, fighting the dad-bod, staying fashionable, travel, sports, and the coveted date night with his wife actress Rebecca. Todd is the proud father of two – Ashlyn (6) and Kesler (4).

Bringing a dose of comedy to everything he does, Todd believes that the only way to be truly happy in life is to find something that you are passionate about and then figure out some way to make money at it! Serendipitously it came together when both acting and real estate allowed Todd to do just that!
