As we know, this season of The Hour is slowly winding down. If you want to catch a taping (in Toronto or during a special visit to Vancouver), it is not too late. Visit the The Hour's website to reserve your free tickets!

If you are in the Toronto area toward the end of May AND have lots of spare money, you may be interested in checking out a fundraiser in which George will be participating. The White Knight Gala is an annual event put on by the Ron White Foundation, to raise both awareness and funds for a partnering charity. During the Gala, George will be assisting in a live auction. I love the name of this event as it conveys various meanings, depending upon how you read it. While Ron White is the founder, the name also implies the traditional concept of the helping white know the dude on a horse who helps someone in distress. And then there is the dress code for the event: "All White Summer Cocktail Attire and your most fabulous, colourful or outrageous shoes to model on the White Carpet". George in all white? REALLY?

If you can't pony up the cost required to physically attend the event, you can always make an online donation.
