Hosted by Etalk Senior Reporter Devon Soltendieck and Etalk Reporter and Much Host Liz Trinnear, the must-attend event features notable special guests and an outstanding lineup of theatre elites, who will celebrate the music that Alison loved – Broadway standards, as well as some contemporary hits. At 9:30 pm, From Broadway With Love welcomes the über popular DJ Skratch Bastid for the TEALPOWER After Party.

About Alison Salinas and TEALPOWER
Alison was diagnosed with cervical cancer in 2013 at age 32. Ever the fighter, sitting idly by while going through treatment was not an option for Alison. The lack of information about cervical cancer inspired Alison to chronicle her journey on her Tealpower Canuck blog, which spread quickly through social media. She coined the name TEALPOWER as teal and white are the colours of cervical cancer awareness. Alison was continuing her mission to raise awareness about the disease when she sadly lost her battle in November, 2015. TEALPOWER is now an organization, co-founded by Alison's partner, Tyler Puley, which continues Alison's fight for cervical cancer education and a cure. TEALPOWER places an increased emphasis on raising funds for cervical cancer research through #Team TEALPOWER, Alison's team in the Princess Margaret Cancer Centre's annual cycling fundraiser, Ride To Conquer Cancer.
