Last Friday, all things breasts took over the two floors of Andrew Richard Design’s stylish east-side Toronto studio for Booby Ball, the annual benefit supporting Rethink Breast Cancer. Flaunting their assets for an important cause, guests were decked out in prom-like brights, polka dots, poofs, and the like.

90210‘s Jessica Stroup and Toronto-native Shenae Grimes flew in for the 10th anniversary of the ball, a birthday party–themed bash with quite the appropriate party dress and fascinator ensembles for the festivities. They were seen heel-ing up the dance floor in between the arrival of a life-sized cake and live dance performance. (Yes, a Marilyn Monroe impersonator popped out of a cake). Complete with a bouncy castle, storm troopers, candy floss, and balloon animals, the event was fit for booby enthusiasts of all ages.

Calgarians get their chance to celebrate on November 9, when Booby Ball takes over Calgary’s The Bank.
