Sea to Sky Gala
An amazing night on top of a mountain to benefit an extraordinary charity.
Master of Ceremonies | Joe Eppele
We are very excited to announce our 2018 Sea to Sky Gala MC, Joe Eppele.
Joe was born (1987) and raised in Squamish. A former Canadian Football League (CFL) offensive lineman, he was drafted second overall by the Toronto Argonauts in the 2010 CFL Draft, being the first offensive lineman taken while being ranked fifth overall by the CFL’s Amateur Scouting Bureau. Joe is a 5 year CFL veteran and was an active starter for the Toronto Argonauts during the 100th Grey Cup championship win in 2012.
Growing up in Squamish, Joe was hardwired for fitness and adventure. Passionate about living healthy: mind, body and soul; Joe is an advocate for all ages to live and feel their best.
He is a celebrity spokesperson and ambassador for children, animal welfare, health and human rights. He has been the celebrity spokesperson for the Kids Help Phone, World Wildlife Fund, and worked closely with numerous other charitable organizations across Canada.
Joe received his Bachelor of Science (BSc), majoring in Psychology from Washington State University and his Master of Business Administration (MBA) from DeGroote School of Business (McMaster University).
We look forward to his larger than life presence and warm demeanor as our MC for the 2018 Sea to Sky Gala!
