Chris Boshâ€™s 25th birthday gala gets JUZD
The day couldnâ€™t have gone any better with a Raptor win over the LA Clippers, undoubtedly an early birthday present for Chris and his teammates. The adrenaline level was sky high and the team made a special effort to look and smell good for the highly anticipated festivities that the night would bring.
Liberty Street had never felt so alive on a Sunday night; the street was filled with high energy and people, who braved the frigid cold, on a day where usually the street is calm and quiet. The storm was just about to come. Chrisâ€™s friends and family were riled up to celebrate Chris Bosh‘s 25th exclusive birthday gala at Maro nightclub on Sunday March 22, 2009.
The red carpet was rolled out with style and the crowd was decked out to the nines. People were definitely ready to get JUZD. Lots of people ran out to buy the exclusive, hand made, one-of-a-kind BIG 25 JUZD, hand crafted by Jing Liu. The shirts were sold before the event and those who purchased beforehand, took advantage of the VIP treatment in the club. The BIG 25 shirts were also selling at Maro as a souvenir commemorating a new milestone in Chrisâ€™ life.
Hundreds of Boshâ€™s closest friends including Jay Triano, teammates: Shawn Marion, Anthony Parker, Jose Calderon, Jason Kapono, Andrea Bargnani, Kris Humphries, Roko Ukic and Joey Graham were among some of the Raptors in attendance. Hallie Dixon, Trex and Devo Brown were also anticipating Chrisâ€™ arrival. The paparazzi were ready with their extra large SD cards and as soon as Chris rolled up to the club, the flashing lights from hundreds of cameras started. 4Korners welcomed him with 50 centâ€™s â€œIn Da Clubâ€ and the crowd sang â€œGo Shawty, itâ€™s your birthday.” Shawty was quite the irony standing tall at 6â€™10!
It only took minutes for the friends and family in the VIP section to start popping bottles to help celebrate Chrisâ€™s 25th.
The party went on until the wee hours but who would turn down celebrating in style with Chris for his quarter century milestone? Hereâ€™s to brilliant year Chris, all the best from your closest family and friends in Toronto!
