Serge Ibaka Will Be Making An Appearance In Toronto Next Week

Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article stated that Serge Ibaka would be signing autographs on August 2. A representative has clarified that Ibaka is not confirmed for August 2, but will be in attendance on August 1. 

If you’re still buzzing from the Raptors’ big championship win, you’ll be happy to hear that there’s a special opportunity to meet one of the NBA champions this summer.

NBA Champion and Toronto Raptor, Serge Ibaka, will be making a special appearance in Toronto on August 1, 2019.

While many players are taking much-deserved vacations after the historic Toronto Raptors Championship win, Ibaka is taking the time to give back to the community and the place he calls home. Not only will he be cooking up a storm for Charity at Square One Night Market on July 26, but Ibaka will soon be headed to Yorkville for an equally noble cause.

The stylish basketball player recently put his design skills to the test for a partnership with Toronto startup, Topik Wear, to create his own line of men’s underwear, which will be launching on Thursday, August 1, 2019.

But the Topik Wear collaboration isn’t just any ol’ designer collection!

For each boxer brief sold, a portion of the sales will go towards benefitting the children of the The Serge Ibaka Foundation, which focuses on the bettering the health and education of children in the Congo, Toronto, and across the globe.

The launch will kick off with a 19+ launch party event on August 1st, and of course, Ibaka will be in attendance to talk about the foundation and his collection with Topik Wear, aptly named The Champion Set.

The Champion Set comes with three styles of underwear: Abec Class, Mafuzzy, and The Serge, and are each made for everyday wear.

The 19+ party on Thursday, August 1 is a ticketed event, so if you’d like to party with Ibaka, be sure to purchase your ticket online.
