World's Best Event Planners

Departures — By Mark Ellwood

It’s in Jennifer Bassett’s (blue) blood to be a consummate hostess. Daughter of Douglas Bassett and granddaughter of Baton Broadcasting founder John Bassett, she is as much a partygoer as a thrower. In the last decade, Jennifer built her business largely by word of mouth.

She masterminded a celebration for music poo-bah David Foster at a private estate in Toronto with 400 of his closest friends, transforming an athletic complex into an upscale dining room and concert venue where Lionel Richie and Peter Cetera serenaded the throng.

Joie, meet vivre. Blond, blue-eyed and born with a pedigree that is as heritage as the city probably gets, this dah-ling is as comfortable on the social circuit as she is overseeing things in her role as party architect (Bassett Events is one of the go-tos in the city!).
