The BFF is a foundation started by HGTV star Brian Baeumler and his wife Sarah. The charity strives to make the lives of disabled children better by funding renovations to make their homes more accessible. As many people know, Mike Holmes and Brian Baeumler are good friends and fellow Canadians, and if one of them is throwing a shindig chances are the other is going to show up. True enough, Mike and his best girl Anna (Zappia) arrived, dressed to the nines. For more information about the Baeumler Family Foundation, visit their official website.
