For those who have wondered, ‘Whatever happened to ….,’ a Nostalgia Night to benefit nabs is being planned for those who were in advertising in the 1960s.

Organizers of the event, to be held Oct. 20 in Toronto, are Phil Foster, Ted Gittings and Ray Kundinger.

Phil Foster began his career with Ronalds Advertising in 1957 and is now operating his own consulting company, Anvil Communications.

Ray Kundinger started with an agency called Dancer Fitzgerald and now heads Kundinger Advertising.

Ted Gittings was on the media side of things in the ’60s as sales manager of Chatelaine and the first publisher of Homemaker’s magazine.

Three years ago, he started media rep house, Ted Gittings and Associates, and is still actively working for publications such as Canadian Treasurer.

Gittings says the purpose of Nostalgia Night is to get a group of at least 200 people together to have fun, reminisce about the good old days, and make some money for a good cause.

The committee would welcome contributions of anecdotes, photographs or campaigns from the ’60s.

Ross Smith, former president of Crombie Advertising, will be master of ceremonies.

Nostalgia Night will be held at the Delta Chelsea Inn, from 6-9 p.m.

Tickets are $30 per person and are available from the National Advertising Benevolent Society of Canada.
