“The goal of Operanation is to showcase the versatility of opera…as a dynamic art form that continuously seeks to evolve both culturally and socially,” says Alexander Neef, General Director of the Canadian Opera Company (COC). “It shouldn’t just be listened to – it should be experienced.” This mandate clearly sets the stage for A Night of Curiosities, the theme for the COC’s 13th annual mega fundraiser. Held at the Four Seasons Performance center, three stories of the opera house welcomed…

Aptly named the MASSIVE Party, the Art Gallery Ontario’s annual fundraiser is regarded as one of the premiere events of the year. With Machine Age as this year’s guiding theme, the Massive Party explores our past, present, and future relationship with machines. Artists were invited to craft three distinct spaces throughout the AGO itself: Industrial, Digital and Space.

It’s no surprise that the Motionball Toronto Gala is one of our favorite Charity events in the city’s vibrant social scene. There’s a certain sense of grandeur and elegance that the organization has been able to consistently deliver year after year. Old Hollywood glamour was 2017’s theme and with the Historical Liberty Grand Entertainment Complex as the stage, flowing red carpets, and endless flowing libations, it’s difficult for attendees to not feel like a star.

I’ve long been a fan of Islay single-malt whiskeys for their complexity, which is often characterized by the distinct smoky aroma and lingering peaty notes unique to whiskies produced in this region of Scotland. So when Moet Hennessey and Ardbeg invited us to an exclusive 3 day #ARDVENTURE, it was clearly an offer that we could simply not refuse. Named after the small village located at the southern coast of Islay (pronounced “Eye-Lah”) where it has been distilled since the…
