On the evening of Saturday, Oct 25th, the Heart of Fashion charity gala was one last bang to end this season’s Fashion Week. Taking place at the Town Square at Shops at Don Mills, premium designers and brands were showcased on the runway in a large heated tent.
It was a whirlwind of fabulous designers including Christopher Bates, Fotini Copeland, David Dixon, Madame Moje and even brands such as Banana Republic and Salomon.
The event raised a whopping $750,000 for the future of breast cancer care through the North York General Hospital Foundation.
Proceeds help make North York General Hospital the first hospital in the GTA to offer a minimally invasive procedure called seed localization, to help surgeons pinpoint and remove early-stage breast cancers with the best possible accuracy. These are tumours that can be seen on a mammogram, but are too small to identify during a physical exam. This leading-edge technology will help to ensure that patients receive the most accurate surgical care, which will promote positive long-term health outcomes. To learn more click here.
