Now that the winter weather is gone it’s time to come out of hibernation. Here’s the top upcoming events this spring in Toronto including the best charity galas, special events, launch parties and exclusive dinner experiences across a variety of industries.

Guests are brought to meet-up points and made aware of the venue at the last hour. It was in a parking lot at Queen Street just east of Church Street.
