By now, you’ve likely heard tales of “the Suitcase Party“, a seemingly elusive night for Toronto’s brightest young professionals. Or — if you haven’t yet — just wait. It’s coming. And, don’t worry. I’m here to fill you in on all the juicy details.
1. So, what is this “Suitcase Party”?
Launched through the Children’s Aid Foundation, the first ever Suitcase Party will bring together Toronto’s up-and-coming young professionals who are on track to becoming tomorrow’s leaders. From media and marketing to the city’s legal and financial communities, these 20 and 30-somethings mean business, and what better reason to unite these great minds than for a networking opportunity in support of an equally great cause? Also, getting to that “Suitcase” part, guests will have the opportunity to win one of three amazing destination packages to New York City, Miami, or Las Vegas (courtesy of Air Canada). And, let’s talk about the drinks and entertainment: an exclusive Manhattan bar and two tequila tasters, the Blue Hour in Bali and Blue Hour in Ireland, featuring fresh, raw juices and espresso and sponge toffee crumble, respectively. Which brings me to my next point…
2. Who’s invited?
Here’s the thing: this is an invite-only event. But that doesn’t mean you can’t come… it just means you have to be invited by one of the Suitcase Party’s committee members or sponsors. Click here for a full listing, and don’t worry — they won’t bite.
3. When and where is it?
Wednesday, February 11 at The Citizen (522 King Street W). Cocktail attire is in effect; dress to impress.
4.Who does this support?
The Children’s Aid Foundation supports Canada’s most abused and neglected kids through funding for innovative programs. With programs that support a range of areas like education, prevention, and healing and recovery, the Foundation helps children in the child welfare system build hope and belief in their futures.
‘Til next time. #whatsthestorey #suitcasepartyto
