With the holiday doldrums behind us, Toronto is once again ready to break out its dancing shoes in support of a good cause… or several good causes. The following are a few fundraisers and galas coming up in January and early February.
Design Exchange’s ‘This Is Not A Toy’ Exhibition Opening, featuring Pharrell.
On Febuary 6th, The DX launches the world’s first ever large-scale exhibition dedicated to designer toys as contemporary art. Visitors will dive headfirst into a surreal realm of art “toys” as the Exhibition Hall is transformed into a life-size dream world, filled with figures ranging from tiny trinkets to enormous free-standing pieces. Guest curated by American music and fashion icon, Pharrell Williams.

Ad Ball ’14 – ‘Galaxy Gala’
The crown jewel of Advertising & Marketing Week, Ad Ball is the perfect place to rub shoulders with the modern ‘Mad Men’ crowd. This year the Ad Ball takes on a whole new personality with a ‘galaxy’ theme, filled with glitz, glam, and a “shiny cybernetic romp.”

An annual must-attend dinner and cocktail for Toronto’s movers and shakers. LES OISEAUX DU PARADIS will be providing the entertainment and former Rogers CEO Nadir Mohamed will make a keynote presentation.
