I Heart Neighbourhood Charity Auction
UrbanArts has teamed up with 4 other organizations to host a fundraising event to support all 5 organizations and we need your support!
Last year, the first-ever I Heart Neighbourhood Charity Auction, hosted by Alison Smith, raised over $120,000 for the benefit of five vital community organizations. We are pleased to announce that this unique collaborative fundraiser will be held again in 2019 at an exciting new venue that offers the opportunity to engage even more community supporters.
On Wednesday, May 15, 2019, the second annual I Heart Neighbourhood CharityAuction will see up to 750 community members and caring companies come together at Ryerson’s Mattamy Athletic Centre (the former Maple Leaf Gardens) to celebrate and support the importance of strong, vibrant, and compassionate neighbourhoods in our great city. The charities that will benefit from this event will be The Neighbourhood Group, Bellwoods Centres for Community Living Inc., Business in the Streets, Regent Park Focus Youth Media Centre and UrbanArts. Collectively, our agencies serve 50,000 Torontonians each year.
Building on the success of last year’s debut, the I Heart Neighbourhood Charity Auction will bring together friends, neighbours and supporters of a wide spectrum of caring and compassionate community organizations to celebrate the importance of neighbourhood. This unique collaborative fundraising will help UrbanArts to raise much-needed funds to support vital programs and services. Attendees will enjoy an elegant evening mixing delicious fare and beverages with both a silent and live auction, live entertainment, and the opportunity to learn about the work of five local charities.
