Toronto LifeMagazine 50th Anniversary@Casa Loma(Thurs.,Oct.20th,2016)
We were privileged to attend the exclusive, invite-only gala which was held at the beautiful Casa Loma on Thursday, with Toronto Life celebrating its 50th anniversary and a special November issue. It was a lavish event and it showcased the best in red-carpet style to celebrate 50 years of publishing “what to do+what’s happening in Toronto ! ”
The event brought out the who’s who such as : John Macfarlane, Devon Soltendiek, Glen Baxter, Michelle Dube, Andrea Bain, Shawn Hewson, Ruth Promislow, and John Tory
It was an amazing menu from The Liberty Entertainment Group which also included scotch from Glenlivet , wines from Robert Mondavi Winery and Stratus Vineyards, signature cocktails featuring Roberto Cavalli Vodka, and beer by Amsterdam Brewing Co
The evening included the Mizrahi Developments champagne room, featuring Veuve Clicquot and a sparkling champagne tower. The Tequila Tromba bar, where guests could taste the special Toronto 50 Cocktail. The spectacular digitally-projected fireworks in the main hallway were stunning !
The evening had a special performance by Canadian singer-songwriter Basia Bulat. Guests were treated to non-stop music and danced the rest of the night away during a set by DJX.
Portland Variety and Le Gourmand provided desserts and there was a custom 50th-anniversary seven-tier cake from Le Dolci Toronto. Also the amazing “Dragon’s Breath Dessert” where guests indulged in tiny ice cream balls which contain liquid nitrogen that let people exhale smoke out of their mouths/nostrils ! And it was a sight to see !
A generous gift was given to patrons upon departing the beautiful Casa Loma. The commemorative 50th anniversary magazine, Lindt chocolate, a Xmas tree cookie and gift cards from Manulife Centre.
We would like to thank Megan Normandeau/Account Coordinator from Faulhaber Communications for the invitation to this event.
