In support of Canadian women, we have decided to partner with the Toronto chapter of Dress for Success, an international not-for-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of women, and ask that you bring with you some gently used business attire to donate to this organization. You can also make a financial donation to Dress for Success at the event. A tax receipt will be issued for donations over $25 and will be mailed to you following the event.
