The Danforth Business Improvement Area rings in the holiday season in style with its Toast to the Holidays event on Saturday, December 3, 2:00pm to 5:30pm.
NHL Hockey legends Todd Warriner, Lou Franceschetti and Terry Clancy will be on hand to welcome guests to an afternoon of shopping and sipping at local businesses. Participating Danforth retailers from Broadview to Hampton Avenues will be offering consumers a wonderful shopping experience complete with wine & food samples, strolling carolers, a special open house tour of the newly renovated Danforth Music Hall, and Toronto’s most unique shopping bag charity tree.
“This 2nd Annual Toast To The Holidays event offers something for the whole family,” said Susan Puff, Executive Director for the Danforth BIA. “From tasty treats, to a visit with Santa, and the opportunity to meet and chat with some of the NHL and Toronto Maple Leaf greats, this is an afternoon that will put the holly and jolly spirit into all who attend.”
