On October 18, Team Corsage Project hit the streets for the Scotiabank Toronto Waterfront Marathon. The crew ran and walked to raise funds for The Corsage Project’s many initiatives, including the annual Boutique Ball and their scholarship programs.

 

Team Corsage raised over $8,000 during the marathon – so braving the chilly early autumn weather was well worth it. Congratulations to everyone who took part and thank you to all who donated!

 

About The Corsage Project:
The Corsage Project, working in partnership with the Children’s Aid Foundation, is a non-profit program in Toronto dedicated to giving the authentic prom experience to young women and men who would not otherwise have the opportunity to celebrate with their peers due to the high cost of formal wear.

On October 7, Greenwin Inc., one of Canada’s largest property management firms, welcomed Spider Jones, Toronto Mayor John Tory, Toronto Police Service’s 31 Division and many more members of the community to their 160 Chalkfarm property in Toronto. All had gathered for a very big reason – a presentation of a $50,000 cheque to the Believe to Achieve Organization on behalf of MLSE. This grant will fund the Spider’s Web Youth Empowerment Initiative programming that runs year-round at this property.

 

Thanks to MLSE and their generous contribution, they are making it possible for Greenwin and the Believe to Achieve Organization to continue touching the lives of Toronto’s future leaders!

This month, iconic Toronto brand Preloved is celebrating 20 years of vintage-inspired fashion. Through “upcycling”, Preloved is able to create pieces that are completely unique and never let anything go to waste.

 

In addition to this milestone, Preloved and its founder, Julia Grieve, are also celebrating 15 years of partnership with Toronto-based manufacturer Redwood Classics Apparel.

 

From the article at Now Toronto: “After she closed the Queen West shop, she moved her studio space into the Scarborough factory where every single Preloved item is made. “I don’t know how people can manufacture overseas. It’s a joke,” says Grieve. “It’s hard enough doing it in house. It’s a very intimate relationship between a designer and manufacturer. I don’t know how you do that over email.”

 

Head to the Now Toronto site to read about how each collection comes together and why made-in-Canada matters.

 

Congratulations to both Preloved and Redwood Classics Apparel on this truly Canadian partnership!
