Thank you to those who joined us at Heart of Fashion 2018! You didn’t have to go to London, Paris, New York or Milan – you saw the best of Canadian design in North York, along with delicious cuisine, and the infamous dancing on the catwalk!

Through your support, we raised $1,244,000 – the most in Heart of Fashion History – to help redevelop North York General’s Cancer Care Unit into the vibrant new Baruch/Weisz Cancer Centre. We hope you realize just how big of an impact your generosity will have on transforming cancer care in our community.

We are so grateful to be supported by such a generous family of donors, willing to go above and beyond to help patients and families, right in your own backyard. Thank you and we hope to see you again at Heart of Fashion 2020.

A Message From the NYGH Foundation Chair

As our signature event, Heart of Fashion reflects the high expectations of our guests who come back time after time to experience our explosion of food, cocktails, fashion and entertainment.

All to benefit North York General, the best in its own right.
