Heart of Fashion is the ultimate party of the year! An exclusive night of food, fashion, and entertainment, with a goal of raising over $1 million dollars in support of the redevelopment of North York General Hospital’s Cancer Care Program.

This eagerly anticipated event will take place Saturday May 12, 2018 in a secret location in North York. Your support of this event will help NYGH transform the clinical space that hosts our Cancer Care Program into a centralized hub for cancer care – giving patients access to everything they need in one location and putting them at the centre of care.

What To Wear

Heart of Fashion is glamorous! It is where you go to watch the sleekest show of the season—but ultimately; it is also the guests who set the latest trends. We love to take cues from some of our past guests. Here are a few tips to keep in mind as you’re readily preparing your red carpet attire:
Colour – The colour scheme for the evening is taking its inspiration from rubies & amethysts!
Très Chic– The dress code is cocktail wear meets runway. Show off your personal style, while watching carefully curated collections of the seasons’ hottest fashions. Don’t forget your fabulous accessories.
Bring Out the Shoes – It matters not if you are able to walk in them, let alone for long periods of time. The shoes will be grabbing as much attention as the coat and the dress, so you’d better be getting them out and start practicing. They will hurt, they will kill, but the real reason for their existence is made clear here: they were made for Fashion Shows!

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.

Whether it is a corporate sponsorship designed to provide your guests with the best night in the city or a group of friends or families sharing a luxury lounge by the runway and dance floor, Heart of Fashion has built a brand that delivers a mixture of elegance, chic, cool and above all, fun! All to benefit North York General, the best in its own right.

As Chair of the Foundation Board, I look forward to seeing you on May 12th, 2018 and breaking the million dollar mark again!”
