Last year's party was such a hit that we've made it an annual event. Indulge your senses and join us at the second annual Woman to Woman Luncheon in the garden. As its name implies, this party is for women, so bring your sisters, mothers, grannies, aunties, girlfriends, daughters, neighbours, significant others, colleagues, bosses-in short, all the important women in your life. We'll be dining al fresco (but in stylish comfort) in the beautiful TBG gardens, surrounded by flowers, floral displays, and lovely live music. Indulge in the exquisitely presented culinary specialties of five of Toronto's top caterers, sip on delicious Ontario wine, browse among the charming garden boutiques and see a show of the latest fashions from Wendy Bannerman. Check out---and bid on---the fabulous prizes in our silent auction. Enjoy your loot bag plus other surprises. We promise you an afternoon you will remember!
Dress: Festive garden party gear, topped off by a hat or fascinator---there will be prizes awarded for the most creative chapeaux, as judged by Globe and Mail Style editor Danny Sinopoli, National Ballet luminary Rex Harrington, Writer/photographer Janet Davis, and fashion maven Wendy Bannerman of Bannerman's.
