A celebration of home to support those who don’t have one. Homes for Dinner is the coolest city-wide dinner party to hit Toronto. On November 19th, guests took a chance and bought tickets to a dinner party without knowing their host or at whose home they’ll be eating. The night began with all ticket holders gathering for a fabulous cocktail reception at William Ashley China – Bloor & Bay. Here guests were handed an envelope: inside their host and address was revealed! They dashed off to dinner for a night full of entertainment and amazing food. Strangers shared a delicious feast, celebrated what it means to have a home and created a sense of community together.
Over $100,000 cash was raised to support people who don’t have a home in this city. Homes for Dinner also raised over $100,000 in-kind and in total, there were over 300 participants. Please visit our social media pages for more photos and updates.
The coolest, yummiest way to do something good!
Some call it social dining...
Some say it's a party with a purpose...
We think of it as an opportunity for you to share great food for a cause among friends!
How does it work?
Plan a dinner party. It could be fancy dress, home cooking, or your favorite take-out.
