Last Thursday, YCI’s gracious board members hosted YCI’s second quarterly fundraising dinner at mystery location #2 in the Toronto downtown Core. The only similarity to the past Peruvian themed dinner was the cryptic directions guests received; walk half a block until you find the entrance to a grafittied alleyway, continue to walk until you find a woman carrying a Wooden Giraffe.
URSA Chef Jonathon Lucas, delighted guests all evening long creating a stunning 5-course meal consisting of bright seasonal ingredients, including a root vegetable salad, butter and tea soaked lobster and de-constructed pumpkin pie.
Guests enjoyed the open-concept space while sipping on wine and beer served by a striking and witty young intern. YCI’s latest infographic, breaking down the accomplishments of 2011 was on display for the party-goers to study as the conversation shifted to youth development and the importance of investing in youth.
The night was a great success thanks to our engaged board members and new supporters. We appreciate all who contributed to the night and cannot wait for the next dinner. Email firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in receiving an invitation to the next.
