Toronto Celebrates Sudbury was born from an idea to bring together current and former Sudburians to raise funds for local Sudbury charitable organizations while having some fun doing it. The first event was held in 2011 in Toronto’s Distillery District. 250 people attended an amazing night in support of Laurentian University and their Next 50 campaign. 2012 saw the event move to a very aptly named “99 Sudbury” where almost 300 Sudburians gathered in support of Health Sciences North. For 2013, Toronto Celebrates Sudbury was held at the Hockey Hall of Fame and the event raised funds for the Sudbury Community Foundation. Since its incepetion the event has generated over $150,000 for Sudbury charitable organizations.

Join us for the 2017 Toronto Celebrates Sudbury on Thursday, November 9th, 2017 at Globe Bistro, Toronto, Ontario. This year, funds raised will support important groups that bring vitality and life to Sudbury:
