On June 17, more than 100 of the city’s most stylish citizens gathered for a private affair to officially launch this year’s Heart of Fashion event. Graciously hosted by Event Chair, Holly Miklas, guests enjoyed a fabulous evening of food, fashion and cocktails at the stunning Bridle Path home of Holly and her husband Paul.
This sensational evening was just a sneak preview of the main Heart of Fashion event, coming October 25 to Shops at Don Mills. We are proud to announce that Heart of Fashion will be hosted by Global TV’s Rosey Edeh, host of The Morning Show and anchor of the News at Noon, and that Hans Koechling, Producer and Artistic Director of The Image Is… will be producing the fashion show, with styles from the incredible retailers of the Shops at Don Mills and special showings by prestigious Canadian designers. With star-studded support, Heart of Fashion promises to be an unforgettable evening.
“My husband Paul and I have watched the Hospital grow and thrive with donor support,” says Holly Miklas. “Our three children were born at North York General and now I feel very fortunate to have been able to dedicate my time for the second year in a row as Event Chair for Heart of Fashion.”
This year, proceeds from Heart of Fashion will directly impact how patients diagnosed with breast cancer are treated at our innovative BMO Financial Group Breast Diagnostic Centre (BDC). Your support will allow us to be the first hospital in the GTA to provide our patients with seed localization, a revolutionary new surgical procedure to remove small tumors in the breast with the best possible accuracy.
North York General was the first hospital to meet 100 per cent of Ontario’s wait times for surgery, including cancer surgery. Participation and support for Heart of Fashion will help us be the first to deliver this revolutionary new procedure and provide our patients with the most accurate surgical care.
Experience an exclusive night of fashion, gourmet food, exotic cocktails, entertainment and a live auction featuring two tickets to the hottest fashion event of the year, the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Hosted for the first time ever in London, England, these tickets are the most coveted live auction prize in Toronto. North York General is honoured to be the first charitable organization to offer tickets to this elite fashion event two years in a row and you won’t want to miss the bidding frenzy.
