As a family owned and operated business, MAC Suites places a very high importance on helping Canada’s youth. Doriana Zohil, President of MAC Suites, has been on the Children’s Aid Foundation’s (CAF) Teddy Bear Affair event committee for the past 5 years, and in her words, “let us share la dolce vita with our youth”.
This year’s Teddy Bear Affair took place November 1st at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. While enjoying good food and good company, attendees honoured the youth of Toronto, and most importantly, delivered on the promise to change the lives of youth. The event had its most successful silent auction in history, and the event raised $1.7 million for the CAF’s key initiatives. Initiatives that help Canada’s children/ youth reinvent their lives by giving them the support and skills they need.
From the beautiful fountain surrounded by Italian-themed handmade teddy bears, live entertainment including musicians, jugglers, and stilt-walkers, to the Wall of Hope modelled after Verona’s Casa di Giulietta, the 28th annual Teddy Bear Affair was truly magnificent.
