The Homegrown Series: Outdoor (Kelly's Pick)
Sept 29 | 3-9PM | Waldorf Hotel

Imagine this: A sand covered dance floor, three live bands, two DJs, and yummy cocktails on a beautiful sunny afternoon. Wait, it's real! Check out my boy Ian's event at the famous Waldorf Hotel this Saturday for the craziest luau limbo party to wrap up the Summer in style.

Feeding Hearts & Minds (Miraj's pick)
Sept 30 | 5:30-7:30 PM | Lakeview Multicultural United Church | By donation

Feeding Hearts & Minds is a monthly community dinner and dialogue, hosted by Spirited Social Change. It’s a chance to reconnect with people, to sing together, to remember what feeds your work, and to re-engage in strategic and fulfilling ways. It's intentionally inter-cultural, inter-spiritual, and inter-generational. So show up with your whole self - and bring your grandparents, neighbours, kids, and friends. thanks Christine!
