Called “the most fun festival EVER” by one of this year’s first-time visitors, our annual Grange Festival was held on August 7th with over 4,000 community members in attendance. It was the most attended Grange Festival to date. The sunny day was perfect for playing games, watching performances, having fun with face paint, snapping a pic at the photo booth, and eating free hot dogs with family or friends.
We would like to say a special thank you to Adam Vaughn, Olivia Chow, and Sabrina Zuniga. All three candidates for the federal Spadina-Fort York riding came by to say a few words to the community and support Grange Festival.
We could not have made this event happen without the help of our exceptional volunteers, dedicated staff, and generous sponsors. Thank you!!!
Our presenting sponsor, International Financial Data Services, provided over 80 volunteers this year. They helped make the festival run smoothly by leading games and activities in the Kiddie Corner and Game Zone areas and serving up yummy treats at the popcorn, hot dog, and sno-cone stations. They presented University Settlement with a $10,000 cheque in sponsorship of the event; their contribution will go directly towards our programs and services. We would also like to thank Kiwanis Club of Casa Loma for their $5,000 sponsorship, and Filion Wakely Thorup Angeletti LLP, Wilson Vukelich LLP, and Lucky Moose for their $2,500 sponsorships.
Most of all, thanks to our community members, young and young at heart, who came out to support our event. We look forward to seeing you next year!
