The 16th Annual Venetian Ball

Friday, November 6, 2009
The 16th Annual Venetian Ball is one of the marquee Toronto society events that draws the city's movers and shakers to a night of fine dining and entertainment, all for a good cause. All funds raised at the event help the Villa Charities to provide culturally sensitive care to improve the quality of life for seniors. This year's ball, held at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre on October 30, 2009, raised $1,008,000.

We have lists of the high-calibre establishments involved with this alluring event of beautiful masks and ball gowns, as well as a copy of the Venetian inspired menu from the award-winning Trattoria do' Forni in Venice.

Even without the masks, the charity, and the fun, the who's who list of food providers would make any foodie wish they were there.
