New Roots Dinner Series

Oh what a nightSpruce--New-Roots-Dinner-Series-image! Contributed by Kim Alke – owner of Spruce Cabbagetown. The First Annual New Roots Dinner Series, created by Daniel et Daniel as a fundraiser for Green Thumbs Growing Kids, was held October 2nd at eight locations in and around Cabbagetown, including Akasha Art Gallery, Kendall & Co., Labour of Love, Spruce and Toronto Dance Theatre offered their spaces and hosted the VIP dinners.

 
Guests at the intimate dinner series enjoyed a full menu designed by award winning chef, Karen O’Connor, with many ingredients grown right here in Cabbagetown by the Green Thumbs program in the neighbourhood schools, it was very special for everyone and people were excited to take part.  We’ve worked with Daniel et Daniel often for our events in the store, but this was such a fun chance to join-forces and put together something so lovely.

 
It was a lot of fun for me as I had the opportunity to work with two very different spaces for the event: 25 people at our studio loft and 12 in the store. It was a great chance for us to connect with the community and our customers and be part of something that brought a lot of businesses in the neighbourhood together.
