HoHoTO’s future

We’ve been having a blast focusing on the impact we can have throughout the year across the digital community. From highlighting amazing STEM professionals, to inspiring kids from a variety of backgrounds to pursue careers in STEM, to hosting inclusive professional events, to supporting YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre, we’ve worked hard to make an impact on our community.

Serving the digital community has been rewarding, but with some changes to the team that’s brought you HoHoTO over the past four years and helped carry on the legacy of this amazing community event for the past decade, we’ve made the difficult decision to not host in 2018 the annual HoHoTO celebration.

For almost a decade HoHoTO has been many things: it’s been a holiday party in support of a great cause. It’s been a dance, a raffle, a tweet storm, and a photojam of Toronto’s digital community. It’s been about meeting new friends and old. And in doing so we’ve raised almost $500,000 for local charities to date!

We’re looking towards 2019 with some amazing youth programming and professional events, and are open to ideas, collaborators, leaders, and volunteers to bring together our amazing community at a holiday party next year. Would you like to build and continue the annual holiday party? If you want to help bring this community together, we have some great ideas on how to transition the event for the next generation. Please get in touch.
