What a thrill HoHoTO 2017 was. Hundreds of individuals from digital communities in Toronto filled the Mod Club on December 8th for a night of food, fun, networking, and most importantly, fundraising for up and coming digital practitioners at the YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre. Please select the video above for some of the feels.
We’re so grateful for all of your support over the years and are thrilled to announce Together, our new organization name and identity that brings together all our year-round initiatives made possible by the money raised at our HoHoTO events, sponsorship, and our other events.
HoHoTO has been our trademark name since 2008, but with year round initiatives that shape a more inclusive digital community, we need to bring all these efforts Together, and move away from being seen as just a holiday party.
HoHoTO will remain as the name of our annual holiday party, bringing our great community of influencers and doers together in support of the YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre and our other year-round initiatives.
Save the date: HoHoTO is back December 8, 2017
On December 8, 2017, HoHoTO is back in full effect! A night of celebration, food, drinks, fellowship and donations towards the YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre, this annual holiday party is one to marker. Clear your evening schedule and join us at the Mod Club Theatre from 7:30pm to 1:30am.
With tremendous team effort and the help of sponsors, community supporters, and attendees, HoHoTO raised $22,500 in support of YWCA Toronto’s Girls’ Centre at the annual HoHoTO holiday benefit party.
The HoHoTO team presented the girls with the big red and white cheque on the HoHoTO stage last Thursday.
“It’s because of sponsors, community support, and event attendees that we’re able to contribute to the Girl’s Centre and the activities they provide that lead to young women joining us in the workforce in a few years,” said HoHoTO Co-Chair Lee Dale during the cheque presentation.
HoHoTO’s Girl’s Tech Tour is an extension of HoHoTO’s mission, which is to forge the next generation of founders, funders, and technology professionals. The very first Girls’ Tech Tour was held on November 18.
With the help of creative communications agency 88 Creative and the many participating organizations, girls between the ages of 13 and 18 were educated and inspired by a day of exploration, visiting Toronto-based organizations across media, fashion, wearables, professional services, education, finance, and other industries.
