The University Arts Women’s Club Annual Christmas Luncheon was held at the President’s Residence at the University of Toronto. President Gay Thomson chose St. Stephen’s Community House as their Christmas charity this year.
St. Stephen’s develops and provides a wide range of programs to help identify, prevent and alleviate social and economic problems for individuals and communities such as Toronto’s downtown. The Executive Director of St. Stephen’s house, Bill Sinclair, explained that they provide childcare, services and housing for youth, seniors and new comers to the neighbourhood.
Delmanor Wynford’s culinary team provided a delicious lunch for the event, followed by a silver tea service and cake to celebrate the ninety year relationship between the Women’s Club and St. Stephen’s Community House.
Guests were treated to the exceptional musical talents of Alison Mackay, retired Principal Double Bass Player with Tafelmusik Baroque Orchestra, that is based in Toronto and was founded in 1979. Alison has played both violin and double bass with Tafelmusik for forty years.
It was a wonderful event that brought this group of friends together to share a lovely afternoon of delicious food and fantastic entertainment. Friendship and fellowship is the fabric of this group of women whose friendship spans several decades.
