Gather, March 2nd 2023

We gathered at Mildred's Temple Kitchen in Toronto to celebrate and protect the beauty of Ontario. It was an evening of music, art, activism, and inspiring conversations about the future of our province. This fundraising event raised $40K to support the efforts of our organization, Keep the Greenbelt Promise, and the Water Watchers. Thank you to the generous support of our donors!
