Weekly Community Events Guide: Dec 14-Dec 20 2009: Blog: Refresh Events

Welcome to another edition of the Weekly Community Events Guide for the week of Dec 14th, 2009. Each and every Monday, we list upcoming events in the web, technology, marketing, social media, public relations and communications space in Toronto and bring them to you. Event details are provided by the simply awesome YouSayYeah Calendar and Eventbrite. Don’t see your event listed here? Get in touch with your event details.

So without any further ado, here’s what’s happening in Toronto this week (be warned, it’s a slow week due to the holidays):

Social Gatherings

HoHoTo (#hohoto): With our original Holiday party in 2008 and the summer spinoff (oh so wittily labeled HoHOTo) we’ve managed to raise over $38,000 for the Daily Bread Foodbank. Thi ts year, we’re going to try to beat that in one night. Go to the website. Buy a ticket or sponsor the event. Come out on Dec 16th and celebrate the holidays with 600 of your closest industry friends, while raising money for an important cause. (Wednesday December 16th 2009)
