Movie Night | Toronto

Written by Anne Pham on December 13th, 2016

“Will you please tell Santa that instead of presents this year, I just want my family back. No toys. Nothing but Peter, Kate, Buzz, Megan, Linnie, and Jeff. And my aunt and my cousins. And if he has time, my Uncle Frank. Okay?”

This November in collaboration with the St. Mike’s Philanthropy Council, the Toronto Trek for Teens celebrated the holiday season with (what else?) Home Alone! For just a $1.00 donation, movie lovers gathered in Brennan Hall on the U of T campus to catch the family favourite and enjoyed some pizza and drinks.

In addition to the movie, there was also a raffle for some prizes and a clothing/toy drive. Over 122 clothing items (worth about $640) were collected and the movie itself raised over $100.  All event proceeds and donations went towards Toronto youth shelters.

A special thanks goes out to the SMC Campus Ministry for supplying the food and all the attendees who came out to support the cause!

What is the Trek for Teens Foundation?

The Toronto Trek for Teens, or T3 for short, is a charitable project set up by youth, for youth. The trek itself consists of a team-oriented race which takes place in downtown Toronto every Spring. Teams of youth ages 13-19 solve problems and find hidden clues, working together to complete the course (much like the Amazing Race). Throughout the day, there are other ongoing festivities at and around Yonge-Dundas Square. Find out more about the Foundation.
