Suzanne Rogers Presents Marchesa
Suzanne Rogers Presents Marchesa was arguably this year’s most exclusive, must-attend event on Toronto’s social calendar. Held at the Carlu, the glamorous black-tie gala started with an elegant champagne reception, followed by a breathtaking runway show, scrumptious dinner and a rare live auction. The event raised $950,000, with proceeds going towards children’s charities that include the Herbie Fund, the Children’s Aid Foundation, the Rose Home for Children in New Delhi and the Sarah Ferguson Foundation.
