This past Wednesday, we had the privilege of supporting Youth Without Shelter (a local Toronto youth shelter) at their annual event Cover Me Urban. With the aim of raising funds for YWS’ mission of ending youth homelessness, Cover Me Urban was a night of music, entertainment and good nosh.

To get a glimpse of what went down that night, take a quick scroll through our pictures below!

It was a blast seeing everyone come together for a worthy cause, and we’re happy to learn that the event raised over $140,000 for Youth Without Shelter! A special thank you also to our Artisan Kevin for assiduously making and packaging the hundreds of ice cream samples we handed out – we couldn’t have done it without you!
