The evening will include fabulous vegan food, a silent auction, live music, performers reminiscent of the mind of Hitchcock, prizes, gift bags, a cash bar and more.

The evening will also feature Guest Speaker, Camille Labchuk, who is a Canadian animal rights lawyer and Executive Director of Animal Justice.  As an advocate, Camille’s work includes documenting the commercial seal kill on Canada’s East Coast, exposing cruelty in farming, and campaigns against trophy hunting, circuses, zoos, aquariums, shark finning, puppy mills, and more. Camille is a frequent lecturer on animal law, a regular contributor to publications like the Globe and Mail and Huffington Post, and her work has been featured in countless media stories.

Come party inside of a piece of history! This Halloween event will be held at the Armour Heights Officers Mess, Toronto's most secretive estate. The historic building on the property was built in 1914 as the home of Colonel F.B. Robins. It was designed by the architectural firm of George and Moorhouse. It is noteworthy as an outstanding example of residential architecture in a Tudor Revival manner. 

These vintage photos of the estate are from the Armour Heights Officers Mess archives:
