Hellenic Hope Centre
Established in 1999 when 6 mothers of children with special needs met to discuss the need for a support mechanism for themselves, their children and their family members to meet to discuss and create programs which provide support and services to people with physical and special needs and their families. Day programs for adults with a developmental disability age 21 and older is currently the main focus.
Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto is a registered charity that offers cancer support programming to those living with cancer along with their family and friends. Gilda’s Club also has bereavement programs to anyone who has lost someone to the disease. Our inclusive program of social, emotional and practical support for the “whole family” – adults, teens and children as well as their family and friends has proven its effectiveness and is regarded as an essential component of a complete cancer care plan and complement to medical treatments. By supporting Gilda’s Club Greater Toronto, you are helping to ensure that no one has to face cancer alone.
Join the Dance Canada
Launched in 1994 as a not-for-profit project of the American Ballroom Theater Company from New York City, Join the Dance Canada is an arts-in-education program teaching ballroom dance to grades five and six students of participating Toronto schools. Subject of the documentary film Mad Hot Ballroom and its founder Pierre Dulaine, this is hailed as an effective program for not only teaching social dance but also creating an atmosphere which allows students who are typically introverted and reserved, to step out and shine. It builds self-esteem and interactive social skills as it improves confidence and children’s ability to relate to others.
From all of us at Palais Royale and the Pegasus Hospitality Group we want to congratulate “The Shape of Water” for winning
four academy awards. It was our pleasure to host your Oscar party here at Palais Royale, and thank you Paul Denham Austerberry for the Shout Out from the Oscar stage. It was a thrill for us to be part of this historic moment, and proud to know that our cities of Toronto and Hamilton were such an intrinsic part of the film.
Congratulations to all cast and crew of The Shape of Water!
This summer Palais Royale, Mayor John Tory and Chicago artist Justus Roe unveiled the City’s latest piece of street art. The project was part of a cultural exchange between sister cities Toronto and Chicago to commemorate Canada’s 150th birthday and the ‘Year of Public Art’ that is taking place in Chicago.
The project is part of the StreetARToronto Partnership Program and is a collaboration with the STEPS Initiative, an award-winning, Toronto-based public arts organization. The project brought together the artist and local residents to transform the Roncesvalles Pedestrian Bridge, one of Toronto’s busiest connections to the waterfront.
Justus Roe, an American artist, lives and works in Chicago.
He works in a variety of visual mediums including canvas painting, large scale wall paintings / murals and sculptural installations. His work references architecture, city grid systems, and landscapes. His stylized forms, mark making and color palette develop work that is at once reminiscent of aerial perspectives and metropolitan environments.
Come down to the waterfront to see this amazing piece of street art.
Palais Royale has a tradition of creating memories.
Farid and Parmis met at Palais Royale on December 31st 2011, five minutes before the New Year’s Eve ball dropped.
They spoke until 3 in the morning on the deck of Palais, and realized there was a spark. Five years later, Farid brought Parmis back to Palais “just to see the place again and bring back the memories of when they first met”. Little did she realize that Farid was about to propose on that same deck they got to know each other for the first time.
And of course she said yes.
It is always such a pleasure to continue the tradition of creating memories here at Palais Royale.
