Metro Toronto Convention Centre
Chidren's Aid Foundation
The theme of the 27th Annual Teddy Bear Affiar was 'California', showcasing the best of the Golden State with a spectacular evening of West Coast-style glitz, glamour, and decadence. Panoramas of sunsets, cliff sides, beaches, and piers were projected on the walls of the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, and palm trees lined the pathways.
The evening's festivities were emcee'd by comedian Sean Cullen, and the musical entertainment was provided by Theo Tams of Canadian Idol fame, and headlined by the legendary Brian Wilson.
All of the proceeds from this event went towards the Children's Aid Foundation; this year, a record-breaking $2 million was raised.
