On Tuesday, June 5, Corktown’s Enoch Turner Schoolhouse played host to the inaugural Starlit Night, a fundraising gala put on by Moorelands Community Services, a 100-year-old Toronto charity. Described as the first-ever un-gala-like “camp gala”, it was held to help send children affected by poverty to camp.

The event was a huge success with more than $70,000 raised.
