Glitz and Glam - the ORNAO and OPEAC dinner and Dance

This year's ORNAO and OPEAC dinner will be one to remember. We are happy to share that a venue has been booked for our Dinner & Dance! We will be enjoying a fantastic evening at The Liberty Grand in downtown Toronto on the Exhibition Place Grounds. This venue is located right down on Lakeshore Blvd, directly across from the lake. There will be bus transportation from the Hyatt to The Liberty Grand, but the venue is also very accessible to all via public transit, taxi, or car. There is ample parking also available for those who wish to drive.

Originally constructed in 1926, this one hundred thousand square foot complex gracefully blends the exuberant Beaux Arts monumentality of the banquet rooms with the classical interior finishes. The Liberty Grand boasts three impressive grand ballrooms and one open concept room, decorated in a traditional early 1900's elegance. With crystal chandeliers, twenty seven foot ceilings, iron-laced balconies and arched windows, you will enjoy a luxurious feel of understated elegance. These rooms adorned with fine imported period furnishings, magnificent domes and columns bring back memories of an authentically historic atmosphere.

We will be hosting this event in The Artifact Room of The Liberty Grand, a modern styled room, to accommodate our classy and glamourous event. This would allow for a very social evening, giving you the opportunity to gather and mingle with others very comfortably, yet very classy. This room also includes the use of an outdoor courtyard space for you to enjoy/

Be Flashy, Be Showy, and Be Extravagant for a night to remember. We look forward to seeing you there.
