GTA’s premium wine cellar @dymonwinecellar is now open at 1460 The Queensway, Toronto!

The modern concept of wine storage has changed dramatically with collectors, agents, and enthusiasts eager to show off their precious wines more daring and inventive ways.

I found the most perfect state-of-the-art fine-wine storage facility in our own back yard (Toronto). I recently went on a private tour of Dymon Wine Cellar has with General Manager, Christian Frayssignes, and found it to be a place of inspiration and elegance, offering high-quality professionally controlled private cellars with precision humidity, insulation, temperature controls with modern technology! What else stood out for me was the exclusive wine club facilities, including tasting rooms and member’s lounge.

Dymon Wine Cellar has certainly been designed to be exceptional, like the wines you keep!

The wine cellars are now open.  The wine club will be open once the COVID restrictions are lifted.

One Billion Steps Challenge for Breast Cancer Research! [Breast Cancer Society of Canada]

For nearly 30 years, thousands of walkers have joined us at our Annual Mother’s Day Walks, powered by Cleo. This year, things are different, so rather than getting together, we’re inviting everyone to take part in the One Billion Steps Challenge for Breast Cancer Research every day in May.

“It’s an opportunity to do something good for yourself while doing something to help prevent 14 Canadian women from dying of breast cancer every day,” said Kimberly Carson, CEO of the Breast Cancer Society of Canada. She continues, “It’s important now more than ever to remain active for both our physical and mental health. We encourage everyone to get active throughout May – and to get your steps in however it’s right for you. You can be inside in your living room, or in your backyard – wherever it is safe for you.”

Together We Will Reach One Billion Steps!

Everyone is invited to register at mothersdaywalk.ca and have their steps count towards the One Billion Steps Goal! We have some great exercise videos and incentives to motivate everyone to get active throughout May – whether walking, stepping, exercising or dancing.

Challenge your family, friends and colleagues!

Stay active all throughout May! Our mobile app will track your ranking against the entire pool of participants, and you can share your achievements on your social media channels.

There is no cost to join and we have incentives for everyone who raises more than $50 in donations.

Register today at mothersdaywalk.ca

Before May 1, we will send you the mobile app (iPhone and Android) that will track your steps from May 1- 31.

CEO of Cleo, Lisa Hryciuk is taking the One Billion Steps Challenge, challenging her colleagues to do 20,000 steps every day in May. “It’s a big goal, but there’s work to do – more than 26,000 Canadians are diagnosed with breast cancer every year! Cleo is proud to have supported the Breast Cancer Society of Canada and its mission to save lives through breast cancer research for 18 years.”

The Breast Cancer Society of Canada has partnered with GenWin to provide the One Billion Steps Challenge. “Once registered, participants will receive a link to download a mobile app which will track steps and fundraising progress. It’s easy to invite friends and family to support you or to challenge them to participate,” said Moody Hashem, CEO of GenWin.

We’re challenging all Canadians to join the One Billion Steps Challenge to help save lives through breast cancer research!

Starting December 31st after 7 p.m., all TTC streetcars, buses and subways will be free of charge until 7 a.m. on January 1st.

Corby Spirit & Wine also promotes responsible drinking through this partnership by various activations and messages through its website and social media. For more information about Corby Safe Rides and for a chance to win one of 10 prizes of a year of free TTC transportation, visit CorbySafeRides.ca and engage on social media using the hashtag #CorbySafeRides.

“New Years’ Eve is one of the most celebrated nights of the year and we want to do our part in helping people get home safe,” said Corby CEO Patrick O’Driscoll. “For the last seven years, we’ve provided over 1.2m rides to Torontonians, keeping our streets safe on one of the biggest party nights on the calendar.

“We could not be more proud of this partnership and its results keeping people from driving when they have been drinking.”
