The second annual UTAA Connected event took place on April 28, 2015 at the Urbanspace Gallery in 401 Richmond West in Toronto. Once again, this event connected fantastic charities with U of T alumni at a lively evening celebrating volunteerism.
Guest speaker, Fulvio Martinez, Community Outreach and Media Relations Manager at the TORONTO 2015 Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, spoke about the importance of volunteering and community engagement. His remarks were followed by pitches from each charity who spoke about their causes and volunteer opportunities.
We look forward to the 2016 UTAA Connected event and the opportunity to bring even more social causes and active volunteers together. Check back in 2016 for details on this event.
In the meantime, check out the highlight video below from the inaugural Connected event in May 2014.
In 2015 the UTAA launched an award to recognize a U of T alumnus/a who has made outstanding contributions to his/her community, and in doing so, has enriched the lives of others.
