On Saturday, October 15th, 2016, Toronto Arts and Events had the pleasure to attend the fourth annual Hush Hush party, an annual themed costume fundraiser hosted by The New Collection, the Toronto Public Library’s young patron’s group. This year’s Hush Hush raised a total of $60,000 for the Young Voices program, a suite of programming that encourages creative expression in the city’s youth.

This year’s theme was Heroes and Villains so the Bloor/Gladstone library was transformed into an after-hours hideout with super hero-themed cocktails and décor. Given that The New Collection caters to young professionals, it was refreshing to attend a party that had a easygoing and relaxing vibe, where the guests simply wanted to enjoy themselves, meet fellow supporters of the Toronto public library system, and show off their costumes. Since dressing up as a superhero/villain/comic book character was encouraged that night, there were some guests that pulled out all of the stops for their action hero attire. If Harry Potter, Harley Quinn, Cat Woman, and the entire Watchmen team are reading this article, shout out to all of you because your costumes were awesome!

The bookshelves were transformed into open bars and food stations that served tacos, cupcakes, and popsicles. A cartoonist was also in attendance, drawing caricatures of the steady lineup of guests throughout the entire night. DJ Barbi was absolutely phenomenal as she kept the guests dancing until the end with her near-perfect selection of music, ranging from classic hip-hop to cheesy but fun party songs.

Since 2013, these Hush Hush parties have raised over $180,000 for various Toronto Public Library programs and resources.
