It started out with the question-"how can we raise money for the pakistan flood relief effort in 2 weeks?" This is how T.O Light the Night was born. A few individuals came up with the idea of creating a scavenger hunt around Nuit blanche installations and raising money for a worthy cause with a fun and interactive scavenger hunt. T.O Light the Night has grown tremendously over the last year with the addition of many creative individuals to the team and with the support of ING Direct. The T.O Light the Night Scavenger hunt not only promotes community engagement and the spirit of giving, but is the most exciting way to explore the city on Nuit Blanche!

Nuit Blanche is one of the most unique nights that Toronto has to offer. The city core comes alive and transforms into an all night art spectacle that stimulates the senses. T.O. Light the Night Scavenger hunt allows Torontonians to interact with the artists and their installations in an extraordinary way, all while supporting an amazing cause. I welcome all of Toronto to come and experience Nuit Blanche in a new light!

TOLTN is so dear to me because it started as a humble movement inspired by young, passionate Torontonians who saw the value of Art as a means to move and connect people. It's been an exciting journey since our inception, fullof inspiring and encouraging partnerships with Community Agencies and Artists. Their enthusiasm and support has been tremendous in spreading the message of art inspiring compassion and hope. What thrills me most is seeing young Torontonians on the night of Nuit Blanche, engaged and excited about helping local and international causes while exploring the city they adore so much. TO LTN is truly a wonderful chance to discover and chance to give!
