One of the most glamorama fundraising events of the year is here again: be fabulous for a cause at Fashion Cares! It costs, but the funds raised for the AIDS Committee of Toronto will give you some sexy karma. This year’s June 1 party boasts a circus theme, Broadway dance numbers, a fashion show (naturally) and a sideshow tent full of buskers, carnies and performers. And lots of cute people to look at. Afterparty-only tickets are $40 ($50 at the door), general admission tix are $100 (including a cocktail reception), and gala admission is $350, which includes everything and a three-course dinner to boot. Gala tix are available from ACT via 416-340-9255. For all other tickets call 416-870-8000.
