Last week, Ron White Foundation launched the 18th year of Canada's largest shoe drive. Until February 9, follow the footsteps of celebrity participants - including Rachel McAdams and David Spade - by donating your gently worn winter footwear at any Ron White location for good karma and a $25 credit towards a future purchase. This year, the men's, women's, and children's shoes will be distributed to charities Dress for Success, Streethealth, Halton Women's Place, New Circles, and Ve'ahavta.
Yorkdale Shopping Centre (3401 Dufferin St) just keeps getting swankier. Earlier this week, Prada opened a 3,000 square foot boutique inside Holt Renfrew - right next to the department store's other luxury brands Chanel, Gucci, Dior, and Louis Vuitton.
