Cover Me Urban

The fifth annual Cover Me Urban is back at Maison Mercer on April 11th, 2018. Presented by Tangerine and hosted by TSN’s Cabral “Cabbie” Richards, the event is a celebration of the diverse flavours and sights of Toronto.  Most importantly, Cover Me Urban is also a fundraiser for Youth Without Shelter (YWS) and this year’s goal is to raise over $100,000. Tickets are $125 with all the proceeds will be going to support the programs at YWS. When it’s going to a good cause, it’s definitely worth the price tag.
