Holt Renfrew

If you're a fan of Margherita Missoni, Chief Accessories Designer of MISSONI, we have some exciting news for you: the heiress and designer is set to make an appearance at Holt Renfrew Bloor Street in Toronto to launch MISSONI's limited-edition OrphanAid Africa plush bear and elephant.

Missoni will take the stage at the November 8th event at 5 p.m. The ultimate goal of the partnership is to raise $100,000 for children and families in Ghana. The bear and elephant duo, which are being sold exclusively at Holts, retail for $50.

"I began volunteering with OrphanAid Africa nine years ago, in its early days," says Missoni, President of OrphanAid's Italian division. "To see the changes and impact we have made to better the lives of children is incredible and rewarding. We are very pleased to have joined forces with Holt Renfrew. The funds raised will further strengthen our cause."
