14th Annual MYPAC Social @ Malaparte
Sep 20 @ 6:00 pm – 10:00 pm

The Master in Environmental Studies at York Planning Alumni Committee (MYPAC) invites you to the 14th Annual Planning Alumni Social.  This year's event coincides with the 50th anniversary of the Faculty of Environmental Studies and along with this momentous occasion, we have decided to shift the date of our social to the early fall.

Once again we have chosen to host our event at a truly unique venue, Malaparte at the TIFF Bell Lightbox. Located within Toronto’s vibrant downtown entertainment district, this beautiful venue provides attendees an opportunity to socialize in a breathtaking space, while overlooking stunning cityscape views and enjoying the delicious catering of Oliver and Bonacini.

Purchase your ticket today at: go.yorku.ca/mypac-18 or visit mypacalumni.com for more information.

MYPAC relies on the generous support of our sponsors to host this annual event. Please visit our sponsorship page to contribute.
