National Club Named One of The Top Toronto Members Only Clubs for Young Professionals has named The National Club as one of the top private clubs for young professionals to meet, mingle, have fun and generally advance their careers:

"Toronto has many exclusive spots for young professionals and while they do require special requirements to get in and will cost you a pretty penny to join, these posh establishments can be worth every cent.

The perks? You get to sit amidst like minded professionals who share your love for culture (and expensive wines and whiskeys) as you network and expand your creative horizons. You also get a cool space to bring clients, work from, host meetings, and see and be seen.

So we present to you Toronto’s most elite members only clubs for young professionals..."

Dale Patterson and wife Joan.
Last week's "Giving Back" charity gala was an outstanding success. The gala was in support of Opportunity International Canada, a micro-finance charity that works with women entrepreneurs in the third word helping them break the cycle of poverty by giving them the tools, funds and training to succeed.

With the generous support and participation of National Club members and our sponsors and contributors - and with a matching donor - this year's Giving Back gala raised approximately $90,000 for Opportunity International. Together with the fundraising golf tournament held earlier this year, the National Club raised a total of approximately $120,000 for Opportunity International - a new record for The National Club.

Since it was begun seven years ago, The National Club's Giving Back program has raised and donated approximately $450,000 for charities.
