A Toronto International Film Festival Gala Ticket Giveaway!

11 days, 300 films - what will you see?

The Toronto International Film Festival marks the end of the summer with excitement and glamour and you could be a part of it!
Sun-kissed and sweet, straight from the celebrity capital of the world, California Strawberries have just been announced as the official strawberry of the Toronto International Film Festival 2010.
When Canada slips into winter, we rely on our friends to the south for fresh produce - and strawberries are on everyone's top ten list. These particular strawberries want to give away two tickets to a TIFF gala screening!

TIFF, The 35th Toronto International Film Festival, September 9-19th. TIFF will be doing a lottery draw Thursday September 2nd for the Gala tickets. Gala screening tickets are high profile film screenings at Roy Thomson Hall (Toronto) each evening at 6:30pm and 9:30pm and matinées on weekends during the Festival. You must be 18 years or older and responsible for your own transportation.

One of my lucky readers will be getting a pair of these tickets. If you are over 18 and in the area and want to attend, leave a comment here on Cocktail Puppy - or email me at livinginthekitchenwithpuppies AT hotmail DOT com
Winner will be announced here and on Living in the Kitchen with Puppies on September 3rd.
