Why choose TOBEN for your next Charity Gala

Proven Track Record

Over the last decade, TOBEN has become a trusted partner for a number of charitable organizations in the GTA and beyond. Known for extreme care and dedication, we have proudly contributed to the success of many of the city’s most iconic fundraising events and annual charity galas.

Dedicated Event Management

We are well versed in the scale and grandeur of charity galas and take our involvement to the next level. With a keen attention to detail, we immerse ourselves in every aspect of the event well beyond the realms of food & beverage while acting as a support to your team and all vendors involved.

Innovative Cuisine

TOBEN is renowned for bringing guests an unparalleled culinary experience. We work hand in hand with you to develop a bespoke menu complete with unique and innovative dishes paired with exceptional service. Our goal is to ensure your valued guests leave the event eager to return year after year.



  • Do you offer charitable discounts?

    Yes, we offer charitable discounts and silent auction donations. Additionally, we will work with our vendors, such as staffing and rentals, to provide the best possible pricing for your event.

  • Do You Offer Tastings?

    Yes, tastings can be arranged for large-scale charity galas. Your dedicated Event Manager will be available to walk you through this process.

  • Can you accommodate all dietary needs?

    We offer a range of gluten free, dairy free, nut free, kosher, and halal options. Additionally, we are heavily focused on creating delicious plant based options for vegan and vegetarian guests. We request clients submit all allergies and dietary needs when providing the final guest count. Based on the final menu, we prepare dishes omitting allergens or providing an alternative that accommodates the special needs of your guests.

  • Do you offer Beverage Services?

    Yes, our team is happy to assist you with any beverage needs and can provide open bar packages, cash bars, a la carte, or beverage on consumption. We also offer soft beverage/garnish packages and coffee service. Custom menus/estimates will be prepared in the proposal process based on the variety offered, timeline for service and preferred selections. For consumption packages, a minimum of 1 drink per guest is required and additionally consumed beverages are billed post-event on the final invoice. Beverages may be provided under TOBEN’s Catering Endorsement Licence, and our team can also assist with applying for a Special Occasions Permit as required in public spaces or venues. Private residences do not require a liquor licence.

  • What other services do you offer?

    As a full service catering company, we include food, beverage, staffing, and rentals required for service in our comprehensive proposals. In addition to these standard offerings, we can assist with other event requirements including: tenting (both for guest seating and for satellite kitchens), valet, power sourcing, furniture rentals, and more. If we’re unable to assist you directly, we have partnerships with many amazing vendors who hold the same quality and professionalism as our team. We would be happy to make meaningful connections across planners, florals, decor, AV, and entertainment to support your event.
