TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - April 7, 2009) - PinkSlipParty.ca will host its first Pink Slip Party for mid-senior level professionals from Toronto's business community interested in expanding their networks while helping those less fortunate.

Spend the evening in a relaxed environment meeting other professionals from diverse industries including recruiting professionals. PinkSlipParty.ca will connect attendees who have been or are about to be pink slipped (wearing pink bracelets) with friends of pinkslippers and performance coaches (wearing blue bracelets) and recruiters and professionals from various companies who may be looking for new talent (wearing green bracelets).

"We look forward to a very successful event! To date we've had individuals from and formerly from over 50 companies R.S.V.P. and we know there are more to come as we get closer to April 14," said Jean Treadwell, volunteer organizer of PinkSlipParty.ca. "We recognized that we are all part of a business community that is at a historic low point and we wanted to provide an opportunity to network in a way that we can all feel good about, as professional colleagues coming together to meet new people and help others".

The event will be held Tuesday April 14th, 2009 from 6:00 to 9:00 pm at one of Toronto's finest restaurants Globe Bistro. Cost for attendees is $20 at the door plus cash bar, with all net proceeds going to Project Winter Survival, a volunteer organization that provides winter survival kits with basic necessities to homeless.
