On March 5, 2009, the Toronto Area Alumnae Panhellenic and Sororities at U of T held the spring semester edition of the Charity Denim Sale.  Held at the Medical Sciences Building at the University of Toronto, the event sold premium denim at 50% off its regular retail price.  Brands available at the sale included Seven for All Mankind, Joe’s and Citizens.  Proceeds to the sales of the jeans went to A Way Out, a community development initiative developed by a University of Toronto alumna.  A Way Out is a Canadian-Namibian partnership which assists young Namibian women who are high risk for HIV/AIDS through a education, empowerment and economic independence.
