On Thursday, November 1, the Cosentino City Toronto Showroom welcomed over 100 guests as it transformed into an exclusive art gallery for the second CosArt event in support of the Children’s Breakfast Club. The charity works with over 20 community partners to provide a balanced, nutritious, and culturally appropriate breakfast program for low income children in some of Toronto’s most disadvantaged communities. A total of $635 in donations were collected throughout the evening with 100 per cent of the proceeds going directly towards the organization.
Cosentino showcased photography from Tony Koukos, a popular and accomplished photographer in the design world. Tony is known for his incredible world travel photography and his mixed medium approach including photo overlays on metal, glass, canvas and acrylic. A portion of sales from his photography displayed at the showroom will be donated to The Children’s Breakfast Club.

“It was an honour having my work exhibited at the Cosentino Toronto CosArt event in support of the Children’s Breakfast Club. The event gave guests the opportunity to not only enjoy an evening of artistic photography, but also raised awareness for a fantastic local organization dedicated to children in need. I was happy to be a part of it,” said Tony Koukos.
“On behalf of Cosentino, we look forward to hosting more of these charity related events in the showroom. It gives us a chance to give back to the community in a special way. We are thankful to have had the support from Tony and Stellar Art Services to make this edition of CosArt a reality,” said Suzy Margorian, Cosentino City Toronto Showroom Manager.
Tony’s pieces will be on display for general public until January 15 at the Cosentino Toronto City Centre showroom, located at 665 Caledonia Rd. For those interested in purchasing one of his pieces, please contact [email protected]
