Toronto Fundraiser for Greece’s Children in Need

Children’s foundation Reaching for the Stars is organizing an event whose net proceeds will be donated solely to children in need in Greece.

The organizers say that their commitment is to continue to support our children in Vari (for the 5th year), in Thessaloniki (4th year) and the Baby Centre (4th year).

They also announced that they have adopted a new SOS family in Crete.

The goal of the event is to raise $100,000 to donate toward the needs of the children and SOS mothers, including clothing, food, and therapy, as well as the extracurricular activities of the children.

The event will be held on November 15th at the Grand Luxe Event Boutique at 3125 Bayview Avenue.

Among those participating are Dr. Draw, the first violinist to venture from rock and classical into electronic music culture, and Peter Minaki, one of Canada’s finest Toronto-based Greek food experts, often referred to as “Kalofagas”, which is Greek for “gourmand.”

The initiative is supported by the former captain of the Greek national football team Giorgos Karagounis who made an appeal through Facebook to galvanize support and donations (see video below):
