We’re fundraising to build the first Family Shelter for Abused Men and Children in Toronto
Here’s a great opportunity to be a part of this historic moment, while enjoying a dinner with friends. We are honoured to have Dr. Don Wright join us on Friday, November 10th at 7:30 PM for a special fundraiser at the beautiful Leslie Jones restaurant at 1182 Queen St. E., Toronto.
