A Benefit Event For Our Friends In Japan

Led by Brionie Garnham and Charlotte Waslyowich of Parlour Salon, the Toronto community has come together to support efforts going to Japan, through the Red Cross. On April 3, 2011, 7:30PM at The Great Hall (1087 Queen Street West), Brionie and Charlotte are hosting A Benefit for Japan, with a bake sale, a silent auction including numerous concert, clothing, film festival and restaurant gift packages and certificates, and a four band line-up, including a surprise headliner.
The absolute shock of the recent earthquake and tsunami in Japan has been felt worldwide. The whopping 9.0 magnitude earthquake that hit Japan on March 11 which triggered a tsunami was felt across the Pacific coastline - this tragedy's death toll is in the thousands and still climbing. Preceding that on February 11, a 6.3 magnitude earthquake rocked Christchurch, New Zealand with over 400 left dead. These tragedies have left people wondering how they can help.
Here is an opportunity to spend an evening supporting the Red Cross, and their efforts to extend a hand of human compassion and generosity to those affected by the devastating events that recently occurred along the pacific. All are cordially invited to come out and support The Red Cross together at The Great Hall - http://www.thegreathall.ca - on Sunday, April 3rd at 7:30PM.

The evenings event will include a bake sale by the mostly vegan Muffin Yard, a silent auction and tons of raffles, including donated gifts from: Los Valentinas, Cry Wolf Clothing, The Drake Hotel, Dean Davidson, Ashley Winnington-ball, Parlour Salon, Cineplex Theatre Passes, Vans Warped Tour VIP package, Embrace Presents Ticket Pack, Steam Whistle VIP Tour, Collective Concerts, Hot Docs Canadian International Documentary Festival passes, imagineNATIVE Film + Media Arts Festival passes, various contributions from musicians across North America that include t-shirts, event tickets, CD's, posters, etc.. as well as crafts and art from local artists, designers and jewelers, and more!
