Viva Toronto to Ethiopia!



2013 Summit Sponsor

Join us for the 3rd People4Kids Gala at the ROM.

Wednesday, May 1st, 2013


It’s hands-across-the-ocean on Wednesday, May 1st, 2013 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM at the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM). For a third year the People4Kids Gala will take place, in the jewel-like setting of C-5 Restaurant in the ROM. As spring takes hold and with it our sense of optimism, you can watch the sun set, nestled atop the Michael Lee-Chin Crystal to the sounds of Donne Roberts.

It has been said that Robert’s “grooves are so buoyant, the harmonies so approachable, and the messages so universal that all you have to do is close your eyes and let yourself be moved.” Born in Madagascar, Roberts has immersed himself in the music of Russia, Japan, Egypt, Nigeria, North American Aboriginal peoples and Celtic traditions to blaze a remarkably distinctive musical trail.

Donne Robert’s musical reflection of Toronto’s diversity is sure to be appreciated by gala attendees which includes leaders from Toronto’s Ethiopian community, the OPS (notably the Ontario Ministry of Finance) along with many others who wish to contribute to improving the lives of some of the over one million AIDS-HIV orphans in Ethiopia.

We are inspired by the resilience of these children despite the unthinkable circumstances of their life journey. We look forward to another evening of friendship, goodwill and community with others who seek to enlarge the hopes and dreams of these children. We promise an evening that will lift your spirits!

PLEASE JOIN US . . . in friendship, in hope. . . you are needed!
