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!

On Wednesday, May 2nd an arc of hope will stretch from an orphanage in Ethiopia to the ROM as cherry trees blossom in Toronto. For a second year the People4Kids Gala takes place in the jewel-like setting of C-5 restaurant in the ROM.

MUSIC, FOOD, ART

Within this elegant venue with its panoramic view, the sun will set to the music of Waleed Abdulhamid hailed as “one of the most talented and exciting musicians working in Toronto today”. His brand of jazz is a nuanced blend of global influences and African roots punctuated by striking vocals and innovative and traditional percussion rhythms. Party fare will be the creation of newcomer to C-5, Celebrity Chef Corbin Tomaszeki of “Dinner Party Wars” and Restaurant Makeover” fame. While you munch and mingle you can shop our expanded Silent Auction which will include “getaway” certificates and paintings from artists represented by the Hollander York Gallery.

COMMUNITY

Waleed Abdulhamid’s work with musicians from all corners of the planet reflects Toronto’s diversity, as will our gala guest list which includes leaders from Toronto’s Ethiopian community, the Ontario Public Service, notably the 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.  It doesn’t take much to make a dream come true for one of these children.  We are inspired by their resilience in spite of the unthinkable circumstances of their life journey.  The simple dreams of these vulnerable children are firmly rooted in basic needs of food, clothing, shelter and education.

ORPHAN SPONSORSHIP

Leaders in Toronto’s Ethiopian community have established a unique orphan sponsorship opportunity by forging cost-effective, high-impact links between orphans and Canadians. We look forward to an evening of friendship and goodwill accompanied by a sense of community with others who seek to enlarge the hopes and dreams of these resilient, young souls. We promise an evening that will lift your spirits!
