FIRST LIGHT GALA FUNDRAISER 2019

The Canadian Centre for Victims of Torture (CCVT) is a non-profit organization that supports and aids survivors to overcome the lasting effects of torture and war. CCVT offers several programs including settlement and mental health services, children and youth programs, and language and skills training programs.

This year marks our 42nd anniversary and we will be honouring the occasion with a fundraising gala on Friday, November 15, 2019, at the Old Mill Inn in Toronto. Last year’s gala program included: Adrienne Arsenault, co-host of CBC’s The National, as Master of Ceremonies; MP Arif Virani as keynote speaker;  Olivia Chow as live auction host; jazz musician Donné Roberts; and DJ Carlos. The silent auction featured an acoustic guitar signed by Bob Dylan and a Beatles record signed by Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr. This year’s superstar line-up will be announced shortly!

Cocktails begin at 6:30 PM, followed by dinner and reception at 8:00 PM. Tickets are $125/individual ($60 Charitable Tax Receipt) or $1000/table ($350 Charitable Tax Receipt). Tickets on sale soon. Stay posted for details about dinner, auction items, and more!
