As Australia continues to be ravaged by bushfires, Toronto restaurant Hemingway’s is doing their part to help raise money and awareness for the devastation.
Hemingway’s (142 Cumberland St.) is partnering with the Red Cross Australian Bushfire Relief Fund and Wildlife Victoria for Toronto Cares! Australian Bushfire Relief Fundraiser, a family-friendly Australia Day event to help the animals affected by the fires. There will be a silent auction, raffles and prize draws, a Sausage Sizzle, live music, and Australia Day/fundraiser T-shirts for sale, with all proceeds donated directly to the charities.
Prizes up for grabs include a pair of tickets to the Canadian Screen Awards Broadcast Gala, a signed Ed Sheeran record and complete discography, signed jerseys from Toronto Raptors and Maple Leafs players, and more.
The fundraiser takes place this Sunday, January 26, from 1 p.m. to 9 p.m. Admission is free, but the event is expected to reach capacity, so arrive early!
