The Fun Stuff

The three-course rubber chicken dinners. The auctions and raffles. The speeches. These are the ingredients of many a charity event, and they have stood the test of time. But times change and so have we, it is time to shake things up. The last thing a fundraiser needs is a guest who is bored, or annoyed, or doesn’t show up at all.


This year’s Variety Heart Gala promises to be anything but boring, with a cocktail style reception, food stations prepared by one of Toronto’s top catering companies, live entertainment and more! These are some of the things we are doing to ensure you have a fun night out, all while supporting a worthy cause.

Special Guest Performance by Electric Violinist


Dr. Draw is known as the first violinist to venture from rock and classical into electronic music culture. His style is difficult to describe as his history with music and culture spans an eccentric lifetime. From playing for royalty in Prague to creating near chaos at the Toronto Beaches Jazz Festival to playing luxury brand events like Chloé and Dom Pérignon, Dr. Draw inspires kudos wherever he plays. Lately, his reputation is growing eastward. Performances have included playing in Singapore, Taiwan, Sri Lanka, and a spate of Louis Vuitton events in Hong Kong, Malaysia, and South Korea.
