Toronto, Canada –
Fashion Cares is one of the most incredible HIV/AIDS fund raisers in North America. Their impact on the fight against this terrible disease has been known for over 20 years.Since 1987, Fashion Cares has raised nearly $10 million dollars for the AIDS Committee of Toronto. As this annual event enters its third decade, expect plenty of new fashion, new faces and a fascinating new location. With more drama, more fabulous fashion and even more exceptional entertainment, this year’s gala promises to be bigger and better than ever.
“Canada’s largest AIDS fundraiser…has simply become one extraordinary event, imagine Halloween, a high school prom and New Year’s Eve all rolled into one!”
“Fashion Cares has evolved way beyond a fashion show — it’s more like an entertainment spectacle.”
Every year a new theme is selected (This year is PEEP). 2005’s theme was Hollywood Bollywood.This is an ad that ran in the show’s program. It tastefully merges the AIDS ribbon with a compassionate image of an Indian female.The quote in the ad reads:
“You must be the change you wish to see in the world”- Mahatma Ghandi
An appropriate sentiment that is even more true today.
