MONEY RAISED: $2248.00
On October 31st, 2015, U N I V E R S E O F Á L I Presented it's 1st Annual Halloween Charity Event, held at the historic and exclusive Armour Heights Officers Mess. We were able to raise $2248, for Animal Justice Canada, through amazing Silent Auction items donated by such organizations as Cirque du Soleil, Toronto Blue Jays, Forces Families Foundation, and WestJet. Guests adorned their finest grabs, drank cheap booze, and danced the night away to the smooth jazz infusions only a Speakeasy can provide.
Animal Justice Canada (animaljustice.ca), a Canadian Registered Charity (#80399 7212 RR0001) dedicated to advancing public knowledge of animal practises and preventing the abuse and killing of animals through the enforcement of existing laws. Animal Justice Canada Legislative Fund is a federally incorporated not-for-profit dedicated to advocating of the humane treatment of animals.
Feature Guest Speaker, Kimberly Carroll, a body/mind/spirit coach, television personality, and avid animal rights advocate has been transforming lives around the world. And as an animal advocate, Kimberly was one of the founders of Mercy For Animals Canada and now works with Animal Justice.
We were honoured to have Kimberly join our event. Her inspirational Guests learning that Canada has the worst animal laws in the western world and of one case in particular, that went to the Canadian Supreme Court, left people in shock as to what animals face here in Canada.
International Burlesque Performer, Teacher, and Producer Agatha Frisky graced Guests with her vintage glamour and unparalleled stage presence. Born in Australia, forged in the fires of North America, and now residing in Glasgow, she was seen performing with her partner in crime, The Great Gadso, doing an old-school Charleston and a sultry and dramatic solo fan dance. See video below.
