Fashion Cares 2012 in September

#Toronto will bask in the glow of Glitter and Light featuring Elton John during the @ACToronto MAC Viva 25 Year Silver Anniversary Fashion Cares which takes place September 9 at the Sony Centre for Performing Arts. After a couple of years between the Fashion Cares events it's good to see the celebration and the money raised goes to Canadian HIV/AIDs foundations nationwide distributed through the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT) and the Elton John AIDS Foundaton (EJAF).

The previous show was the 2008 Fashion sCares event with headliners Dame Shirley Bassey and Katy Perry! "Opening comments from Honorary Chair Jeanne Beker and Chair Michael King (above with Katy) were followed by the celebrity hosts - Canada's own David Furnish (below, with Dame Shirley) and International Supermodel Yasmin Warsame. David Furnish being an honoured film director and producer, a champion of HIV/AIDS fundraising and awareness and the partner of Iconic pop culture artist Elton John." Read more:
