Party For Hope on June 10th

The Forever Chai Foundation of Canada’s Young Philanthropist Committee invites you to the Luxy Nite Club in Vaughan on Sunday, June 10th at 7:30 for an incredible evening filled with drinks, music, auctions, and prizes to support Israel’s Shabtai Levi Home.

The Shabtai Levi Home in Haifa originally opened in 1945 as a day care center for children of Jewish Brigade soldiers who had fought in Europe. Today, it is an emergency/residential care centre for children ages 3-7 that have been physically or emotionally abused. The Shabtai Home Levi also features a Mother/Child Residential Unit that provides in-home rehabilitation for malfunctioning mothers and their young children.

The Forever Chai Foundation of Canada (FCFC) is a non-profit organization whose primary aim is to raise funds for the Shabtai Levi Home. This weekend, they are hosting a fun-filled fundraiser to help in this important mission.

The fundraiser, entitled ‘A Night of Hope’ will not only feature cocktails, music, auctions, and prizes, but also marks the premiere of Frank Lozano’s documentary ‘About Shabtai Levi’, chronicling the incredible work the Shabtai Levi Home has done thus far.

‘A Night of Hope’ is $50 per ticket with all proceeds going towards the Shabtai Levi Home. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit www.4everchai.com or call 416-695-8885.
