Every year we host a gala to raise money for our featured project.
Our 4th annual Gala, "Jazz Night" benefits For the Love of Children on Wednesday October 25th, 2017!
The mission of FTLOCS is to provide help, hope and support to disadvantaged children locally, regionally and internationally. FTLOCS currently funds 63 orphanages and schools in India, Nepal, the Phillipines, Peru, Colombia, Afghanistan, Haiti, Honduras, Egypt, Lebanon and Zambia. They have provided emergency disaster relief in Sri Lanka, Kashmir, Haiti Mexico, Peru and Sudan when the countries were affected by earthquakes, tsunamis and droughts.
Your generosity at this gala will help rebuild an orphanage in Nepal that was destroyed by the 2015 earthquake. Funds raised will also be used to support schools in Cambodia and Peru.
Our 3rd annual Gala, "Sweet Dreams" benefit Sleeping Children Around the World on Wednesday October 5th, 2016!
Our recipient charity is Sleeping Children Around The World. (SCAW). Sleeping Children Around the World distributes bedkits to children in a ratio of 50% girls and 50% boys, aged 6-12, from any culture or religion. The core philosophy of this unique charity is that every child should be able to get a good night's sleep.
The contents of a bedkit vary from country to country, but always contain bedding and a mosquito net, clothing and school supplies. SCAW was founded by Murray and Margaret Dryden in 1970. Since then, the organization has raised over $40 million to provide bedkits for over 1.4 million children in 34 countries.
We were honoured to have NHL hockey legend Dave Dryden, the current
chairman of SCAW, to be speaking at Emajjin's gala. Live entertainment
