19th Annual Tribute Event

Thursday, June 13, 2013 - 22:30 to Friday, June 14, 2013 - 02:30

On June 13, 2013 at 6:30 p.m., the Barbra Schlifer Clinic’s 19th Annual Tribute fundraiser is the place to be!

This year the event is being held at the spectacular architectural gem, the Daniels Spectrum. This newly constructed venue is the talk of Toronto, and, with an expected attendance of over 500 Clinic supporters, it is the ideal place to accommodate the growth of this event.

We will confer the first-ever Spirit of Barbra Schlifer Award to a woman who burns with the passion for justice that Barbra herself represented. Our award recipient, Leilani Farha, one of Canada’s leading experts on, and advocates for, women’s social and economic rights, will speak about her international human rights legal work.

This year’s event will be emceed by the dynamic and entertaining lawyer and journalist, Paula Todd, and will feature our popular silent and live auctions, excellent food, beverages as well as entertainment.

Widely attended by the who’s who of Toronto, the Tribute event has become a key event for influential members of the legal community and their potential clients, corporations, banks, lawyers and individuals who care about their community.  The Tribute delivers a fun-filled night, with amazing items to bid on, all in support of a good cause.

We invite you to join us!

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
