Tickets are only $15 available on EventBrite or $20 at the door. Please join us for a night of fabulous Aboriginal musical artists and a worthy cause
This is a fundraising event by the Doctor’s Lions Club of Toronto and the Toronto Aboriginal Social Services Council. There are far too many Aboriginal women incarcerated in this country and far too many federally sentenced Aboriginal women. The Research Project supports the creation of a s.81 Healing Lodge in Toronto or the GTA where Aboriginal women can heal, grow and integrate back into the community. The partners involved are leaders in the Aboriginal community in Toronto, along with health care professionals that believe that the vision can become a reality.

December 18, 2014-8:30pm- BASEMENT REVUE-The Basement Revue breaks tradition to reveal a star-studded fundraiser to raise support for missing and murdered aboriginal women.
On December 18, 2014 at the Opera House in Toronto’s East End, Joseph Boyden, A Tribe Called Red, Jennifer Castle, Lee Maracle, Naomi Klein, Leanne Simpson, Tara Williamson, Shary Boyle, Emily Vey Duke, Cris Derkson, and special guests will come together to celebrate community.
In the Basement Revue’s seven-year history, we have always kept the line-up of these shows a secret, but we’ve decided to break tradition this year given the circumstances and what the objective of this show has become — an opportunity for the Canadian arts community to come together in solidarity and support.
