The fundraiser will feature a short video presentation and updates of on the ground relief efforts. Exciting prizes, courtesy of GK heroes and warriors, await raffle and silent auction winners. More raffle tickets and auction bids mean increased chances of winning and more help going to typhoon ‘Pablo’ victims, Pacis added.

To complement local efforts in Toronto GK Canada is making arrangements for live streaming of the event over Skype so those outside Toronto and overseas can make their donations through the website.
