ONEXONE is grateful to Mahsa Izadpanah and her friends and coworkers from Scotiabank for organizing and making the Pour Tous les Enfants fundraiser such a success.
Mahsa was so moved by the plight of the people in Haiti, after the 2010 earthquake, that she wanted to hold a charitable event that would benefit the Haitian people. She found the perfect match in the ONEXONE pediatric wing in the Mirebalais Hospital in Haiti. Mahsa and her friends organized a phenomenal sold-out event, held at the Edward Day Gallery on February 26th, which featured live music, a silent auction of many beautiful artworks, and a raffle.
The event itself raised $26,188 with an additional $5,000 provided by Scotiabank Bright Futures program. Mahsa and her team are also eligible for an additional prize for best charitable event – we wish them luck!
