On Sunday, September 12th, notable artists and influencers came together to raise an impressive $1.25 million at the annual Bovet 1822 Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) Festival Fair presented at Casa Loma. The non-profit organization aims to serve the less fortunate communities in Haiti, giving children proper education, healthcare and dignity through the arts.
The event was co-hosted by a star-studded team, including APJ founder and Oscar-winning director and screenwriter Paul Haggis, Jeremy Renner, Jim Belushi and Maria Bello, to name a few. Sean Penn received the second annual Peace and Justice award and prompted everyone in attendance to donate at least $1000.
A live auction throughout the evening landed bidders experiences such as a date with Jeremy Renner and a private concert by singer-songwriter Nelly Furtado. To top off the night, guests enjoyed music by American singer-songwriter Arum Rae and It’s Your Shot contest winner Kayla Diamond.
