Jane Seymour attending “Escape to España!” event on November 4th
for The Darling Home for Kids
Toronto, Ontario – Jane Seymour is a celebrated and accomplished actress, artist, author and
humanitarian who is also passionate about fundraising to help children in need. As such, with the
generous support of Art Trax Gallery, Jane will be a special guest at an upcoming charity event “Escape to España!”
“Escape to España!” is the theme for The Darling Home for Kids 2010 holiday event (previously
known as the Comfort & Joy Gala) which is one of Toronto’s premier events. This year’s chic
fundraiser promises to deliver a Spanish flare as guests escape and explore the diversity of Spain’s
culture and cuisine. All proceeds from the event will benefit The Darling Home for Kids, a charity
located in Milton that provides support to medically complex children. “Escape to España!” takes
place on Thursday, November 4th, at Liberty Grand, Exhibition Place, Toronto.
The Darling Home for Kids provides care and support to families who have children who are
medically fragile and/or technology dependent. The Home services children from infancy to age 18
across Ontario; supporting a child from their initial diagnosis and respite services, through to
palliative and end-of-life care, when needed.
In addition to their core services, the Home also offers a day program and a number of therapeutic
programs which help the children optimize their well-being such as recreation and multi-sensory
therapy to name a few, as well as a music therapy program to which all proceeds from the “Escape
to España!” jewellery raffle ticket sales will be allocated.
Karen Chow, the Chair of the “Escape to España!” event and the Vice Chairperson of the Board of
Directors for The Darling Home for Kids says, “We are absolutely thrilled to have Jane Seymour join
us at this important event to help increase awareness and raise funds to support the vital programs
offered at The Darling Home for Kids”. With the funds raised, The Darling Home for Kids can
continue to be an oasis of comfort and joy for the many children and families who benefit from its
services each year.
Media in attendance that evening will have an opportunity to interview Jane Seymour and take
photographs at 6:15 p.m.
