The ceremony, which raises money for domestic and global charities, will take place on September 8 at the Maple Leaf Gardens in Toronto. ONEXONE is a non-profit organization that supports children in Canada and around the world, and has raised over $5 million to fight child poverty. Last year’s fundraiser netted a massive $3.2 million for the foundation, with more than $7 million being raised since the first awards ceremony in 2005.
Earlier this year, the foundation held its inaugural benefit gala in Calgary, hosted by Ben Affleck. The organization now plans to expand to the US, with its first benefit gala there to be held in San Francisco on October 23.
The recipients of this year’s Difference Awards are yet to be named, but are guaranteed to be people who have dedicated their lives to fighting child poverty and suffering around the world.
