Our dear volunteer, Sinclair Russell, is celebrating a milestone year on Oct 5th and we would like to say Bravo! Let’s salute his talent and spirit of FUN and FUNDraising by raising a glass to his many years of  involvement in Toronto Charity and Society Event Style.*  What better way than a VIP event at Cirque Du Soleil!  Click here to see your VIP invitation which includes a tax receipt as well as parking, a red carpet reception with sipping and supping, best seats in the house and a lovely gift-to-go!

Over DAREarts’ 20 years of empowering at-risk kids, Sinclair has been our dedicated Design Guru making our Leadership Awards and other events truly glorious!  But he went even further to give back: in 2011 Sinclair joined our team of teachers and artist-educators and headed to Webequie First Nation to work with Indigenous youths as they designed and sewed their own buck skin vests.

Professionally, his talents have contributed to Simpsons, Eatons, Estee Lauder, Fairweather / Dylex, Seven Continents, Display Arts of Toronto, Robert Gage Salon, Museum Tavern, many other retailers and publications. His talents took him abroad for 20 years working globally that won him awards and acclaim. He now lives in Minden, ON where he devotes his time and talents to many fortunate local efforts.

*Some of his lucky collaborators:
Peter Munk Cardiac Centre, Mt Sinai Hospital, DAREarts, WestPark Health, The Yonge Street Mission, Baycrest, The Griffin Trust, Canadian Opera Company, National Ballet School, Stratford Festival, Best Buddies, PetSOS,  The Fashion Group, The Brazilian Ball (x 12), and many society hosts, fine friends and his loving family members.
