Canada’s Walk of Fame hosted its Music Under the City Stars Fundraiser, raising $350,000 while bringing together great Canadian artists and their hits. The CWF Gala was presented by Walter and Maria Schneider, Jeffrey Latimer Entertainment and Liberty Entertainment Group who gathered some of Canada’s most talented singer-songwriters and music icons alongside Toronto’s philanthropic community for an evening of fundraising and performances at the majestic castle in the city, Casa Loma.

 


Surrounded by Casa Loma’s spectacular gardens at sunset, the event kicked off with a red carpet reception, followed by an intimate dinner and unforgettable night of celebration and performances of Canadian hit songs. Music Under the Stars supports the creation of new national programs for emerging talent.
