K2K is pleased to announce that our next Music and Fashion Fundraising event

“Kids T.O. Kids – Making Life Beautiful”*

will take place at Toronto Grand Event Centre on Sunday, 11 June 2023.

Our audience will enjoy the show while having a delicious sit-down, full-course meal in a beautiful venue that accommodates up to 700 guests.

If you are a designer, photographer/videographer, Hair/Make Up artist, or an event planner who is also passionate about giving back, we would love to hear from you. Your expertise and generosity is much appreciated. kidstokids.runwayofhope@gmail.com

At this time, we also would love to hear from male-presenting teens/tweens who would like to join our K2K family on the runway. Please reach out to us. kidstokids.runwayofhope@gmail.com

All proceeds will go towards the playground builds for Million Dollar Smiles.

K2K is 100% run by unpaid volunteers. Our members are young professional artists and performers of Toronto, aged 4-18, who are passionate about giving back to the community.

More than 60 models will be strutting down the runway, dressed by many designers and boutiques, who have the same vision as ours, and generally volunteer their time and talents to be a part of our show. Please visit the Designers page for more information. The runway is almost twice as long as our 2019 show, ensuring that all audience will have a nice view of every performance on the stage/runway.

All proceeds from this event will go towards the playground builds which we sponsor through Million Dollar Smiles (MDS). To date, MDS has built more than 500 playgrounds for children and families facing special needs or the diagnosis of a serious illness. K2K was able to raise enough funds at our last event to build 3 playgrounds, and with your support and generosity, we hope to be able to build more.

Show Highlights

This year’s event will be hosted by the incredible Marny Florence (https://www.marnyflorence.com), who is one of Toronto’s most vibrant personalities known around the city for her infectious energy and exciting dance moves. We are very grateful to Marny for donating her time to help bring life to our event.

Our performers and entertainers include Julia Middleton (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBslzEv4Ag52XFdERZ7ym7w) who as a tween wrote “Castle In The Air” for MDS, and performed live at our fundraising event, an organetto prodigy Bruno Monardo (https://instagram.com/bruno_monardo), classical singer Lucas Kalechstein (https://instagram.com/kalechstein_lucas_sings), and ‘electrifying’ electric guitarist Pierre Drivas (https://instagram.com/pierre_on_set).

We are very grateful to all our designers, runway coaches, hair and makeup artists, photographers and videographers, all of whom donate their time and expertise to help us with our event. We will not be able to realize this event without their support.

Currently, we are looking for sponsors and donors to help us with the cost of the event. We greatly appreciate your generosity, and would appreciate an opportunity to meet with you and tell you more about our organization and the sponsorship packages.

This page will be updated regularly. We hope you will come back and visit us again.
