Earlier this year she was issued a visa to visit her father but was then denied entry and forced to return to Canada without seeing him.

The evening includes a silent auction, featuring items such as: Stratford Festival theatre tickets, Buddies in Bad Times season passes, Toronto Maple Leaf tickets, a complete set of signed novels by best-selling author Terry Fallis, and much more. You are invited to check out what items are available at   ai164auction.blogspot.ca.  There will also be free appetizers and a cash bar.
