Raising money for the Philippines and other weekend events

Fundraisers taking place this weekend raise money for the continuing relief efforts in the typhoon ravaged Philippines -- just one of the many events worth checking out this weekend.

Artists United in Support of the Philippines

Movember: The Shave Off
Nov 30 (8 PM)
Creatures Creating (822 Dundas Street W)

One of a Kind Show and Sale
Nov 28 to Dec 8
Direct Energy Centre

Premiering at Toronto's Queen Elizabeth Building in December 1975, the "craft show" was the brainchild of Steven Levy, Martin Rumack and June Bibby. June (herself an artisan) couldn't find a place to sell her work before Christmas, so the three friends decided to create their own holiday shopping venue.

For information on this year's vendors, check out the One of a Kind Show and Sale website.
