TORONTO, Sept. 6, 2013 /CNW/ - World renowned "Orphan Doctor" and founder of Worldwide Orphans Foundation, Dr. Jane Aronson will be in Toronto on September 9 and 10, 2013 for the Worldwide Orphans (WWO) Foundation Canada fourth annual Charity Golf Classic on Tuesday, September 10, 2013 at Greystone Golf Club.
This annual event raises funds to support WWO's early intervention programs in Bulgaria and Haiti. Through toy libraries, one-to-one caregiver programs, and sport, art, and camp programs, WWO works to ensure that orphaned and at-risk children can have a happy, healthy childhood in spite of their circumstances. The event has raised over $400,000 over the last three years through the generosity of corporate and individual supporters.
In last week's Huffington Post, Dr. Aronson wrote about the plight of the world's 143 million orphans: "They are victims of poverty, prejudice and human chaos from conflict, war, disaster and disease. I ask that we all include orphans, living without parental care, in our struggle for social justice. They are surely worthy of our marches, our raised up voices, our outraged pleas for the victims of human indecencies."
For a fourth consecutive year, Toronto law firm Thornton Grout Finnigan LLP and RBC Investor Services are the main sponsors or the event. This year's Silver sponsors include, Bank of Montreal, L&T Infotech, Tata Consulting, and Deloitte. Bronze sponsors include, Duff & Phelps LLP, Delphi Corp, iGate, CGI, Borden Ladner Gervais, FundSERV, KPMG, Michael Page, and Hicks Morely.
Dr. Jane Aronson can be available for interview between 4:00pm and 7:00pm on September 9, 2013 about the work of Worldwide Orphans or her recently released book, Carried in our Hearts: Creating Families Across Continents. Please contact John Finnigan at 416-304-0558 to book.
