Elton John will be headlining Fashion Cares this September!
The music legend has partnered with AIDS Committee of Toronto for the event, which is chaired by Elton's husband David Furnish, and will perform to promote the support and awareness of HIV/AIDS treatment and research.
Elton says of his involvement:
I consider myself an honorary Canadian, and I’m thrilled to be able to contribute to vital programs across Canada through this partnership. For both my foundation and ACT, Fashion Cares 25 provides an opportunity to pay tribute to those we have lost and to send an important message: HIV and AIDS are still prevalent both in Canada and throughout the world. I’m very happy about that and looking forward to it.
So far they've raised nearly $12 million for HIV/AIDS programs and with Elton's help we're sure the number will only increase!
