Hylton House Designs to be Featured at the Healing Hope Brunch

some text

Hylton House carries show stopping designer originals that will remain in a lady’s closet for a life time. Their fashions are for the woman who wants to be-or is-more than average. The Hylton House collection evolved from personal fashions constructed by the founder and Director of Fashion, Sharon Wickham-Hylton, a woman who is more than average! Sharon regularly wore her original designs out to events. That’s where the compliments began, which were quickly followed by the requests for her to create incredible outfits for others and styling for film and television.

Ms. Hylton uses a wide range of fabrics imported from across the border and from other continents. Tasteful chiffons, stretch fibres, bold colours and metallic-the wide range appeals to one’s imagination with a classical-yet-modern flavour that works extremely well together.

Embracing the diversity in woman of all shapes and sizes, ethnic backgrounds and personalities, Hylton House will wow us in the fashion show for the Healing Hope Fundraising Brunch.

Music by Sharon Dongen at the Healing Hope Brunch

some text

Sharon Dongen has had a dynamic professional career working in the IT corporate world for over 32 years. She served as a Supervisor of Information Technology for the Call Centre and Computer Operations at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre for over 27 years.

Sharon is now retired from the stressful world of the corporate world. The second half of her life has now begun. She now focuses on the things she truly loves; her family, her home, her garden, her music and helping those in need.

Sharon has never taken guitar lesson. She is a self- taught musician who learnt how to play by simply toying around with the only item she took with her when she migrated from Jamaica in 1976. Her guitar!

Sharon will be entertaining us with her guitar and vocals at the Healing Hope Fundraising Brunch.

Scarborough Mirror Write Up – Healing Hope Brunch

Cancer diagnosis inspires actress to create fundraising event for Rouge Valley
some text

Letna Allen-Rowe felt fear the day she was diagnosed with breast cancer, Dec. 16, 2011.

“I was torn apart that day,” she said.

But Allen-Rowe found courage, and having successfully undergone a double mastectomy and breast reconstruction at the Centenary campus of the Rouge Valley Health System in Scarborough, she wants to help the hospital that saved her life, she said.

Inspiration gave her the Healing Hope Fundraising Brunch, next Sunday April 7, as a way to do it.

An actress and singer – she’s known for appearing in the play I Need to Know My Father in venues around Toronto – Allen-Rowe will be joined at Saints Peter and Paul Banquet Hall on Milner Avenue by other entertainers including gospel singer Donett Thompson-Hall, and Dave “Comfort” Vassell, a romantic reggae balladeer.

The afternoon also features a fashion show by Stacy-Ann Buchanan Productions and Rouge Valley’s Dr. Tracey Asano and Dr. James Chiarotto will speak.

It was in Asano’s office, Allen-Rowe said, that she decided on a benefit luncheon whose proceeds will go to the Rouge Valley Centenary Oncology Program.

“This is one way I get to pay back,” said Allen-Rowe, who was recuperating from her latest surgery, which she had on March 7, and thinks the brunch will help her own process of healing.

It’s not just medical equipment the $50-per-person event can buy, she said. The oncology lounge, for example, needs some new chairs.

One in three Canadian families will be touched by cancer one way or another. Allen-Rowe’s mother died of cervical cancer, and her husband has had kidney cancer.

But though many people with cancer hide their diagnosis “under a bushel” she hasn’t.

“Everywhere I go, I talk about it,” said Allen-Rowe. “It’s not a death sentence. I’m fabulous as I am, and I’m not going anywhere.”

A Jamaican-Canadian, she said she hopes to see people of every ethnic background at the benefit “because cancer is no respecter of persons. It’s everybody’s disease, not just mine.”

Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketgateway.com online, in person at Rouge Valley Health System Foundation’s Centenary office on Ellesmere Road, or by calling 416-281-7342. More information is on Allen-Rowe’s website, www.MsLetna.com

Dave “Comfort” Vassell to Serenade Us at the Healing Hope Fundraiser

some text

With an appetite for good music and a stomach for fun, Comfort, (aka) Dave C Vassell, combines his childhood fantasy of fun with an adult’s perspective of relaxation and peace of mind.

He states, ‟Music is a gift from God above and should not be taken lightly or misused. I truly believe musicians are like shepherds leading the Fathers children. A well-written piece of music can influence millions of God’s children. My greatest desire will be to see people of all race and nations stand up hand in hand and rejoice together through the universal language – MUSIC”.

With a range of musical exposure, which spans from Reggae, R&B, Ska, Gospel and Soul, Comfort has performed at home and abroad as the lead singer for Toronto’s Ska sensational band, The Arsenals.

Comfort has opened the stage for the likes of Third World, Toots and the Matals, Freddy McGreggor,Morgan Heritage, Shaggy, Bounty Killa, Vybes Cartel Anthony B, Wayne Wonder, Steve Knight, Len Hammond, Buju Banton, General Trees, Brigadier Jerry, Peaches and Herb, the Manhattans, K-OS, Mos Def, Divine Earth Essence, Dawn Silva and Jill Scott.

Comfort soothes his audiences with his sensual and commanding voice that seems to suggest, “This is only the beginning”. Be sure to get your ticket for the Healing Hope fundraiser Brunch, happening April 7th, to vibe to his smooth tunes.
