Toronto, ON – As a way to celebrate the holiday season and music culture in Toronto, the annual Kardi Christmas Party which has become one of Canada’s premiere holiday charity events is back for it’s 22nd Anniversary edition on December 15th at CODA (794 Bathurst Street West).
With his infectious energy and philanthropic spirit, award-winning rapper, Canada’s Got Talent (TV) judge, and Global A&R at Def Jam Records, Kardinal Offishall has had a plethora of popular music and entertainment figures support the annual event, and the number and breadth of influential global superstars who have attended as both guests and donors includes Jay-Z, Russell Peters, Dave Chappelle, PK Subban, Vince Carter, Sean Paul, Nelly Furtado, Estelle, Chris Bosh, Michael “Pinball” Clemons, Just Blaze (Beyonce, Drake), and many many others.
This year’s edition is open to the public, but as a thank you gesture for their incredible work during the pandemic, this year the admission is FREE for nurses and healthcare professionals (while tickets last). This annual party is about GIVING BACK and Kardinal has worked with different recipients of this fundraising initiative over the years, including the Sick Kids Hospital, The Breast Cancer Society of Canada, and 30-elephants.com.
Over the past eight years, Kardinal has been dedicating himself to helping send kids from various Toronto neighbourhoods to various continents and countries such as Africa, Japan, India (Philippines for 2023). 30-Elephants.com, an organization started by his wife, has created these life changing voyages for kids aged 12-19 years old, and on these transformative trips, Toronto area youth have had the opportunity to participate in building schools, participating in health clinics, learning different languages, and becoming fully immersed in leadership training and exercises that allow for these life-altering experiences to have a ripple affect on their own communities back home.
