The runaway show that stood out from the others was the annual “Men’s Fashion 4 Hope” celebrity fashion show. TOM* started this special event as a charitable initiative to raise funds for the Kol Hope Foundation for Children.

All proceeds are donated to the Hospital for Sick Children (SickKids) Kol Hope Fund to help improve the condition and lives of children with congenital diseases.  The foundation is named after Kol, who was born with Trisomy 13, a fatal genetic syndrome. He was severely disabled, required life support and 24 hour care, was fed by a g-tube and was unable to walk or talk. He passed away on October 9th, 2011, and left behind an incredible legacy of love, charity and hope. Kol Hope is proud to have SickKids, Easter Seals and World Vision as its Canadian beneficiaries.
