A-Listers Gather for Paul Haggis’ APJ Festival Lunch | TIFF 2012

With TIFF in full swing, celebs have been spotted at every corner of downtown Toronto’s entertainment hub. It’s certainly the most glamorous time of the year for our fair city!

Last Saturday (Sept 8), Artists for Peace and Justice (APJ) held their ritzy 2012 festival lunch at the University of Toronto President’s Estate. Canadian filmmaker and APJ founder, Paul Haggis, runs the annual luncheon to raise funds, awareness, and support for the children of Haiti.

A-listers of every kind showed up for the event. Haggis himself co-hosted the day along with Jude Law, Trudie Styler and George Stroumoulopoulos. Guests were also lucky enough to enjoy performances by K’naan, Raine Maida (of Our Lady Peace), Chantal Kreviazuk and members of Arcade Fire.

The event successfully raised over $550,000 for the charity.
