I was one entertained recently at MARO Supper Club for the Africa Comes Alive fundraiser, where Canadian jewellery designers teamed up with Cascata Blu swimwear to raise awareness and funds for the A Hi Kulene Area Development Program (ADP) and World Vision Canada.

Jewellery designers donated and created African-inspired pieces that were auctioned off at the event – includi C’est Joli, Colette Harmon, J. Rox, Jewellery by Karen, Monikque Jewellery, Melissa Clemente Designs, Rita Tesolin, Sylvia Brade, and Tracy Borlase. Each individual piece will be up for grabs during the live auction directly following the fashion show with all proceeds raised to be donated to the cause.
