CBC’s Glenn Gould Studio, 250 Front Street West, Toronto
Telling Tales Out of School, People for Education’s annual gala benefit, is both a celebration of public education and a fundraiser for People for Education. Over the years, Telling Tales has attracted many of Toronto’s political, community, and business leaders as audience members, as well as an amazing roster of Canadian authors, actors and musicians.
Every dollar raised at Telling Tales Out of School helps People for Education conduct and publicize its research, provide support to parents and school communities, and work to support all aspects of a strong education system including things like the arts in schools, and special education and English as a Second Language (ESL) programs.
Save the date! Telling Tales returns May 24, 2015.
