We’re extremely excited to have an Hollywood actor at the centre! His attendance will only add to what is going to be a great day. We love holding events that bring the community together and this charity sparathon is no different. We hope that Winston’s presence will generate more buzz and encourage people to donate to such a worthy cause.
