Well known for his role as Appa in the CBC hit, Kim’s Convenience, Paul won Best Actor in Comedy at Canadian Screen Awards in 2017, and 2018. Without question, Paul will bring a sense of humour to the night’s event, along with his personal and unique appreciation for the cause, the Clinic, and the work we do to help women who have experienced gender-based violence. Paul Sun-Hyung Lee is an award-winning actor, writer, comedian and dad. Winner of two consecutive Canadian Screen Awards for Best Actor in a Continuing Leading Comedic Role, the Toronto Theatre Critics Award for Best Actor, and nominated for both ACTRA and Dora Mavor Moore Awards for Outstanding Performance, Paul continues to pursue excellence both onstage and onscreen.

As part of our fundraising efforts, the Barbra Schlifer Clinic holds a signature fundraising event. Hosted by Blakes, the Annual Tribute is a truly inspiring evening that brings together an influential and diverse collection of people determined to inspire change.  

To order your tickets, please click here, or call 416-323-9149 ext 240.

The Annual Tribute represents many things: the coming together of a tight-knit community to honour a woman whose life was ended by violence; the incredible commitment of our sponsors, donors and guests who make the evening a triumphant success; the tireless devotion of staff whose work focuses on what Barbra had once dreamed of doing herself; and, the bravery of women whose lives have been interrupted by violence.

This year’s Annual Tribute will take place on Thursday, June 7 at Daniels Spectrum.  We hope to exceed last year’s fundraising goal and raise $250,000 in support of women, and their children, who have experienced violence.   

Curious why raising this amount is so important?  Please read Amanda Dale’s opinion piece to learn more about the crisis facing organizations, like the Barbra Schlifer Clinic, within the service sector who still feel the effect of the 1993 Social Contract.
