“Come From Away’s” fundraising initiative Come From Kindness is hosting a special event in support of Daffodil Place.

One Night Stand will feature members of the cast and band as well as special guest Allan Hawco.

The event is happening July 9 at Lula Lounge in Toronto.

Tickets are $150 and include a three-course dinner plus a chance to get up close with the members of “Come From Away.”

The fundraiser also includes a silent and live auction.

Auction items include a two-night stay at the Fogo Island Inn (including all meals and the Come From Away itinerary), a one-of-a-kind “Come From Away” guitar donated by Godin, and tickets and a backstage tour to both the Broadway and Toronto productions of “Come From Away.”

All proceeds from the event go to Daffodil Place in St. John’s, a 24-room facility operated by the Canadian Cancer Society in this province.

Daffodil Place provides affordable accommodations for people with cancer and their caregivers who must travel to the city for cancer care.

Included with a stay at Daffodil Place is three hot meals plus snacks daily, transportation to and from appointments, entertainment in the evening, and emotional and practical support.
