Wow what a beautiful Sunday afternoon here in Toronto : Friday nights “back to the 80’s” charity fundraiser was an absolute success. Derooted studios are ecstatic and proud to be a part of this initiative. Who knew an 80’s theme was just what the doctor ordered. We raised a whopping $150,000 to build the first project, the Artbound Art School in Kenya, Africa. Truly incredible! No seriously. It was off the proverbial hook.
