Reaching for the Stars Children’s Foundation was built on the grassroots event ‘Reaching for the Stars’ which held it’s inaugural event in Toronto on November 13th, 2014. We are committed to changing the trajectory of children lives. The programs we support are aimed at providing a holistic approach to caring for children in need. From a simple idea in 2013, a seed was sown.
The 7th Annual Reaching for the Stars event’s net proceeds will be dedicated to children in need.
Our commitment is to continue to support our children in Vari (for the 6th year), in Thessaloniki (5th year), in Crete (2nd year) and the Baby Centre (4th year). Our goal is to raise $100,000 to cover the costs of the children, SOS mothers, household, clothing, food, therapy, as well as the extra curricular activities of the children.
Our goal is a greater one with the addition of our new family and we can do it with YOUR help.
Join us on November 14th, 2019 at the Grand Luxe Event Boutique at 3125 Bayview Avenue, as we continue to walk with our children.

Peter Minaki is BACK to create a savoury, delicious menu taking Greek food to another level!
Peter is one of Canada’s finest Toronto based Greek food experts and often referred to as “Kalofagas”, which is Greek for “gourmand.”
Peter currently hosts and cooks for the “Kalofagas Greek Supper Club” – these monthly supper clubs are casual and intimate gatherings that feature regional Greek food and wines. The supper club has proved to be popular with both Greeks and people who just want to be Greek for a night! Peter teaches Greek cooking classes, does private catering and pop-ups at venues around Toronto such as the Toronto Underground Market, Toronto Harbourfront and local restaurants.
The one and only, Peter Minaki – Kalofagas – Greek Food & Beyond – has become a pillar of our annual Reaching for the Stars event. Peter created the menu for the inaugural event in 2014, has been a avid supporter and has taken the time to visit the children in Greece that we support. He is part of our family and we are happy to share that he will once again create a phenomenal menu at the 6th Annual Reaching for the Stars. His passion to share his gift of cooking, love for Greece and commitment to this cause exemplify PHILOTIMO. We are humbled to have him back!
