One X One Gala Expands to Calgary and San Francisco
April 30, 2008
The One X One fund-raising gala—known in Toronto for its celebrity guest list and host Matt Damon—will debut in Calgary on June 14 and in San Francisco in the fall, the charity's founder, Joelle Berdugo Adler, announced Monday. Damon's longtime friend Ben Affleck will host the festivities in Calgary (he talked about his upcoming gig to The Globe and Mail) at the Commonwealth Hall and Conference Centre, where three Canadians will be honoured for their work with disadvantaged children. Damon will return as host for the fourth annual Toronto One X One gala on September 8 at a to-be-determined venue.
