Rush Dinner raises $40,000 for Amani Home for Street Kids in Moshi, Tanzania
Both Geddy Lee and Alex Lifeson attended a charity dinner event in early October which benefited the Amani Home for Street Kids in Moshi, Tanzania via the Grapes of Humanity Charity organization of Canada.

From the story:
Joe Canavan, a great supporter of Grapes for Humanity, invited eleven of his friends to join him at Barberian’s Steak House on Elm Street, Toronto, for this fund-raiser dinner. The celebrity guests were Geddy Lee and Alex Liveson of Rush who regaled the company with stories of their touring and recording. The wine flowed…like wine and Barberian’s owner, Arron Barberian pledged $2,000 to the cause: the construction of a new home for street kids in Moshi, Tanzania.

For the record, the wines were:
