Memorial concert for Nighisti Semret tonight
Nighisti Semret's former employers will honour her life with a memorial concert & fundraiser Friday night.
The Eritrean refugee was stabbed to death in a Cabbagetown alley last month on her way home from her shift as an overnight cleaner at the Delta Chelsea Hotel.
Friday night's memorial concert is being co-hosted by the hotel & Andorra Building Maintenance Ltd at the Delta Chelsea's Monarchs Pub. It starts at 8pm.
Money raised will help pay for travel costs for Semret's family & to take her body back to Africa.
If you want to help but can't make it to the event, you can give to "Nighisti Semret Memorial Fund" at any CIBC branch.
Toronto Police are still looking for Semret's suspected murderer. They believe he lives in Cabbagetown & may walk with a limp.
Homicide detectives have been circulating video & video stills of the suspect online trying to get an ID. Starting Friday, they'll take that footage to the streets on tablets.
