TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 30, 2007) -

U2 fans from Europe and all over North America are ready to push the limits of their partying potential at the 5th annual inTO the Heart U2 Fan Fest taking place at various venues in and around Toronto November 1-3!

inTO the Heart, the annual music festival organized by Greater Toronto Area fans celebrates not only U2's music and vibe... but it's spirit. ITH continues its tradition as a not-for-profit event and in honour of its 5th anniversary; a specific project in Guinea, Africa has been identified for this year's goal to raise $3,000. "The money donated will be used to fund a well project in Guinea where there is a dire need for access to clean water - more than 60 % of the population lacks access to a safe water supply," said Diane Yoder, AWF Board Officer, "the African Well Fund had its beginnings in the U2 fan community and they remain a bedrock of our support." Together we can build a well!
