The Mirabel Foundation, like its founder, is vibrant and ever evolving connected to all the things she s interested in entertainment, music and comedy and centred around one of the liveliest areas of Melbourne, St Kilda. That explains how she got so many well-known entertainers to support this cause. But the basis of it all is the children lonely children, frightened children, abandoned children all innocent victims of their parents drug addiction. Jane Rowe has put light back into their lives while taking a big chunk out of her own.
