MEMORIES OF BLOOR STREET ENTERTAINS 2017
Bloor Street Entertains 2017 was a phenomenal success! Thank you to all of our sponsors, venue hosts, chefs & catering teams, floral designers, photographers, furniture rental companies and, of course, all of our gala attendees! Without all of your support, none of this would be possible. We at CANFAR hope that you enjoy reliving all of the Memories of Bloor Street Entertains 2017.
Each year, just before World AIDS Day, Toronto witnesses something powerful, something unique; it sees the coming together of exquisite culinary masters, lavish retailers, and elegant florists who join together for a vital cause; it experiences CANFAR’s Bloor Street Entertains.
DINNER FOR A CAUSE
For 21 years, Bloor Street Entertains (BSE) has hosted Toronto’s business and philanthropic leaders for an unparalleled night of dining and entertainment, all in support of the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR).
On Wednesday, November 29, 2017, Bloor Street Entertains will bring together the city’s finest culinary masters, luxury retailers, and creative florists. The evening will begin with cocktail receptions hosted by some of Bloor-Yorkville’s most esteemed retailers. Guests will then be treated to a four-course dining experience with tablescapes carefully crafted by Toronto’s most prolific floral and décor experts. The night will culminate with the “BSE After Party” at the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. Throughout the night guests will also have access to our silent auction.
Worldwide, there are 36.7 million people living with HIV and AIDS, and nearly 75,500 are Canadians living with HIV.
An estimated 35 million people have died from AIDS-related illnesses since the beginning of the epidemic. For 30 years, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) has supported innovative research to fight this disease. Bloor Street Entertains is Canada’s single largest fundraising gala event to support this research, and has brought in millions of dollars over the last 21 years.
The support of guests, sponsors, and partners at Bloor Street Entertains and the BSE After Party will continue to be the driving force behind reaching the goal of eradicating this disease.
