Given the current state of affairs and the restrictions we are all respecting as a result of the second wave of COVID-19, we know it’s impossible to gather as large groups for the event, as we usually do. In the spirit of keeping the BSE tradition alive, and to celebrate major milestones including the approval of self-testing kits in Canada slated to be announced this fall, we have come up with a different formula for this November 25th, which will include a broadcast featuring special guests including Honourary Chair Salah Bachir, with more surprises for you.
Hence why we invite you to “join” the Magic of Bloor Street Entertains… at home! for this year’s edition.
We hope you will partake and join us in this evening of pared-down festivities, where we will have a few surprises to keep you entertained!
This year, we’d like you to have a nice dinner at home on the evening of November 25th and dedicate your night by donating in support of ending the HIV epidemic in Canada by 2025.
It wouldn’t be BSE without our fabulous silent auction, and of course the auction will be taking place virtually, along with a platform for live donations leading to and on the night of the event at CANFARAUCTION.COM.
With any donation of $1,000 or more, you will receive a luxury gift basket including GH Mumm Cordon Rouge Champagne and several treats for you and your guests at home.
Salah Bachir has played an instrumental role in the successful execution of CANFAR’s mission over the years. At BSE 2020, we will be honouring Salah with the new CANFAR Patron Circle Award in recognition of his years of dedication to helping us win the battle against HIV/AIDS.
