On Wednesday, November 27, 2019, Bloor Street Entertains will once again bring together the city’s finest culinary masters, luxury retailers, and creative florists to host a beautiful evening for guests and raise money towards ending the HIV epidemic in Canada. 

Bloor Street Entertains is Canada’s largest fundraising gala in support of HIV innovative research. Our goal is to deliver a world class event, which raises funds and awareness for this important cause and to ultimately reduce the number of new HIV infections in the country.

The Silent Auction

Throughout the evening, guests will have the opportunity to bid in our prestigious online Silent Auction at CANFARAUCTION.COM.
Featuring luxurious items, packages and experiences at prices you won’t want to miss, all proceeds will support ending the HIV epidemic in Canada.

The Dinner

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 After Party

The night will culminate with the After Party. Dance, socialize, and enjoy a drink from the host bar in the beautiful Four Seasons Hotel Toronto. Join the festivities alongside Toronto’s most esteemed business, fashion and philanthropic leaders.

Becoming Family

Becoming Family is the theme of this year’s Bloor Street Entertains.

The Bloor Street Entertains family is comprised of our guests and patrons, sponsors, volunteers, venue partners, CANFAR ambassadors and more – this year, we want to highlight your contribution and remind the Toronto community that our common goal of ending the HIV epidemic in Canada needs to remain a priority.

Your contribution to the Bloor Street Entertains Campaign will help support innovative HIV/AIDS research beyond the night of the event and help CANFAR reach the goal of ending the HIV epidemic in Canada. #BecomingFamily #BSE2019
