The Event

Byward Social

On Tuesday, May 1, 2018, CANFAR’s 2nd Annual Byward Social will once again be held at the trendy schad boutique, in Ottawa’s Byward Market.

The evening’s Co-Chairs, Sheila O’Gorman and Tara Shields, invite you to a cocktail reception where fashion and philanthropy come together in support of research into all aspects of HIV and AIDS.

Space is limited, so RSVP before it’s too late, to Debbie Osske. Tickets are $65.

Thanks to the generous support of Freedom International Brokerage and CANFAR supporters, Patricia Olasker and her husband Brett Ledger – any donations made from now until Friday, May 18, 2018 will be matched. This means that when you make a generous gift to CANFAR, your impact will be doubled.
