This spring, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR) will unite Toronto’s political, business and philanthropic leaders in the fight against HIV and AIDS. Can You Do Lunch? is a 90-minute fundraising and networking opportunity in support of Canadian HIV and AIDS research.

Now in its fifth year, Can You Do Lunch? will welcome more than 400 guests to the Four Seasons Hotel Toronto on June 12, 2017, from 12 p.m.- 1:30 p.m., for a lunch, inspirational speaker and silent auction networking event.

This annual event raises awareness of women and HIV.  Globally, half of all those infected are women. In Canada, close to 25% are female, while countless others are caregivers to sons, brothers, cousins and friends who are HIV positive. One women becomes infected somewhere in the world every one minute.

This year’s event will be co-chaired by Shawn Hewson and Ruth Promislow. It will be hosted and emceed by Valerie Pringle, CM, CANFAR’s national spokesperson and our National Youth Ambassador, Muluba Habanyama.

In addition to a gourmet lunch and inspirational speaker, guests have the opportunity to partake in a curated silent auction of unique and luxurious items. We hope that you will support Can You Do Lunch? this year by becoming an in-kind sponsor for their silent auction with the donation of a product, service or gift card. Supporting this event provides you with an excellent marketing opportunity to showcase your product or service to an exclusive demographic, while supporting Canadian HIV and AIDS research.
