The Bloor-Yorkville BIA is proud to return as the Official Community Partner for CANFAR‘s (Canadian Foundation for Aids Research) Bloor Street Entertains (BSE). This annual charity event brings together our esteemed retailers and renowned chefs for a one-of-a-kind evening. CANFAR is dedicated to ending the HIV endemic in Canada and has raised more than $24 million toward HIV/Aids research projects, each of which has led to tremendous breakthroughs in prevention, testing, treatment, and stigma prevention. This year’s event is taking place on November 30th, on the eve of World Aids Day.
This year marks the 26th anniversary of BSE with the theme of “Let’s end HIV in Canada once and for all.” Of BSE, CANFAR says:
Bloor Street Entertains’ 2022 edition will serve to highlight CANFAR’s new awareness campaign, Global Lessons, Local Action, promoting the importance to act swiftly to effectively put an end to HIV in Canada.
Participating Bloor-Yorkville venues include Brunello Cuccinelli, Four Seasons Hotel, Gardiner Museum, The Hazelton Hotel, Holt Renfrew, Louis Vuitton, Lumas, MaxMara, MCM, Park Hyatt, Peter Triantos Art Gallery, RIMOWA, & Tiffany & Co.
Each of these fantastic spaces will be transformed into intimate dinner settings with guests also receiving invitations to the official After Party taking place at the Four Seasons. The After Party will feature the iconic Silent Auction, which will feature everything from global vacation packages, art pieces, spa experiences, fashion items, and more.
