An annual photographic fundraiser for the AIDS Committee of Toronto (ACT), SNAP lights up the Bram and Bluma Appel Salon, at the Toronto Reference Library, on March 30, 2017. Now in its 15th year, this glittering, gala evening encompasses a photo competition, along with a Live and Silent Auction of art. Among the entrees, for the Live Auction, are some of the most renowned Canadian and local photographers, as well as international talent. Run as a contemporary photo competition, the Silent Auction gives exposure to over 500 entrants this year.
Raising over $2.5 million, since its inception, SNAP provides patrons with an opportunity to support ACT’s programs and services, increase their awareness of HIV/AIDS, and add to their art collections. The creative event provides a great opportunity for both established and emerging artists to showcase their work.
Tickets are available at www.snap-toronto.com, where the entire collection of each auction is available to view.
