The CANFAR’s (Canadian Foundation For Aids Research) Bloor St. Entertains really knew how to entertain for their 17th Annual Glitzy Gala last night. Since it’s inception in 1997, the gala has surpassed more than $5million for HIV and Aids research. www.CANFAR.com. A Big thank you goes out to Amanda Michalik of Weber-Shandwick for the invite and the great hospitality. www.webershadwick.com
A vintage 1920’s feel to the atmosphere at the R.O.M. was in store for the invited guest of the evening. Many guest arrived early to enjoy the beautiful R.O.M. The crowd were treated to the “Twilight” pre party until 7:30pm. Guests enjoyed sensational performances and a charity auction then they were guided to one of 17 special locations of their choice for an evening of great dining and ambiance.
For the one amazing night The Bloor-Yorkville corridor opened their doors and provide guest with a great dining experience. After the dining experience was done, guest were invited back for an after party back at the beautiful R.O.M. The crowd enjoyed some lively music from the D.J. when they returned and alot of smiling faces departed the R.O.M. when the evening ended. I’m sure everyone is looking forward to the 18th Annual CANFAR Gala in 2014.
