There are over 63,000 people in Canada living with HIV and it is estimated that six people in Canada become newly infected with HIV each day, or nearly one person infected every four hours.

Bloor Street Entertains is Canada’s single largest fundraising gala event to support Canadian HIV research, and has raised millions of dollars over the last 22 years. Each year, Bloor Street Entertains hosts Toronto’s business, fashion and philanthropic leaders for an unparalleled night of dining and entertainment – in support of the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR).

The goal for Bloor Street Entertains is to deliver a world class event, which raises funds and awareness for this important cause and to ultimately reduce the number of new HIV infections in the country. The support of guests, sponsors, and partners at Bloor Street Entertains is the driving force that allows CANFAR to continue moving forward in its mission to end the HIV epidemic in Canada

We would like to thank Amira de Vera of Project Four Public Relations for the invitation to this event.
