The 29th Annual Art With Heart @AGO Auction-Tues.,Oct.22nd,2022
By Jody Glaser – About Town Photos
After a long 3 years, Art With Heart returned to the AGO for their 29th annual auction of contemporary art by local Canadian artists. This was a celebration for sure returning with an in-person event that is so important to Casey House. Funds raised from this sold-out
evening will support people living with, and at risk of HIV.
Happily the TD Bank Group continues their support as presenting sponsor helping to underwrite the costs associated
with such a major fundraiser.
The evening began as guests and patrons gathered in Walker’s Court to enjoy a welcome reception and view the art that later
would be up for bids in the auction itself.
Later, it was up to the second floor where the auction was presented once again by auctioneer Stephen Ranger. The bidding
was fast and exciting just to watch, let alone purchase art from both emerging and established artists. Valuable today and likely
more so in coming years.
Through art you could say that Casey House brings people together and in turn, connect people to the care they may not have or been
able to receive elsewhere. There is always a need to create new services to meet the challenges and complex needs of clients.
