CANFAR’s Bloor Street Entertains 2014
For the eighteenth year leading up to World AIDS Day, CANFAR‘s Bloor Street Entertains transforms the exclusive Yorkville neighbourhood of Toronto and the Royal Ontario Museum (ROM) into an exceptional evening on November 25, 2014.
The night brought together luxury venues, elite florists and select chefs in support of HIV and AIDS research.
For example, Executive Chef Keith Froggett of legendary restaurant Scaramouche prepared the meal at Max Mara retail store and Sam Gelman of Momofuku served dinner at Tiffany & Co.

More than eight hundred guests converged at the Royal Ontario Museum following dinner for the After Party (aka Crash the Crystal), a gala celebration with spectacular entertainment.
Canadian Fashion icon Jeanne Beker, celebrity chef David Rocco, HGTV host Peter Fallico and well known Toronto philanthropist Catherine Nugent were in attendance.
Since its founding in 1988, Bloor Street Entertains has raised over five million dollars for CANFAR, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research. Sponsored by Sun Life Financial, this year’s chairpersons are Brian Porter, President and CEO of Scotiabank, and Megan Porter.
The Toronto All-Star Big Band played old favourites enticing the young and young at heart to the dance floor.
Although full from a gourmet dinner, most guests could be persuaded to try the open macaroon sandwiches with fresh berries to put a nice finish on the evening.
