Worldwide, there are 36.7 million people living with HIV and AIDS, and nearly 75,500 are Canadians living with HIV. It is estimated that one in 120 Torontonians are HIV-positive. An estimated 35 million people have died from AIDS-related illnesses since the beginning of the epidemic. For 30 years, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research has supported innovative research to fight this disease. Bloor Street Entertains is Canada’s single largest fundraising gala event to support this research, and has brought in millions of dollars over the last 21 years.

The support of guests, sponsors, and partners at Bloor Street Entertains and the BSE After Party will continue to be the driving force behind reaching the goal of eradicating this disease.
