Art With Heart, presented by TD Bank Group, was an unparallelled success.
October 18th saw 500 artists, art buyers, sponsors, gallerists, and Casey House supporters come together in support of compassionate and holistic clinical care for men and women living with advanced HIV/AIDS.
The live and silent auction halls at the AGO were electric with energy as over $600,000 was raised in support of community programs at Casey House, including nursing and social work visits to clients in their homes, at shelters, or through outreach.
Seventy-nine works of contemporary Canadian art found new homes with buyers who eagerly raised their paddles to compete for a chance to own a piece from this stellar collection.
Our heartfelt appreciation to everyone involved with Art With Heart this year, thank you!
Whether you are a generous corporate sponsor, a member of the curatorial committee, an artist, gallery, matching lot sponsor, auctioneer, event day volunteer, wall builder, host of an exclusive preview event, or an art buyer, you played a key role in this year’s success, and Casey House is grateful to you.
Casey House community clients receive exceptional, expert clinical care. Each client has a personalized care plan, tailored to their needs, as staff engage clients in setting health and wellness goals at Casey House.
Thank you for supporting Casey House’s approach to caring for the whole person, not just their diagnosis. HIV is only part of the story.
