Casey House signature events raise funds for our vital community programs, which rely almost exclusively on donor support. We are grateful to our generous sponsors, volunteers, artists, galleries, and attendees for bringing health and hope to people living with HIV/AIDS in Toronto.

June’s. An HIV+ Eatery
Introducing the first-ever HIV+ restaurant. Join chef Matt Basile and his team of HIV-positive cooks as they break bread and smash HIV/AIDS stigma.
For many people living with HIV/AIDS, it’s the stigma that hurts the most. June’s HIV+ Eatery is an opportunity to fight stigma with every bite. To come together in a show of love, support and acceptance, and to dispel the myths about HIV that condemn so many to suffer in silence.
June’s was located at 1090 Queen St. West and was open on November 7th and 8th 2017. Tickets were $125 per person.
