Have a ground-breaking idea? Want to do something with your family, friends or co-workers for a good cause? Why not hold a fabulous event on behalf of Casey House?

Whether you’re an individual, business, community group, school or service club, a community fundraiser can be a fun and rewarding way to generate valuable funds for, and awareness of, Casey House and the great work we do. Every dollar raised makes a difference in the lives of people living with HIV/AIDS. Proceeds from community fundraisers help to support Casey House community programs including homecare and outreach by nurses and social workers.

Here are some creative examples of community-hosted events:

  • Priscilla Queen of the Desert. A special evening hosted by J. Elaine Marcos, featuring Nick Adams and other cast members generated funds to support Casey House.
  • Red Rocket Coffee. Throughout the month of February, Red Rocket Coffee shops on Wellesley and Queen Street East kindly collected conations for Casey House.
  • Doug Stone Art Show, The Al Green Gallery. Artist Doug Stone and the Al Green Gallery donated a percentage of sales to Casey House.
