TD Bank Group presents Art With Heart, the 24th annual auction of contemporary Canadian art in support of compassionate client-driven HIV/AIDS care at Casey House, taking place Tuesday October 17 at the AGO. The evening features a live and silent auction of paintings, prints, drawings and photographs by some of this country’s foremost established and emerging artists, which kicks off with a preview reception.
It’s all in support of Casey House, Canada’s first and only stand-alone hospital for people living with HIV/AIDS, which provides holistic clinical care with an innovative approach to health and well-being. Art purchases support health care programs, including inpatient and day health programs, community care, and an outreach program.
A committee of passionate and knowledgeable volunteers from the art community selects the diverse and stunning group of contemporary works, and they have a knack for choosing art people want. Fall in love with the collection at artwithheart.ca. Tickets available online or by calling (416) 962-4040 ext. 4000. Art With Heart 2017 is presented by TD Bank Group and sponsored in part by Urbacon, Monnet Design, and Toronto’s Only All Classical Station…The New Classical 96.3 FM.
