A Taste of Pride was successful and The AIDS Network would like to sincerely thank all those who came out in support of                    The AIDS Network. 

We also extend our sincere gratitude to the participating restaurants (One Duke, La Piazza, Sasso, and Purple Pear) that also helped make this event successful. 

And we also thank OPSEU/SEFPO Ontario Public Service Employees Union for sponsoring our grand prize!

Prize draws will take place later this afternoon with a board member overseeing the draws.  Good luck everyone!
