A huge thank you to everyone who came out and supported our reboot of the Comfort & Joy silent art auction event on Friday December 6th! We had a blast and hope you did too! More importantly, with your help we were able to raise over $4,000, your generous support will help us to continue delivering some of our most needed programs and services for people living with, affected by and vulnerable to HIV in Hamilton, Halton, Haldimand Norfolk and Brant.
If you were unable to attend the event but would still like to support our efforts this holiday season, please consider making a donation through our Canada Helps page.
