On Wednesday night, Bloor Street threw it’s massive annual fundraising effort for the Canadian Foundation for Aids Research (CANFAR). To reach their $400,000 goal, Bloor Street Entertains turns boutiques all over Toronto’s Yorkville neighborhood in pop-up restos catered by the city’s top chefs. Marc Thuet, Jamie Kennedy and Blu’s Massimo Collavani were just a few of the foodie names who cooked menus at venues normally known for dishing out luxe–Tiffany & Co., Eleven, George C., Holt Renfrew, Teatro Verde and Cartier among them. After dinner, the party moved over to the Royal Ontario Museum where the guest list included designers Sunny Fong, Jeremy Laing, Philip Sparks and Nada Shepherd, Canadian fashion royals Joe Mimran and Kimberley Newport-Mimran (who were also the event’s co-chairs), and sea of smartly dressed socials who cut a rug and tried to outbid each other in the silent auction.
