A Taste For Life

Join us on Wednesday, May 1st 2019! 

A Taste For Life, a one day annual fundraiser, will take place on Wednesday May 1, 2019 at 35+ restaurants across the city. The concept is simple; Torontonians are asked to dine at a participating restaurant and 25% of the gross proceeds from the night are donated directly to Fife House. Now a national event, 2019 marks the 19th anniversary of A Taste for Life in Toronto. In 2018, approximately 4,000 diners participated at 44 restaurants to raise more than $95,000 in support of individuals and families living with HIV/AIDS.

Raffle Prizes

1. Two tickets anywhere in the world WestJet flies. 

2. Stay at One King West Hotel.

 3. Toronto Maple Leafs Nazem Kardri’s signed hockey stick.
