Each year Regional HIV/AIDS Connection organizes three main fundraising events: A Taste For LIfe, Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life and Rocky Horror Picture Show. These events help support free programs and services that otherwise would not exist for people living with, affected by and at risk for HIV/AIDS.
A Taste For Life
Update about A Taste For Life 2013, Wednesday, April 24, 2013 in London, Exeter AND Stratford!
This year on Wednesday, April 24th, we have 29 locally owned and operated restaurants supporting Regional HIV/AIDS Connection for our 10th Annual A Taste For Life in London and 3 restaurants for our 2nd Taste in Stratford!
Last year in both communities, over 2,400 people went out to dine and raised over $57,000 in support of free services and programs for people living with, affected by or at risk for HIV/AIDS!
Without fundraised dollars RHAC would not be able to continue to provide free services such as: Country Cupboard Food Bank, Wellness Assistance Fund, two AIDS vigils and much more.
A Taste For Life is the signature fundraising event for RHAC. It is a dining event in which participating restaurants agree to donate the equivalent of 25% of the night’s proceeds to RHAC. Thousands of people dine out in our Taste restaurants enjoying good food for a great cause! They also make generous donations above the cost of their meals that evening.
A Taste For Life has captured the attention and philanthropic inclinations of people all over London and Stratford. We thank our loyal supporters for their continued interest in our cause!
Diners each receive an envelope that has two functions: 1) contain individual donations above the cost of a meal 2) enter a draw to win exciting prizes!
We gratefully acknowledge the strong support of several London businesses that sponsor A Taste For Life. We thank you on behalf of all who benefit from the services of Regional HIV/AIDS Connection.

Save the date! The Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life in London is Saturday, September 14, 2013. Visit Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life for event details and great photos from 2012.
The Scotiabank AIDS Walk for Life fundraiser is one of the most visible and recognizable events in North America. In Canada alone over 40 cities are scheduled to walk between September 14-22, 2013.
All funds raised in London stay within the community to support three partner agencies: Camp Wendake, John Gordon Home and Regional HIV/AIDS Connection. Together these organizations provide a complementary suite of services to those living with, affected by and at risk for HIV/AIDS.
All promotional products such as the Save the Date fridge magnets and cards, t-shirts, ruby AIDS lapel pins, etc. have been provided to each Walk site free of charge by our national sponsor, Scotiabank. These items make it possible for us to raise awareness about the event and to raise some extra dollars through sales. Thank you, Scotiabank!
