When you rely on restaurants for your yearly charity drive, their closure is especially tough to take. For Fife House, a charity that provides secure housing and support for people living with HIV/AIDS, restaurant closures have meant overhauling an annual fundraising event named A Taste for Life. Still, in a year defined by reinvention, the Twice for Fife campaign was born, helping to raise money for Fife House and support beloved restaurants at the same time.
Founded in 1988, Fife House is a charitable organization that was created to fill the need in Toronto for supportive housing for people living with HIV/AIDS. Since 2001, Fife House has participated in A Taste for Life, a signature event held in cities across Canada. To support A Taste for Life, restaurants donate a percentage from each patron’s bill on a certain date to a charity. In 19 years, the event raised more than $1.4 million for Fife House.
For the second year, due to the ongoing COVD-19 pandemic, Twice for Fife will replace the usual fundraiser. This year, donations made to Fife House during the month of April will be doubled up to $50,000, thanks to donations from TD, Community One Foundation and Well + Good Pharmacy.
In addition, two local restaurants are joining the cause. On April 14, dine at The Blake House and the restaurant will donate 25% of purchases to Fife House. Throughout the month of April, Maison Selby will also be donating $1 from every beef bourguignon sold to the charity.
To give back to restaurants that have helped them over the years, Fife House is encouraging everyone to order takeout this April from past participants of A Taste for Life. From 7 Numbers to Sassafraz, The Shore Club and more, there are plenty of tempting spots to choose from.
