Did you know that every night, more than 2000 Toronto youth are living in the street?
Of those 2000, 79% of them site parental addiction, physical, psychological, sexual and emotional abuse as the reason they left home? 40% of homeless youth experience mental health issues but after 4 years of living on the street, that number grows to 705?
Their staff work directly with each and every young person who walks through their doors to come up with individual, personalized plans that will empower them to set and reach goals, both short and long term. It's a fresh start for the most vulnerable among us.
You can make cash donations that supply these young people with personal hygiene supplies, TTC passes, food, safe shelter or a day of education counselling. You can volunteer your time, give to their wish list or help with fundraising. Volunteers provide Eva's with administration and office assistance, graphic design, help with fund raising events both in planning and in the physical set up and hand's on running of the events.
So, I am here to share their annual fundraiser, Taste Matters that brings together Toronto's top culinary talent for a night of food, drink, music, live auctions, silent auctions and door prizes at the beautiful Liberty Grand on November 2, 2017.
Tickets are $125 and that includes all you can eat and drink and all ticket holders also get a copy of the Bite Me More cookbook by the Bite Me Sisters. All proceeds go to safe shelter, food and 24/7 support for homeless youth.
I encourage everyone to get a ticket and attend because not only is this a great cause, but it's a fantastic party but, in the meantime, if you want to try to win a pair of tickets, here is your chance. If you win free tickets, that frees up more money to spend on all of the amazing auction items, right??
