The Teresa Group
Your continued support of The Teresa Group is much appreciated. This year we have seen an increase in the number of pregnant women and our office is often filled with beautiful newborns! We have also been able to enhance our work with adolescents living with HIV in a strengthened partnership with Sick Kids Hospital.
Thanks for supporting the children!
All the best,
The Teresa Group
What a difference you have made! Thanks to your generous donation, children and their families who are affected by HIV can continue to receive practical assistance and emotional support through programs such as Family Support, Leading the Way, Leap for Success Tutor/Mentor Program and Summer Camp.
The delivery of innovative programs and services is our number one priority at The Teresa Group. Our child and family focus is unique.
Thank you for your generosity and your confidence in our work.
Toronto People With AIDS Foundation
On behalf of the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation's clients, staff, volunteers and board, please accept our heartfelt appreciation for this year's successful Home and Style Studio Tour. With funds being raised this year for PWA's services for individuals living with HIV/AIDS we are so grateful for our continued relationship with you and the show.
The generosity of community partners like you have enabled PWA in 2009/20010 to supply over 103,000 services including over 41,600 significant and unique practical support services accessed by more than 2,300 people living with HIV/AIDS. Providing important training to over 5,000 individuals, as well as over 60,000 critical referral, information and outreach interactions for close to 3,000 individuals were also important aspects of PWA's programming in 2009/2010.
PWA is so grateful to you and the Fall Home Show for your efforts on our behalf. This year's achievements are a reflection of the commitment that you've demonstrated year after year in raising critical money for local HIV/AIDS charities.
Thank you again for choosing to work with the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation for the Exclusive Access Sale at the Fall Home Show. We hope that you heard stories first hand from our volunteers, staff and clients who accessed the show through your donated tickets how much you are making a positive difference through your support of PWA.
Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research (CANFAR)
On behalf of the board and staff at CANFAR, the Canadian Foundation for AIDS Research, I would like to thank you for including us as the Charity of Choice for the Home & Style Studio Tour for a second year. As always, it was a pleasure to work with you on this innovative event.
Once again you planned a wonderful tour of the city’s great artists and allowed the public to become a part of the Toronto artists’ scene. The Home + Style Studio Tour is a unique event that we look forward to being a part of every year.
Thank you again for your generosity and leadership.

We very much want to thank you and the Home + Style Studio Tour and Sale for your donation to our David Kelley HIV/AIDS Community Counseling Program. We are pleased to have you choose us as a recipient and can assure you this directly supports our delivery of service to clients.
Once again thank you very much for considering our service this year. I know you are also assisting us in a voluntary capacity in another program area and I want to take this opportunity to thank you for giving us your valuable time in that respect.

Community AIDS Treatment Information Exchange (CATIE)
We now have a link on the Home + Style Studio Tour website (providing) increased awareness throughout Canada. CATIE is proud to be among the organizations chosen by the Home + Style Studio Tour and would like to thank Jeffrey and his team and sponsors for this important initiative.
Acting Team Leader, Resources & Development
AIDS Committee of Toronto
On behalf of myself and the AIDS Committee of Toronto, please allow me to express our sincerest thanks to yourself and the many individuals who contributed to making the Home + Style Studio Tour such an artistic and financial success.
Every aspect of the show was first class—from the open studios and their art to the many demonstrations that surrounded this event; everything was beautifully executed and presented. I know that the work displayed in the open studios that I visited was outstanding. My friends were also very impressed with the wide range of talent that was on display.
On a personal note, I would especially like to thank you, Jeffrey for your work in ensuring the success of the Home and Style Studio Tour. Your tireless efforts to promote the show and your great work in carefully organizing every detail really paid off.
We live at the crossroads in the AIDS service movement—thanks to the new drugs, more people are now living longer. Many people believe that the drug cocktails are a cure. Let me assure you that they are not. As the same time, HIV/AIDS is spreading into new populations—particularly women, youth, and IV drug users. Thanks to your support, ACT will be able to continue to provide help to those groups hardest hit by HIV/AIDS as well as extend our outreach work to prevent the further spread of this epidemic.
Thanks again for your time, talent, and energy.
