St. Clare Inn – Virtual Spring Gala
St. Clare Inn (Toronto, ON) is a transitional housing project offering accommodation to homeless women between the ages of 30-60, who are struggling with a diagnosed mental health issue. This ministry, under the leadership of Friar Tom Purcell, OFM Conv., offers temporary residence for a period of up to one year, in a non-denominational home-like setting, where the focus is on re-building lives and self-esteem.

Every year, St. Clare Inn holds two major fundraisers to help with operational costs, as the ministry is entirely funded privately and receives no government support. This past October, the Annual Linda’s Walk was held as a virtual walk, and the support from walkers, sponsors and donors helped to make it a great success. It is hoped that this Virtual Spring Gala ~ “Sips In Slippers” will be just as fruitful. With your help, it will.
Sips In Slippers is a virtual wine tasting event that guests can enjoy from the comfort of their homes. The event will feature a vintner and a sommelier walking guests through the selected wines and potential pairings. Guests will receive a bottle of wine, a gourmet meal, a wine glass and much much more. The wine tasting video link will be sent to guests via email after they purchase their tickets. As this is a virtual local event, it is available on three different days: Friday, April 23, 2021 – Saturday, April 24, 2021 – Sunday, April 25, 2021. The ticket options include a prepared meal to be picked up or delivered, so tickets are available to anyone living within the Greater Toronto Area. For those who are not local, but still want to contribute to the event, visit the Donations page of the St. Clare Inn website, call 416.690.0330, or email firstname.lastname@example.org. (Note: The email you use to register is the email to which the video link is sent).
