TONIGHT! All Female Chef Line-Up at the 16th Annual Eat to the Beat Fundraiser
Sixty of Canada’s top female chefs, each donating their time and talent, will serve up edible treats at the annual culinary fundraiser, Eat to the Beat, Tuesday, October 18, at 7:00pm at Roy Thomson Hall (60 Simcoe Street).
Eat to the Beat is a cornucopia of sweet and savory foods, wines and premium beers for sampling, all “tastefully” presented around the hall’s outer lobby.
Among the chef line-up are Anne Yarymowich, Frank, Art Gallery of Ontario, and Donna Dooher, Mildred’s Temple Kitchen. This year’s focus is on locally grown, sustainable, seasonal foods and will include “The Country Chicks” with the best chefs, cheese makers, farmers and wine makers from Prince Edward County (Ontario).
Not to be missed at the event are the “class with a bit of sass” ladies, modeling food-inspired corsets; many created by Canadian designers some of who have been affected by breast cancer. The evening also includes live music, a silent auction featuring must-have items, and a raffle draw for a chance to win great prizes including a five-star, all-inclusive trip for two to the Dominican Republic, donated by Air Canada Vacations and The Gran Bahia Principe Esmeralda.
The event is organized by Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada, a not for profit organization that offers free peer support to women coping with breast cancer, their families and friends. Now in its 16th year Eat to the Beat has raised $3.1 million for Willow’s free programs and services.
Tickets that include all food and beverage sampling are still available for $150 each (with a tax receipt) by calling 416.778.6314, x 229 or are available at the door.
