3rd Annual Chefs’ Charity Dinner Raises $70,000 for At-Risk Youth
What an evening! Our 3rd Annual Chefs’ Charity Dinner was an outstanding success, raising $70,000 for youth affected by depression, anxiety and addiction issues as a result of childhood trauma and abuse.
To our board, volunteers, donors and other supporters, thank you for your gifts of time and financial contributions.
Our chefs were the stars of the evening and we’d like to salute Chefs Sean Cousins (Vancouver Club), Stefan Hartmann (Bauhaus Restaurant), Lee Cooper (L’Abattoir), David Gunawan (Farmer’s Apprentice) and Sous-Chef Jessica Caparas (Vancouver Club) for their delicious artistry.
We would also like to recognize Global BC, Miss604, and Trigate Development Corporation for their generous sponsorship.
Special thanks to emcee Fred Lee, the Vancouver Club, Nootka Marine Adventures, WestJet, Paul Shipton and Omar Duric, Joan Carlisle-Irving, Dato’ Mark Yeoh, Neville Snook, Private Label Worldwide, Norma Paradis, Chocolate Arts, Purdys Chocolatier and Shoppers Drug Mart.
The Chefs’ Charity Dinner has grown significantly since 2015, when 60 guests helped raise $23,000 for our cause. Next year’s gala, the 4th Annual Chefs’ Charity Dinner, is slated for Thursday, November 16th , 2017 at the Vancouver Club – please Save The Date!
