Tuesday, October 23, 2018 is a night you won’t forget.
Eat to the Beat presented by KitchenAid - the annual culinary event taking over Roy Thomson Hall - celebrates 23 years this year.
The unique fundraising event is the only one of its kind in Canada, featuring 60 top female chefs from across the GTA, gathering to support women through the challenges that come with a breast cancer diagnosis. Funds raised at tonight’s event do directly to supporting those affected by breast cancer through services offered by the Canadian Cancer Society.
Your ticket includes your choice of both sweet and savoury hors d'oeuvres from 60 top chefs, along with wine, craft beer and selection of non-alcoholic beverages from 20 purveyors.
