Hey Toronto foodies, it’s time for one of my favorite culinary events of the year, the 21st annual edition of Eat To The Beat! Presented by KitchenAid, this fundraiser helps support the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation. This is the only event in Canada that exclusively features the talent of 60 top female chefs – women supporting women through the challenges that come with a breast cancer diagnosis. This year the event takes place on Tuesday, November 1st from 7:00pm to 10:00pm and tickets can be purchased for $189 (with a tax receipt).
If you go to just one event of the year, I think that this should be the one. Not only are these some of the best women in the industry but the cause that you’ll be supporting is one that has impacted the lives of millions of women all over the world and even some we know personally. The funds raised at Eat to the Beat will be directed towards supporting the full spectrum of breast cancer care offered by the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation – from important research where the latest innovations are developed to direct patient support – and will benefit not only the estimated 25,000 Canadian women who are diagnosed every year with this disease, but also the families and friends who love and support them.
Along with all the amazing food, all beverages, alcoholic and non-alcoholic, are included. The event also features breast cancer survivors modeling original food-inspired corsets that they have created. These models all have amazing stories and add a bit of spice to the night.
So if the food from the sixty chefs or the many beverages aren’t enough to entice you, maybe the silent auction, live music and raffles will pique your interest. The $20 mystery bag is one that I always head for as soon as I enter. It’s a simple concept; you pay $20 and you choose a bag with a mystery prize.
Now do I have a special treat for you! I’ve teamed up with the folks to offer you a chance to win a pair of tickets to this fabulous event. Use the widget below and good luck!!
