There is a new food and wine event in town and it’s all for a great cause. On Friday, November 4th, the Children’s Wish Foundation is holding an upbeat, trendy cocktail party with an urban vibe at the Horticulture Building at Lansdowne. Savour the Moment promises to be a night full of the best food and drink samplings the city has to offer.
The Children’s Wish Foundation is a uniquely Canadian charity that helps Canadian children, families and communities by granting the favourite wish of a child diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. With every wish that they grant, it creates moments of joy that ease the pain of a child, give respite to the child’s family, and connect healthcare professionals and communities in that burning wish of hope. They have been granting wishes since 1984.
Every wish is as unique as the child making it, from finally getting to cuddle with grandparents who live far away, to hitting a puck with a favourite hockey player. In the often painful life of a seriously ill child, these wishes make a tremendous difference.
Savour the Moment, brings together local restaurants, bakeries, breweries, and wineries. Guests will be able to socialize, sip, and savour their way through the evening. Local musicians and bands, a silent auction, and a few local VIPs will also add to the excitement of the evening. The event has local restaurants like: Crust & Crate, Must Kitchen, Coconut Lagoon, and Raon Kitchen. You’ll also be able to sample some local beer from the good folks at Dominion City Brewing Co. and Kichesippi Beer Co. For a full list of vendors, click here.
