Our deepest gratitude to all those who came together to make our 8th Annual Celebration of Food and Wine the most successful yet.

The Unique Flavours of France: Champagne and Burgundy, held at The Toronto Hunt on July 18th, was a wonderful celebration of our donors and our hospital. A festive group of our closest friends enjoyed live music, gourmet delights and fine French wines under a 30 ft. Eiffel Tower on the shores of Lake Ontario – while making a difference for Michael Garron Hosptial.

This event would not be possible without our generous sponsors. With their support, this year’s event raised more than $115,000 in net revenue. These funds will help to put the latest technology and equipment into the hands of our skilled and compassionate medical team, support the hospital’s redevelopment, and ensure the highest level of care for our patients and community.

This year, the impact of this support is doubled! Every dollar raised through this event unlocks an additional dollar from a $25 million challenge grant from the Garron family. This means that proceeds from the evening will make twice the difference in patient care.

Thank you to DeClute Real Estate for their outstanding support and returning for a second year as our Presenting Sponsor.  

We would also like to acknowledge the generosity of Diamond Sponsor, Guardian Capital, and express our appreciation to our host, The Toronto Hunt, for their continued commitment to our Foundation and this event.


About the Event

Our annual Celebration of Food and Wine is of particular significance to us as it’s our opportunity to say thank you to our extraordinary donors and supporters. Their voluntarism and philanthropic spirit supports extraordinary innovation at the hospital and enables the work of world-class physicians to deliver compassionate care for some of the most vulnerable residents of our city.

Every year, in July, we showcase a country that excels in the wine industry, perfectly pairing the region’s signature dishes and finest wines. This event offers an extraordinary sponsorship opportunity and an exceptional experience for guests.

Hosted in the magical lakeside setting of The Toronto Hunt this exclusive invitation-only cocktail reception features fabulous food and wine stations and spectacular décor – whisking guests away for an evening in the featured region.  

If the fine wine and gourmet food is not proof enough of a fabulous event we also welcome a celebrity chef rooted and inspired by the country. Featured countries have included Argentina, South Africa, Italy – and most recently, France.

A big thank you to our dedicated event committee and Marcel Bregstein, Assistant General Manager at The Toronto Hunt, for bringing the whole event together every year and to the whole all Toronto Hunt staff for all their great service.
