A memorable Grand Cru charity event in Toronto

GC_2009.jpg

This year marked the 5th anniversary of Grand Cru Culinary Wine Festival in Toronto. In its first four years, Grand Cru has raised over $5.5 million for research at Toronto General Hospital and Toronto Western Hospital.

In aditions to the wining and dining, tasting and auction, 2009 also marked the 50th anniversary of Todd Halpern, co-chair of the event and long time friend and agent. As in the past, the presence of vintners and celebrity chefs was amazing, the hosting donors greeted us at their homes with incredible generosity in company of the scientists that will make best use of the money raised to our mutual benefit.

See how well the funds will be used by the McEwen Centre for Regenerative Medicine on this Youtube video

The party that followed was something else: elephants, baby lion and a zoo of happy vintners dressed-up for the occasion. See a selection of photos of the events here

Congratulation to Todd, Colin and all the team of Halpern Enterprises.
