EVENT: TASTE MATTERS
DATE: Nov 2, 2017
LOCATION: Liberty Grand, Toronto
CHARITY: Eva's Initiatives for Homeless Youth
TASTE MATTERS is a Fundraiser that benefits Eva's Initiatives a charitable organization that helps homeless youth. Eva's Initiatives was created for Eva Smith who emigrated to Canada in 1956. She passed away in 1993 and a few years later the Satellite Emergency youth shelter was created in Toronto. It helps youth between 16-24 with emergency shelter and assistance.
The Taste Matters event is hosted by cookbook authors and sisters, Julie Albert & Lisa Gnat to continue raising funds for the much needed services in Toronto.
The Fundraising event was held at the spectacular Liberty Grand at Exhibition Place where 22 Food and beverage vendors in Toronto provided samples of their food and drink. Below are a few of the things I sampled at the event including Rancho Relaxo's Fish Tacos, ones of the longest lineups. I also enjoyed the Butternut squash ravioli from North 44 and the salmon Tartare from the Edible Story.
They also had a raffle and silent auction. These are a couple of the things from the silent auction that caught my eye but unfortunately I don't have anywhere to put them.
