2nd Annual Artful Palate Fundraiser

Over $5000 Raised at 2nd Annual Artful Palate Fundraiser

Wed, July 6, 2011 at Cirillo’s Culinary Academy

A festive crowd joined us to support the arts at the 2nd Annual Artful Palate fundraiser. The evening featured food demonstration and tasting stations, live music and selected artwork from Arts Etobicoke’s Art Rental & Sales program.

Guests also had the chance to bid on fabulous silent auction items, including artwork by Board Member Frank Trotz and Reimer Reinke and a signed copy of Dionne Brand’s Griffin-prize winning Ossuaries. Thanks to all who donated items to our silent auction.

We were thrilled to welcome back three young students from the Kingsway Conservatory of Music who provided live music. KCM is both a member of Arts Etobicoke and a recipient in our Presidents’ Legacy Scholarships program.

The event raised over $5000 which will support the unique arts education programming that we offer to our community.

We gratefully acknowledge John and Margit Cirillo of Cirillo's Culinary Academy for hosting and sponsoring this beautiful event. As well, a big thank you goes to Alejandra De Miguel from Vintage One Wines.

We sincerely appreciate the many donations we received from those who could not attend. Thank you also to photographer Robert Carter for donating his services at this event and to ARC Canada for their donation of printing services.

The event preparations ran smoothly thanks to the support of many volunteers: Tara Dunphy, Margie Macdonald, Josie Ieraci, Kathe Illescas, Jackie Daantos, Janette Cheng.

Thank you to all who came out to support us!
