The Children's Aid Society of Hamilton is hosting a good food for a great cause.
A group of local restaurants, caterers and wineries have come together to help raise more than $130,000 for children at risk through the annual Grape Expectations Gala on Monday, Oct. 24 at Liuna Station.
"Our participation in Grape Expectations gave us the opportunity to assist in raising funds for worthwhile children's programs and also give back to the community in which we work and live," said Charmaine LeFebour, owner of Dundas' Chef & Wife Cuisine and Catering.
She is one of 34 businesses who will be donating to the cause.
Guests will sip some of the most sought after wines and sample delicious and unique dishes while at the same time supporting local children.
"There are many smart and talented children that can, and will, make wonderful lives for themselves, but they need to have the love, the support and the opportunities," said Dominic Verticchio, executive director of the Children's Aid Society of Hamilton.
"That's why the Children's Fund, and this event, are so important to everyone at the Society. We are extremely grateful for all the support we've received in the past and continue to receive from this community."
The proceeds will provide post-secondary bursaries, and vital therapeutic and recreational programs to children that have suffered from abuse and neglect.
Tickets are $100 and can be purchased by calling 905-522-1121, Ext. 6414.
