We have participated in the CAMH Unmasked event for the past two years and were delighted to be asked back as a caterer again this year. Not only do we love supporting such a great cause, we have also loved working alongside the organizers and the various gallery owners who open their doors to host the dinner portion of the evening.
The intimate dinners, which take place in numerous galleries across the city, are followed by a Gala 99 Sudbury. The Gala is part Art Auction, part party and is truly a celebration of all of the attendees whose support of CAMH is critical to the hospital’s ongoing success.
We were thrilled to be at the Edward Day Gallery once again and adored the look of these fiery orange linens from Chairman Mills against the contemporary gallery setting .
Guests were greeted with an array of hors d’oeuvres: torchon of foie gras on brioche, seared scallops with spring pea puree atop truffled potato chips and a spring artichoke and white bean bruschetta with shaved Reggiano. We offered up on of our favourite local sparkling wines, Henry of Pelham’s Cuvee Catherine Brut which, by the way, took Gold at the 2012 Canadian wine awards. Well worth the trip to the LCBO!
Dinner consisted of a citrus, lobster and avocado salad (Nyarai Cellars 2011 Viognier, Niagara) and Ontario naturally-raised veal (Clos Philippe-Le-Hardi Bourgougn, Hautes-Cotes-de-Beaunes 2013, France).
At the end of the day, the event raised a record $1M in support of vital projects underway at CAMH. Now that is something we can all be proud of.
