Top Chef Charity Dinner
Feb 28, 2019
The “Gift” team has been busy expanding our fund-raising efforts and will launch our first ever charity dinner on Feb 28, 2019. No sorting food cans at this event!!
It is our first inaugural "Top Chef" evening for the Burlington based, Gift of Giving Back run jointly with Burlington Fire.
As you know, the Gift of Giving Back is a Burlington registered charity focused on teaching and empowering youth to give back to their community and among other initiative use a food drive as its core engagement and tactic to raise local empathy. The Gift of Giving Back is now Canada's largest community food drive and helps a dozen agencies serve their needy clients across the region including the Burlington Food Bank, the Salvation Army, Food for Life, the Carpenter Hospice, the Halton Women’s Shelter, the Kerr Street Mission, and the Compassion Society. We are all volunteers and work very hard to deliver help to these agencies. We have raised well over 3 million pounds of food in the last few years to help the needy in our community as well as inspiring thousands of young people to care about those in need.
Our Burlington Firefighters have partnered up with the GOGB volunteers to bring Burlington an excellent evening focused on good food and celebration of community compassion. Fire Chief Dave Lazenby is our Honorary Chair.
Dinner will be an excellent 4 course meal from delicious recipes submitted by innovative firefighter chefs. Meals will be prepared by the chefs at the Burlington Convention Centre and guests will have an chance to vote on the BEST courses based on the submitted firehall recipes, to name the TOP CHEF. A live and interactive auction for 300 guests will provide for an engaging and delicious evening.
Lauren, The Auctionista is a Philanthor-tainer who provides interactive entertainment while facilitating the live auction. She will bring a captivating, entertaining & high energy, performance- based live auction to our inaugural event.

We are seeking players who have at least attained the age of 55. Some of our golfers are founding members who joined 30 years ago and they are now in their 80's.
