Day 46: Changing the World 1 Chocolate Truffle Gelato Icewine Ball at a Time

As you can see from the first post on my site I have entered a cooking contest this coming weekend in Toronto called The Chef Challenge for a Cure. This charity event features celebrity Chef Gordon Ramsey breathing down our necks while 5 teams will create a  gourmet dinner competing for the title of “Best Chef.” I have now raised $6200 for this event with all proceeds benefiting women’s cancer research at Mount Sinai Hospital.

As well as raise money I wanted to help this charity event any way I could. Since I am a fundraiser by profession I thought some of my colleagues may want to help me with this project as well.

GIVE 46 / Day 46
This GIVE may have been requested by me for this worthy cause but was generously donated by my dear friend Hart Melvin that owes the best gelato making company in North America – Gelato Fresco. Hart is a philanthropist to the core. I have known him for over a decade and he has been supporting charity events with his products far longer than this, and gives generously in all areas of his life.
For this particular event, The Chef’s Challege for a Cure, Hart made a personal donation to My Profile and on top of that is donating 100 White Chocolate Truffle Gelato Ice-cream Balls that are filled with Icewine.
I have had the rare privilege of tasting these remarkable culinary delights. All I can say is Oh My! They actually leave you speechless. These desserts are only made for very special occasions. They are not available to purchase in a store they have to be made by order only (sorry). Hart will be supporting a special brunch in honour of top fundraisers of this event.
Hart, thank you for your support and most of all your on going philanthropic work. You are one of those great people that goes unrecognized for all you do. Thank you for supporting me and the on going research of women’s cancers.

Time Commitment: 5 minutes via an email conversation

Cost: 0 to me but a large donation from Gelato Fresco

  2. Thank you for a most memorable and fun evening at the Chef’s Challenge last Saturday. It was both fun, edible, and thought provoking !
    Fun to be involved and observe all of you participants having a once in a life time experience, with Gordon Ramsey and the other great Chefs.
    To watch the flurry of anxiety in competing and the relief of completion . And personally to be an observer without that tension !
    To experience the same great menu as you cooked – but cooked by the local chefs of the establishment we were in.
    To eat slowly all evening and really enjoy it all leisurely
    Thought provoking for those with cancers that have had to endure much pain suffering and hardship and hope this would be one step to preventing that.
    Thought provoking to know how much individual and collective energy went into accumulating so much funding to GIVE to this great cause
    Yes, it was a time to remember ! Remember those still living
    Thank you for inviting me to be your guest and all that it meant to me.
