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
