Comments 48 by Rebecca Bollwitt

On Thursday, November 16, five of Metro Vancouver’s top chefs will create exquisite culinary masterpieces for 120 guests at the 4th Annual Chefs’ Charity Dinner at the prestigious Vancouver Club. Funds raised at the gala support Dan’s Legacy’s counselling and life-skills programs for youth affected by trauma-based mental health and addictions challenges.

Chefs’ Charity Dinner

Where: The Vancouver Club (915 West Hastings)
When: Thursday, November 16, 2017 6:00pm to 10:00pm
Tickets: Individual tickets are $250, and tables of eight are $2,000. Available for purchase online or call 604-329-9186 for more information.

Hosted by Fred Lee, the gala showcases a multi-course meal specially created by Vancouver Club Head Chef Sean Cousins, working in collaboration with Dino Renaerts (Bon Vivant Catering/Hollyburn Country Club), Shay Kelly (The Caterer) and Dr. Theresa Nicassio (author of “YUM: Plant Based Recipes for a Gluten-Free Diet), and Pastry Chef Saskia Nollen (Vancouver Club), as well as students from the Coast Mental Health Culinary Skills Training Program.

Fine wine, music and a lively auction featuring a Holland America cruise, Air Canada tickets, a luxury fishing trip adventure to Moutcha Bay Lodge and much more will round out the evening. Funds raised at the gala support Dan’s Legacy’s counselling and life-skills programs for youth affected by trauma-based mental health and addictions challenges.

About Dan’s Legacy

dans-legacy-ecThe Dan’s Legacy Foundation (Dan’s Legacy) was founded in memory of a promising and vibrant young man who fell victim to a sexual predator. As is common with victims of abuse, he turned to drugs to suppress the psychological pain of the experience. Stints in rehab only provided a partial solution. What was needed was counselling support to uncover the root of his addiction. Tragically, Dan relapsed and died from an overdose. He was nineteen years old.

Dan’s Legacy provides therapeutic counselling and life-skills intervention programs to youth battling mental health and addictions issues resulting from childhood trauma and abuse. In the past three years Dan’s Legacy has helped over 150 youth meet their educational, housing and life-goals.
