Dan’s Legacy Chefs’ Charity Dinner – Win Tickets

Comments 42 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Tickets are selling out fast for Dan’s Legacy’s 9th Annual Chefs’ Charity Dinner presented by BCGEU, and it’s an event you don’t want to miss! This unique fundraiser, taking place at the Shaughnessy Restaurant at VanDusen Garden, features four guest chefs preparing signature dishes only using surplus food.

All funds raised go towards Dan’s Legacy’s trauma-informed counselling and life-skills programs for youth at risk in Vancouver.

Dans Legacy Chefs Charity Dinner

Dan’s Legacy Chefs’ Charity Dinner

  • When: Saturday, November 5, 2022
    • 6:00pm Reception & Silent Auction, 7:00pm Dinner & Program
  • Where: Shaughnessy Restaurant at VanDusen Botanical Garden (5251 Oak Street, Vancouver)
  • Tickets: Available online now starting at $100

Dan’s Legacy works primarily with youth who grew up in foster care, most of whom don’t have friends or family to turn to for support. Counselling, wrap-around programs and connecting youth to community are some of the ways Dan’s Legacy is closing the gap in mental health services to youth.

The organization goes directly to the youth wherever they are, they aim to have a no-wait list, and all of their services are free. They also partner with 15 other organizations across Metro Vancouver and Whistler that provide services to youth.

Leo-nominated Emcee Erin Cebula will host for a fun-filled evening of food, entertainment and community connections.

No other organization in Metro Vancouver does what Dan’s Legacy does and they have an over 50% success rate in helping youth to stabilize, and begin working towards their education, employment and recovery goals.

In the past year, they have helped over 450 youth overcome their mental health and addiction challenges and lead productive and fulfilling lives.

Purchase your tickets now and see what Chef Matthew Phillip (Shaughnessy Restaurant), Chef Andrew George (Industry Training Authority), Chef Luke Willingdon (Dan’s Legacy), and Pastry Chef Alannah Peddie (Frolic & Forage Catering + Cakery) have whipped up for this fundraiser. Each signature dish will be created using recovered food donated by local growers and grocery chains.

    As a teacher with a 43 year career, Canada has no idea the trauma that our own Canadian children have experienced. Nice to see that some help those in our own backyard, instead of looking far further afield! Canadian Teachers and Social Workers need help.
