eat to the beat!

Eat To The Beat - October 18, 2011 - Roy Thomson Hall
Dufflet Rosenberg shares why Dufflet Pastries supports this event every year.

From their website ... 

"Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada’s annual fundraising gala, Eat to the Beat, features over 60 of Canada’s finest female chefs – all gathered in support of Willow’s free programs and services.

Highlighted as one of Toronto’s top 10 events by BizBash magazine, Eat to the Beat has raised more than $3.1 million for Willow.

This year we are focusing on locally grown, sustainable, seasonal foods and will include “The County Chicks” with the best chefs, cheese makers, farmers and winemakers from the Prince Edward County region.

Over 23,600 women are diagnosed with breast cancer in Canada every year. From the individual diagnosed, to their family, friends and caregivers, Willow provides free support and information today for those who cannot wait for tomorrow’s cure.

By supporting Willow’s Eat to the Beat, you improve the quality of life for breast cancer patients and their friends and family today. Together we will make sure no one needs to face breast cancer alone."
