A Taste of France: une nuit fantastique!  

On September 29th, Toronto French School welcomed 150 guests for A Taste of France, a benefit in support of Dignitas International’s Aboriginal Health Partners Program. Initiated by the Consul General of France in Toronto, guests were treated to spectacular French cuisine prepared by some of the city’s finest French chefs – Didier Leroy, Pascal Geoffroy and Rodney Alleguede.

A live auction rounded out the evening, featuring spectacular pieces by the renowned artist Charles Pachter as well as Patrick Cruz, winner of the 2015 RBC Canadian Painting Competition.

In total, A Taste of France Raised $59,000 for our Aboriginal Health Partners Program, which aims to build greater health equity in remote First Nations Communities.

Our sincere thanks to Gala President Marc Trouyet, Consul General of France in Toronto, Gala Chairpersons Corinne Cayez and Josette Villavarayan Bardon and all Committee members.

Last but certainly not least: a special thanks to Champion Sponsors Dr. Noel Lee-Cheong, Ipsen Biopharmaceuticals Canada Inc., and TFS – Canada’s International School. Your support made this event possible. Thank you.
