A host of top Montreal chefs and restaurants will unite for a collaborative dinner at the Rialto Theatre on Monday, September 21 to raise funds for Mile End Community Mission. The likes of Joe Beef, Hôtel Herman, Lawrence, Icehouse, Nora Gray, Hof Kelsten, Danny St-Pierre, Pâtisserie Rhubarbe, Les Chocolats de Chloé, Café Myriade, and Choice Harbour will be on hand for the event. RéZin Sélection, Ward & associés, Oenopole, Glou, Primavin, and Ghost Farm will provide beer and wine and The Barr Brothers will perform.
Mile End Community Mission is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organization and community centre working with members of the community who have been marginalized by society for a variety of reasons. The Facebook page for September's event states that "the Mission expects to serve 12,000 meals, fill 10,000 grocery bags, and provide countless essential services to its growing membership" this year alone. "Not just a soup kitchen, the Mission provides structure, purpose and meaning for its chronically poor, socially excluded and disadvantaged members. The Mile End Community Mission is a community hub that allows members to connect and support one another. Receiving only a small amount of their funding from government assistance, the Mission relies heavily on public donations and fundraising events to continue offering these crucial services."
Tickets for the event on September 21 cost $325—you can purchase them here (a tax receipt for $225 will be available).
