Eat to the Beat returns for the 23rd annual culinary gala, featuring 60 top female chefs while raising funds in support of breast cancer. The event conveys a powerful message and the strong support for women through the challenges. The event took place at Roy Thompson Hall, sponsored by the Canadian Cancer Society GTA (CCS), filled with great food, drinks, and fun for this great cause as proceeds are directed to CCS programs and services to help support anyone living with breast cancer…

On October 27th, Eat to the Beat was once again held at Toronto’s Roy Thompson Hall. The 2015 edition of this foodie-lovers-dream event marks its 20th year. Since its inception, over $3.7 million has been raised for Willow Breast and Hereditary Cancer Support, a non-for-profit organization offering peer support for anyone coping with breast cancer.

Along with all of the red carpets, films, and parties, the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF) comes with some pretty “suite” perks for both celebrities and the media who write about them.

When the stars are in town, they get the star treatment at an assortment of suites that are fully stocked with all of the latest products, technology, fashion, and sweets.

The 19th edition of Eat to the Beat – held on October 21st at Roy Thompson Hall – had extra significance this year, as Willow Breast & Hereditary Cancer Support was also celebrating its 20th birthday. Eat to the Beat is an important fundraising and awareness event for Willow, having raised more than $3.5 million in the past twenty years.

Where can you sample delectable fare in the presence of 60 beautiful female chefs? At Eat to the Beat of course. This year’s 18th edition was bigger than ever and it was all for a worthy cause. Funds raised went to benefit Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada, a non-profit organization which offers support to those afflicted by the disease.
