#dinnerpartyYVR is returning this March 28, 2015. #dinnerpartyYVR is a charitable cooking event where 50 hobby chefs across Vancouver host simultaneous dinner parties for groups of four to six strangers, with 100% of each $40 ticket donated back to the host’s chosen charity.
#dinnerpartyYVR will be brought to you by Social Bites and Cressey Development Group. Following the success of the previous two years, #dinnerpartyYVR has almost doubled in size and expanded nationally to include Vancouverites who now live in Calgary, Montreal and Toronto. To date, the event has raised over $15,000 for local charities and organizations. Annika Reinhardt, Social Bites founder, expects that growth to continue.
Presenting partner Cressey Development Group returns for the second year and will be opening their doors so charities can become even more involved in the event. The Neil Squire Society will host a dinner in Cressey’s Mercer show suite, where ticket sales will directly support the empowerment of Canadians with disabilities through the use of computer-based assistive technologies, research and development, and employment programs.
Hosted by local celebrity chef and Top Chef Canada alum Clement Chan of Le Tigre, diners will be treated to a gourmet meal in Cressey’s stunning Meccanica penthouse. Joining Clement is 12-year old up-and-coming chef Liam Lewis, a #dinnerpartyYVR veteran. The two will bring together their unique styles to create a memorable menu featuring local and seasonal ingredients from Whole Foods Market.
This year, one of the city’s best-known celebrity chefs is teaming up with Vancouver’s youngest chef to host a special dinner party presented by Cressey Development Group. Together, Top Chef alum and Le Tigre owner Clement Chan and 12-year old up-and-comer and #dinnerpartyYVR veteran Liam Lewis, will bring together their unique styles to create a memorable menu for their lucky guests.
Meals also include admission to the Cressey After Party, hosted at Meccanica. Guests will enjoy beer and wine, courtesy of Serendipity Winery and Howe Sound Brewing, fresh cold-pressed organic juice from The Juicery Co., and desserts from various local eateries including Danica’s Cafe, Ten Ten Tapas and Heritage Bakery. Transportation to the After Party will be provided by Modo The Car Co-op. For more information and tickets, visit www.dinnerpartyYVR.com.
