3rd Annual Dinner at the Farm: A Night of Culinary Enchantment
In Support of Black Creek Community Farm
Thursday, September 12, 2019 | 6 pm – 9 pm
The 3rd annual Dinner at the Farm – A Night of Culinary Enchantment will bring together premier chefs from across the GTA, locally grown fruits and vegetables, a great lineup of live music and al fresco dining! This will be a one-of-a-kind fund-raiser for Black Creek Community Farm, and we would love to count on your support.
Tickets include all food, beverages, and entertainment. Acclaimed chefs will be preparing a fabulous tapas-style meal using BCCF’s very own fresh, organic vegetables. Gluten-free and vegan options will be available, as well as plenty of choice for omnivores.
Proceeds help us provide fresh, affordable produce and high quality programming to our community.
A charitable tax receipt will be issued on ticket purchases for a portion of the ticket price. Donations will receive a charitable tax receipt for the full donation amount. Tax receipts are issued by FoodShare Toronto.
