Colour Your Palate.

The secret ingredient is … yellow? Victoria’s version of the Iron Chef with a twist is the annual signature fundraising event for the artsREACH program. The event pits local chefs against each other to create a colour-inspired canapé, using a randomly drawn colour. Colours in previous draws include: yellow, blue, red, purple, orange, and green.

With their colour drawn one month before the event, chefs select their ingredients, experiment and perfect their canapé before the competition.

At the event, professional judges blind-taste and vote for winners in two categories: “Best Tasting Creation” and “Most Colourful Creation.” Guests receive a complimentary glass of wine or beer, visit each chef’s station and sample each canapé. Guests vote for their favourite canapé as part of the “People’s Choice” award, bid in the Silent Auction and can win a fabulous door prize!

This year’s event is at 5:30 pm on May 11, 2016 at the University Club, University of Victoria. Tickets are $65 per person.

The Oceanside Grandmothers to Grandmothers is just one of more than 225 groups of Canadian grandmothers answering the call to action from the Stephen Lewis Foundation.  Money raised by these groups—$7 million nationwide thus far—goes to help African grandmothers raise the orphans of AIDS.   It accomplishes this by funding community-level organizations in 15 sub-Saharan African countries for housing, food, transportation, micro-credit grants, grief counselling and school fees for the grandchildren.
