Virtual fundraiser set for Oct. 2


At a time of virtual fundraisers due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance has unveiled its virtual dinner party.

Harvest Moon – A Virtual Dinner Party Experience, will take place Oct. 2, and will be hosted by celebrity chef John Catucci, host of Food Network Canada’s Big Food Bucket List and the hit series You Gotta Eat Here!

The pre-dinner virtual gathering will feature samplings of local beer from Red Barn Brewing Co. of Blenheim.

There’s also a wine and cheese tasting and performance by a local band.

Guests will receive a meal box for two people, complete with all of the elements to make their dinner party experience a night to remember, including fresh produce provided by local Chatham-Kent farmers as part of the required ingredients.

“We are so excited to bring this new event concept to our community” Mary Lou Crowley, president and CEO of CKHA Foundation, said in a media release. “With full-scale gala-style events still not taking place, we had to put our creativity to work to introduce something different that people could get excited about and still helps us raise funds for health care in Chatham-Kent.”

Proceeds from the event will support the highest priority needs at CKHA, helping to invest in program innovation, life-saving equipment, and modernizing facilities.
