Back for its sixth year, Dan’s Legacy Foundation will be hosting its Annual Chef’s Charity dinner for mental illness awareness.
Dan’s Legacy Foundation is a non-profit organization that provides therapeutic counselling and life-skills intervention programs to youth affected by mental health challenges, including depression, anxiety, sleeping, and eating disorders and self-medicating issues, resulting from childhood trauma and abuse.
The foundation works one-on-one with clients who are referred to them through a variety of channels and provides services for free.
This year’s charity dinner will take place at the Surrey City Hall atrium on November 2 and is organized to thank the community for its support and celebrate the remarkable achievements of its youth clients.
Chefs Bruce Nollert and Chef TJ Conwi (Ono Vancouver), Warren Chow (Juniper Kitchen & Bar), Shay Kelly (The Caterer) and Alannah Peddie (Cakes by Peddie) will be cooking up a delicious meal created from surplus food. The event will be hosted by acclaimed CBC Vancouver journalist Angela Sterritt.
The majority of the foundation’s clients are youth with little to no family support systems and who have grown up primarily in foster care and group homes, or who are homeless.
Funds raised at the gala go towards Dan’s Legacy’s counselling and life-skills intervention programs for at-risk youth including a weekly fitness program with a therapist, a weekly food bank and Sunday community dinner outreach program, and land-based intervention therapy for our Indigenous clients, most of whom are completely disconnected from their home communities and culture.
Tickets for this year’s gala can be purchased online.
When: Saturday, November 2, 2019
Where: Atrium of Surrey City Hall — 13450 104 Avenue Surrey, BC
Tickets: Available online
