Event- Fashion – Food – Lifestyle
The sold-out 2013 Heart & Soul UnGala, in honour of Save a Child’s Heart Foundation, was held at the Drake Hotel. It was a big success, raising over $500,000.00 for the Israeli-based organization that provides free heart surgery for children throughout the developing world and trains local medical staff to handle heart conditions.
The UnGala featured performances by local bands, Low Overhead and Slice of Life, who entertained everyone with their classic rock covers. The event was held on all floors of the Drake hotel, which each area devoted to different food stations and passed hors d’oeuvres. The sushi bar featured heart-shaped sushi rolls in honour of the evening. Among the dishes we tasted were smoked salmon crostini, tuna tartare, lamb chops, chicken drumettes, grilled cheese, mac n cheese, and poutine. The other stations featured BBQ and gourmet tacos. The rooftop Sky Yard had a fire pit to make homemade s’mores which was a big hit.
Royal De Versailles donated a $9000.00 diamond necklace which was won by one lucky guest.
