The 17th annual Eat to the Beat was held at the Roy Thomson Hall on Tuesday, Oct 16, 2012. The event brought together sixty of Canada’s top female chefs who donated their time & talent to raise money for Willow Breast Cancer Support Canada – a not-for-profit organization that offers free peer support to those who are coping with breast cancer.

The evening featured silent auction, wine, premium beer & spirits, and way too much amazing sweet & savoury food.
Breast cancer survivors were there to model fun, edible food-inspired corsets that they have created.
