The seventh Great Jewelry Heist  in support of Bridgepoint Active Healthcare (part of Sinai Health System), took place in the ballroom of the prestigious Ritz-Carlton Hotel on October 27th, 2017. This elegant luncheon and auction of necklaces, bracelets, earings and rings donated by leading Toronto designers and jewelers, presented by CIBC, has been held annually to support Bridgepoint Active Healthcare; the only on the treatment of people with complex health conditions and part of Sinai Health System.

The EY Sparkling Reception started at 11 am where guests were able to view all the items up for sale in both the silent and live auctions. Fine jewels, vintage estate jewelry, stunning one-of-a-kind items, and pieces from luxury brand jewelers were showcased on tables in the Grand Foyer of the Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Women, and some men, from Toronto’s fashion, society and executive circles mixed and mingled while enjoying Perseco, wine or sparkling water. Passed hors-d’oeuvres were deluxe as well to reflect the event and the venue: foie gras on a macaroon, a spoon full of lobster salad, and a shot glass of truffled mushroom soup. We were called to the ballroom for lunch just before noon and were greeted by the sound of The Toronto All-Star Big Band. The ballroom décor, sponsored by Holt Renfrew, was done beautifully in warm tones of hot pink, orange, and gold. The Great Jewelry Heist 2017 began with a welcome speech from host Jeanne Becker who presented the event chair Amber Choudry, Managing Director of Debt Capital Markets at CIBC. The “Catch Me If You Can” was a Twitter fundraising campaign featuring a sautoir in vintage jade and citrine designed by Alan Anderson which was ‘stolen’ amongst ten influential Toronto women.

The lunch menu included a duo of chicken breast and tiger prawns on a bed of quinoa and farro risotto with a preserved lemon sauce accompanied by a chayote and pineapple slaw. Jewelry in the live auction was presented on stage after by the Guest Speaker, Louis de Melo, Chief Executive Officer of the Sinai Health Foundation. The highlight of the live auction was a yellow diamond ring valued at $82,000 but which sold for a fraction of that cost to one very lucky woman!
