Toast to the Coast
Friday, October 22, 2010 | 7:30 â€“ 10:30 pm | Vancouver Aquarium | Tickets $75
Fair warning, dear friends! As with our previous three, the 4th annual Toast to the Coast will sell-out. The good news? Weâ€™ve expanded the space, meaning this year we can welcome 500 lovers of food and wine to experience the magical backdrop of the Aquarium at night. (Last yearâ€™s capacity of 350 just didnâ€™t cut it and left too many broken hearts at the door.)
But please, secure your tickets now to avoid disappointment. You wonâ€™t want to miss one of our cityâ€™s rare gala eventsâ€”a classic, put-on-the-glitz fundraiser but one with a modern, urban edge that reflects the energy of the Vancouver cityscape.
From black-tie to tie-dye, this is one of those special nights where demographics merge to celebrate great wine, fine foodâ€”and most importantâ€”the greater social conscience that has made Toast to the Coast one of the Aquariumâ€™s top fundraising events in support of its conservation and education programs.
We owe it all to our guests, who support the Aquarium with their ticket purchase and also by taking part in the Toast to the Coast silent auction and raffle; and we owe it all to our sponsors and partnersâ€”with a special shout-out to Presenting Sponsor CIBCâ€”who donate those same raffle and auction items that help to make it such a fun and exciting evening.
The wine? The very best of BC vineyards. The food? A selection of Vancouverâ€™s top restaurants will provide dishes that are not only tantalizing and savory but also sustainable, as all Toast to the Coast restaurants are members of Ocean Wise, the Aquariumâ€™s sustainable seafood program.
This yearâ€™s wines include Blasted Church, Dunham and Froese, Saturna Island, Desert Hills and Township 7 among many more; while chefs from several of Vancouver favourite eateries will work their magic all night long. Againâ€”this is your final warning! â€”book your tickets now. This hot autumn night is not to be missed!
