Help Grapes for Humanity Help Haiti

By / Magazine / June 9th, 2010 / Like

On Thursday October 7th, 2010 Grapes for Humanity, in association with the French Consulate, Remoissenet Père et Fils and The Four Seasons Hotel, will be holding a fine wine dinner and live auction of fine wines at The Four Seasons Hotel in Toronto (see details below). All proceeds from the event will be directed to assisting the children of Haiti, specifically via the Haiti Hospital Appeal (a UK-based NGO that has been working in Haiti since 2005). This effort will especially support children who need prosthetic assistance. Apart from your presence at the event, we would be very grateful if you would donate some fine wine for the auction.

The mission of Grapes for Humanity is to raise funds to benefit humanitarian causes around the world with the assistance of the international wine community. The group’s focus is to, ultimately, provide a better quality of life for victims and survivors of disasters and personal tragedies, thus helping these victims become self-sufficient citizens of the world. Funds are raised through various international wine events, wine auctions, special wine projects and personal and website donations.
