Wild Game Charity Dinner supports the OutCare Foundation and offers an experience like no other: a gourmet meal prepared by the couple who hunted the game
On September 28, 2013 Kornelia and Gary Lacey, a generous couple with a passion for gourmet cooking, opened their spectacular home in Westboro to 10 guests for an elegant dinner to raise funds in support of palliative care across our region.
Not only did Gary and Kornelia organize and host the Wild Game Charity Dinner, they prepared all the food that they personally hunted!
Guests were treated to an incredible 10-course dinner featuring assorted wild game canapés with champagne, wild game soup, sliced medallions of Canada goose roasted in Grand Marnier with herb stuffing, to name just a few of the courses.
The 5-hour dinner, which took place on Saturday evening at their home, raised over $2,000 for the OutCare Foundation which supports palliative care throughout our community.
Last month, the foundation announced its successful $380,000-telemedicine project connecting 12 palliative care sites serving over 6,000 patients annually.
The Lacey’s commitment to the palliative care cause comes at a time when it is desperately needed. Today, seven out of 10 of Canadians who need palliative care cannot access it. With seniors making up the fastest growing age group in our society the requirement for palliative care continues to grow and is becoming more urgent. Each of us may one day need this care for a loved one or ourselves.
