2 New Events coming this spring

An Exclusive Dinner Series

Curated by William Cheng and hosted by prominent leaders of the Toronto community, Chefs' Circle supports innovative and life-saving heart research at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Chefs’ Circle welcomes members of Toronto’s vibrant philanthropic community to a series of private, one-of-a-kind evenings, featuring exquisite menus presented by award-winning Michelin star chefs from around the world.

About the Cause

Chefs’ Circle is hosted in support of the Jack Tu Chair in Cardiovascular Research at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. Dr. Tu was among the first to examine how ethnicity may influence heart disease. The Jack Tu Chair continues his work, exploring the factors at play behind the recent rise of heart disease in communities who once had little risk. This emerging new research promises to personalize cardiac and vascular care and transform the way cardiology is practised – well beyond Sunnybrook.
