Taste of Guelph, St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation’s signature garden party fundraiser, returned to an in-person format this year and raised over a record-breaking $180,000.
The 2022 Taste of Guelph, presented by Linamar, welcomed over 700 community members back to the grounds of St. Joseph’s Health Centre to sample the region’s finest restaurants, caterers, vintners, brewers and bakers. Guests were also invited to bid on exciting auction items and listen to the music of Black Water Trio – just in time to celebrate the 25th anniversary of this annual garden party fundraiser.
“It’s so great to bring Taste of Guelph back to our grounds where it belongs since all funds raised though the event help to purchase the medical equipment and technologies our care teams rely on to provide exemplary care,” says David Wormald, President, St. Joseph’s Health Centre Guelph. “We wish to thank our generous community for once again coming out for an afternoon of fabulous food and drink for a worthy cause.”
The COVID-19 Pandemic wreaked havoc on our healthcare system. But the shutdowns and social distancing also had a significant impact on the food and beverage industry. St. Joe’s was humbled by the support Taste of Guelph received by its much-needed vendors and partners. More than 40 local food and drink vendors volunteered their time, talent and tasty treats to support St. Joe’s long-standing fundraiser for foodies.
“Einstein’s has been attending Taste of Guelph for over 15 years,” says Rocky Mugford, owner of Einstein’s Café. “We value the connections that are built with our fellow vendors and guests at the event and we’re committed to donating our time and food knowing that the money raised is going to an important cause.”
Funds raised through the event enable the purchase of medical equipment to help care for patients in the Health Centre’s complex hospital care, rehabilitation, palliative and long-term care programs.
“We are so thankful to this incredible community and our generous sponsors, donors, volunteers, vendors and friends for coming together to make the 25th anniversary of this important fundraising event such a huge success,” says Sera Filice-Armenio, CEO, St. Joseph’s Health Centre Foundation Guelph. “We’re proud to say that Taste of Guelph has raised close to $1 million since 2015. The collective generosity of our community is truly making a difference and helping to ensure St. Joe’s will continue its mission of care for generations to come.”
It is with great pride that Linamar continues their long-standing support of St. Joseph’s Health Centre. We are thrilled to be the Presenting Sponsor for this year’s 25th anniversary of Taste of Guelph.
Funds raised through Taste of Guelph will help to purchase the medical equipment our care teams need as they continue providing exceptional rehabilitation, complex hospital care, palliative care and long term care to our community.
