Event description

Description

Eating disorders are deadly illnesses, yet they remain heavily stigmatized. Stigma reinforces the cycle of shame and helplessness that accompany these fatal conditions. This prevents sick people from seeking the treatment they need to get better.

Hopewell Eating Disorder Support Centre will hold its signature fundraiser in the Cereal Barn at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum on Tuesday, September 19, 2017 that will bring people together to "break bread" and use this opportunity to further "break stigma.”

The concept for the evening is a sandwich showdown, featuring a roster of Ottawa's top chefs, and a panel of celebrity judges to crown the "Sandwich Sovereign of Ottawa!" The evening will be MC'd by Katherine Dines of MAJIC100.

Our accomplished chefs are: Stephen La Salle from Andaz Byward Market, Katie Brown Ardington from 24 Sussex, Louis Charest from Rideau Hall, and Joe Thottungal from Coconut Lagoon. The celebrity judge line-up will feature Kathy Smart, Margaret Dickenson, and Peter Hum.

There will also be a silent auction of exciting prizes available on-site, and a bar featuring local offerings.
