June 18, 2019 | DoubleTree by Hilton London The Meal

Join us for the 37th consecutive year, a group of the most talented Chefs in London and area will once again serve a feast of culinary delights to approximately 400 guests in support of Diabetes Canada. Known simply as The Meal, this fundraiser will be hosted once again at the DoubleTree by Hilton London, home of Executive Chef Todd Pylypiw, on Sunday, April 28th, 2019.

Our co-emcees for the evening will be Julie Atchison and Nick Paparella of Bell Media.

Prior to dinner, there is a reception including a martini luge created from an ice sculpture serving as a centerpiece.

A scrumptious sit-down dinner follows and includes red and white wines carefully selected to complement the courses that are being served.

Don’t be disappointed. Tickets go quickly and in past years, it has been a SOLD OUT evening.
