Foodies for a Cause – Table of Hope 2012

If you were in the ballroom at the Queen Elizabeth Hotel on May 22, 2012 you were probably witness to another great edition of the Table of Hope, benefiting the Share the Warmth Foundation. This annual event showcases Montreal’s hottest restaurants and wineries, and local celebs lend their culinary skills for a good cause. 

The evening’s VIPs were treated to a pre-dinner Patrons Cocktail and then the party moved into the main ballroom where over 40 restaurants had delicious samplings at the ready. The event showcases the city’s well established and popular eateries such as Moishes and L’Orchidée de Chine, but also allows guests to discover unfamiliar restaurants, amazing caterers and sample local wines.

Here’s the roundup of the night’s star-studded festivities:
