MONTREAL, March 29 /CNW Telbec/ - This Wednesday, on April 1, eight executive leaders will brave the heat in the kitchen at Ferreira Cafe during the 9th edition of the Executives' Gala. On the menu? Cocktails and an eight-course gastronomic feast to benefit the Center for International Studies and Cooperation (CECI). All proceeds will go directly to the Haiti Emergency campaign, which is helping to rebuild the country after it was devastated by an earthquake in January.
The loyal clientele of this Portuguese Peel Street institution and the top brass of the business world are joining together to ensure the success of this event that will provide much needed help to people in dire need. A man of heartfelt passion, Carlos Ferreira was thrilled to learn that all the tickets have already sold out, guaranteeing that a significant contribution will be made to a cause that is close to his heart.
