MONTREAL, Nov. 5, 2015 /CNW Telbec/ - Tonight, 440 guests gathered for The Leucan Experience, a one-of-a-kind gastronomic benefit evening to support cancer-stricken children. Sold out for several weeks now, this popular corporate event raised $270,000 to help Leucan pursue its front-line role in support of children with cancer.
Isabelle Racicot hosted this evening with great emotion. The menu was created under the theme "the flavours of our childhood" by guest chef Jonathan Garnier, chef and co-owner of La Guilde Culinaire (Cooking School | Boutique | Catering). The wines served with the courses were carefully selected by Élyse Lambert, MS, Best Sommelier of Canada 2015. Leucan extends its warmest thanks to the three of them.
