Harmony House’s Red & White Soirée

By on February 14, 2016

There’s nothing better than enjoying a beautiful evening of delectable nibbles, tasty drinks and a four-course meal prepared by Executive Chefs, all while enjoying the sultry sounds of a live performer in support of a great cause.

For the third year in a row, I have the pleasure of supporting Harmony House’s Red & White soirée. Harmony House is the only second-stage women’s shelter in Ottawa. It shelters survivors of domestic abuse as they transition into independence.

Harmony House relies on donations, sponsorship, and fundraising to help women and children. And, that is why the Red & White Gala is a great opportunity to not only support this noteworthy organization, but to also enjoy an evening of delicious food and entertainment. It’s also a fun and engaging way to sample first-hand some selected products from local vendors which are sure to please both your appetite and palate!


The featured chefs for this year’s tasty event are: Chef Ryan Edwards (Salt Dining Lounge), Chef Steve Harris (Two Six {ate} Restaurant) and Chef Sarah Farmer (Get Your Sweet Fix). The event emcees for the evening will be Melissa Lamb, Weather Anchor/Host of CTV Morning Live, and Sophie Moroz, Morning Show Host/Announcer on Ottawa’s New Country 94.
**For a sneak peak of the event, Executive Chef Ryan Edwards from Salt and Harmony House’s Fund Development Manager, Kerry Gervais will be on CTV Morning Live on March 10, 2016 to talk about the event. Chef Edwards will also execute a live culinary demo.

The stunningly beautiful Trafalgar Falls, located in the Trois Piton National Park!!😍😍

These famous twin waterfalls are a 20-minute drive from Dominica's capital, Roseau. It's a short 10 to 15 minute walk along a well-maintained path to the viewing platform, where you can photograph both falls.

Fun fact: The smaller waterfall has cool refreshing water, whereas the tall one is a hot spring.💧🔥

Dominica's natural beauty is endless!!😍
