Stellar Chef Lineup Unveiled for the Scotiabank Feast of Fortune Charity Gala 2024

Vancouver,  BC – The Chinese Restaurant Awards is delighted to once again participate in the prestigious St. Paul’s Foundation’s Scotiabank Feast of Fortune Charity Gala, set to take place at JW Marriott Parq Vancouver on February 24th, 2024. Our stellar chef lineup will shine during the gala reception, contributing to St. Paul’s Foundation’s vital fundraising initiatives for advancing medical research at the new St. Paul’s Clinical Support and Research Centre on the Jim Pattison Medical Campus.

Since 2008, donors to Scotiabank Feast of Fortune have played a crucial role in raising over $12.2 million, supporting essential initiatives such as life-saving diagnostic tools, surgical equipment, and impactful research studies across Providence Health Care’s hospitals and care sites. As a longstanding partner, the Chinese Restaurant Awards has evolved into a signature collaborator of the Scotiabank Feast of Fortune, embodying our dedication to making a lasting impact on the future of medical advancements.

“We’re excited to partner with the Chinese Restaurant Awards to raise funds for the 17th annual Scotiabank Feast of Fortune event. This year, we are proud to raise funds for the Clinical Support and Research Centre – the first fully integrated, advanced medical research facility in Western Canada. Attached to the new St. Paul’s Hospital by a sky bridge, this purpose-built research and innovation complex will transform the lives of generations to come by expediting life-changing discoveries from bench to bedside and developing new treatments faster than ever before,” – Dick Vollet, President and CEO, St. Paul’s Foundation.

New wave culinary talents will present Chinese cuisine-inspired creations
Donors and guests attending Scotiabank Feast of Fortune charity gala are in for an extraordinary culinary journey. Crafted by the Chinese Restaurant Awards, a collaboration of five culinary talents will unveil delightful surprises to kick off the gala. This lineup underscores the Chinese Restaurant Awards’ ongoing commitment to showcasing the prowess of young and ambitious chefs.

Despite the chefs’ diverse culinary focuses, they will join forces to offer a Chinese-inspired gourmet experience at the gala reception, infused with their passion for showcasing their Chinese roots and heritage. The presentation will also draw inspiration from the upcoming Lantern Festival, marking the final day of Lunar New Year celebrations, offering a preview of the creative culinary delights traditionally savored on this festive occasion. This synchronicity is particularly fitting as the gala coincides with February 24, 2024, the very day of the Lunar New Year’s Lantern Festival.
