The Springs / Growing Chefs! Ontario FUNdraising Dinner

Wednesday, April 17, 2013

We are very excited to announce that Growing Chefs! Ontario and The Springs Restaurant are again teaming up to host the 2013 Classroom Gardening Project Fundraising Dinner.

The Dinner will be held at The Springs, 310 SpringBank Dr. -  on Sunday May 5th, 6:00pm

Admission will be $85 and will once again feature a four-course dinner sourced and prepared by Chef Andrew Wolwowicz and his elite team at The Springs.

To make your reservation by phone, call: 226-700-2061, or you can reserve your seat in person at The Springs Restaurant. In person reservations must be made by cash or cheque made out to "Growing Chefs! Ontario". Last year's dinner sold out more than a week in advance, so don't wait, reserve your seat today! 

The Classroom Gardening Project sees local chef volunteers working with elementary schools to grow in-class windowsill vegetable gardens. The students learn about healthy foods by cooking the vegetables they grow right in the classroom!

 The Springs’ chef Andrew Wolwowicz was a volunteer in the first Growing Chefs! Classroom Gardening Project in 2008 and currently sits as a member of the Board Of Directors. His dedication to Food Education is matched by his commitment to his restaurant, his food and his sense of community.

 “Chef Wolwowicz has been working with Growing Chefs! Ontario since it’s inception. He has been involved in it’s growth in so many different ways. He has helped pilot several of our programs and recruited many of our returning volunteers. He is one of those very few chefs who is both inspiring and fun to work with – plus his food is amazing - I can’t wait to see what he puts together for us May 5th.” says Andrew Fleet, G.C.O Executive Director.

For the past year and a half, The Springs has been getting rave reviews – and there is a reason for it.

 “The Springs is well on it’s way to being acknowledged as a regional culinary landmark “ -Bryan Lavery – Eat Drink Magazine, Feb, 2012. 

For those of you who have not yet tried this fantastic new restaurant – this is your chance!  Come join us May 5th and help us get kids excited about wholesome healthy food!

Hope to see you there!
