A Virtual Event with an at-home Gastronomic Experience

The 23rd Annual Valentine’s Ball benefitting the Teresa Dellar Palliative Care Residence was a huge success raising $500,300 net thanks to the generosity of close to 400 guests, sponsors and donors. Due to the ongoing pandemic restrictions, the event was held for a second year on a customized, interactive online platform coupled with an in-home gastronomic experience.


Guests enjoyed a four-course gourmet meal from Ristorante Beatrice delivered to their homes and participated in an interactive virtual online program that combined live in-studio and pre-recorded entertainment, exclusive musical performances, and special guests. 


At the helm of the evening’s program again this year were Yolande James, Executive Director, Diversity and Inclusion at Radio-Canada and Foundation Board member of the Residence, and Jamie Orchard, journalist and Senior Advisor, Public Relations & Media, VIA Rail Canada. Cole Pinnow, President of Pfizer Canada, served as Honorary President of the Ball. He highlighted the organization’s longstanding dedication to the Residence and shared a touching personal story.
