Toronto’s Shangri-La Ho­tel was dressed in red and gold for Fête Chi­noise: Luck & Rit­ual. Guests en­joyed dumplings as they pe­rused rooms themed around Chi­nese hol­i­days and tra­di­tions, like the Dragon Boat Fes­ti­val. The event, pro­duced by Palet­tera, brought in over $82,000 for the Markham Stouf­fville Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion and the Fu-Gen Theatre Com­pany.

Chan­tal Kre­vi­azuk daz­zled the crowd with a per­for­mance at the B.C. Women’s Hos­pi­tal Foun­da­tion’s Il­lu­mi­na­tions lun­cheon. At the Four Sea­sons Ho­tel Van­cou­ver, CTV’s Tamara Tag­gart shared that a record-break­ing $280,000 was raised, ben­e­fit­ing the Women’s Health Re­search In­sti­tute and the B.C. Women’s Cen­tre for Pelvic Pain and En­dometrio­sis.
