Best Bites is an annual gourmet garden party where some of Waterloo Region’s best chefs create and serve up delectable samples from their menus. Wineries and microbreweries from across southwestern Ontario attend to showcase and serve their products. Guests enjoy a leisurely afternoon by the water at the private scenic grounds of Shades Mills Conservation Area, under a big marquee tent.
Best Bites is a partnership fundraiser benefiting two great community organizations. Funds raised from the day’s event helps Cambridge Memorial Hospital to purchase essential medical equipment that is no longer funded with government dollars. It is only through community support that Ontario hospitals can provide the essential equipment and technology that their medical teams require to continue providing top quality health care. This year, funds from Best Bites will be directed to Expanded Mental Health Services.
Through this event and others, the Rotary Club of Cambridge (Preston-Hespeler) is able to provide funding for the Cambridge Self-Help Food Bank, our Grade 3 Literacy Program, ongoing stewardship of local parkland, and special assistance to children and seniors facing health challenges in our community.
