What is Happening?
For the Ultimate Foodie! The Brewer’s Plate auction offers unique experiences, luxury packages and celebrity meet and greet opportunities.
The proceeds from this extraordinary evening will support the work of Not Far From the Tree, an organization whose volunteers pick fruit from Torontos urban gardens and then share the free harvest with food banks and shelters. With your support they will expand their highly-successful programming to a low-income neighbourhood outside of the downtown core and engage a new community in gathering and sharing fruit.
A LiveBID auction is truly unique. It provides an exciting opportunity for bidders around the world to participate and win items as part of the Brewer’s Plate Live Auction!
