Food Fight : Come Together for a Friend on May 19


Food Fight : Come Together for a Friend

Food Fight is a fundraiser for fellow industry peer and friend, Owen Lightly, who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer. He and his partner in life and in business, Naomi Horii, are facing a tough time ahead as they fight the battle against cancer. Together they are a strong and determined team, but it will be a difficult journey to recovery, and they will need your help. On behalf of Owen and Naomi, family and friends have come together to throw a benefit for him. Your contribution will help them get the best support they need. Owen is about to start treatment, and we want to cheer him on. We want to show him that we support him, and that HE CAN DO IT – he can win this!
Food Fight will take place on May 19 at the Vancouver Urban Winery. You are invited to come and enjoy a casual get together featuring local chefs, bartenders, music, silent auction, and more. 100% of the ticket sales and proceeds of this fundraiser will go directly to Owen. If you are unable to attend, consider buying a ticket anyway, or adding a donation on top of your ticket. Every little bit helps.
Tickets include a welcome cocktail and canapes by many industry friends of Butter on the Endive.
The bar will be by donation, so please bring cash. Also, please bring a warm heart, smiles, and your dancing shoes.
