About Eat to the Beat

High-calibre cuisine and the finest libations take centre stage at Eat to the Beat.

Entering it’s 23rd year, Eat to the Beat is a mecca for urban foodies who come to experience the best Ontario’s culinary scene has to offer. It is the only event in Canada that exclusively features the talent of 60 female chefs – women supporting women through the challenges that come with a breast cancer diagnosis.

Guests have the opportunity to enjoy specially prepared savoury and sweet dishes from 60 chefs, along with wine, beer and a selection of non alcoholic libations from the finest beverage purveyors.

Eat to the Beat was founded as a fundraising event for Willow Breast & Hereditary Cancer Support(Willow) by Lisa and Abigail Slater, sisters and business women who were inspired by the courage and strength of breast cancer survivors and the many people whose lives they knew had been affected by this disease.

Willow merged with the Canadian Breast Cancer Foundation(CBCF) in 2016, which in turn merged with the Canadian Cancer Society (CCS) in 2017. The result of this union is a bigger impact on cancer support programs and research across all types of cancer, including breast cancer. The new organization brings an expansion of the programs and services previously offered by Willow and CBCF.

The funds raised at Eat to the Beat will go directly towards supporting breast cancer support services. To learn more about these services, please visit cancer.ca.
