If anything, Taste of Edmonton reinforced the belief that we love to eat. More and more foodies are searching for new experiences in outlying areas and they are popping up with regularity. The Morinville Festival Society has joined this exciting culinary trend to present the second annual Farm to Table Dinner on Aug. 22.
Compassion House Foundation is fundraising for breast cancer victims through a new initiative called Cup of Compassion. On Wednesday, May 27 every Second Cup location in Edmonton and surrounding areas will donate 50 cents from the sale of each beverage sold. Proceeds go to support Compassion House, a haven for women from northern Alberta travelling to Edmonton for breast cancer treatment. Sorrentino’s Compassion House first opened in 2002 with six guest suites that served hundreds of women during treatment and in the first stages of recovery.
