I finally reached someone at the Grocery Foundation to find out about the SuperGala fundraiser for Crohn’s & Colitis I blogged about. She told me, “We do not advertise the gala because the tickets are sold through the retailers and not to the public. We only showcase the gala on the website after it’s over.”
Upon further questioning, she revealed that the head offices of Sobeys, Loblaws, A&P etc. sell the tickets to their suppliers, not the public. Oh, and they are $700 each.
Looks like my husband and I will instead spend $25 apiece to attend Taste of Clarkson, a winter promotion among several restaurants in nearby Mississauga. We’ll make a donation directly to CCFC.
