Signature fundraising event raises $830,376 in support of patient care at HSC Winnipeg

Efharisto (thank you!) to all Savour Greece guests and supporters who made the HSC Foundation’s signature fundraising event a resounding success.

Savour Greece: Wine & Food Experience, presented by Garcea Group of Companies, was an unforgettable celebration of community, culture, and compassion. On February 24, a sold-out crowd of nearly 800 guests raised $830,376 to improve patient care at HSC, Manitoba’s hospital. Fundraising efforts included $228,773 that will help purchase new, state-of-the-art indocyanine green angiography equipment.

From the lively music of the Big City All Star Band to the delectable Greek cuisine, to the fine wines, and the vibrant décor, guests were transported to the picturesque landscapes of Greece.

The Big City All Star Band kept guests grooving all night long!

Guests participated in a riveting live auction that included a trip to Greece before trying their luck on a raffle and online auction all in support of innovation and excellence at HSC.

A colossal thank-you goes out to all of the guests, partners, Savour Committee members, and volunteers, whose enthusiasm and generosity made the event truly special.

The Zeid Family (Zeid Family Food Fare) is a Savour Registration Partner and a longstanding supporter of the HSC Foundation.

We’ll see you at next year’s Savour: Wine & Food Experience on February 22, 2025, as we travel to the vibrant and diverse country of New Zealand!
