The Gala des Grands Chefs is a gourmet experience worthy of the finest restaurants. Thanks to the commitment of business people, top chefs and their teams, the event combines gastronomy with professional networking.

Not only is it a great opportunity to get involved in your community and embody your corporate values but it’s also a wonderful way to forge new business relationships or to deepen them. Like thousands of professionals, join us for an unforgettable gastronomic evening and let’s show that together, life is bigger than cancer.

For this 15th edition, the Gala des Grands Chefs will take place on Saturday, September 14th, 2019 at the Hilton Lac-Leamy. Daniel Charron, a partner at Samson, will grace us as Honorary Chair of the event.

The Gala des Grands Chefs - Outaouais is a must-attend evening hosted by actor and singer Frédérick De Grandpré. Some 600 guests will come together to enjoy an unforgettable gourmet experience and to support the Canadian Cancer Society’s mission. Your generosity enables the CCS to fund groundbreaking research, support services for people with the disease, and cancer prevention programs.
