Eat to the Beat featured a mix of sweet and savoury foods, wines, beers and cocktails at individual stations. A few of our favourite restaurants with their star female chefs were there including: Mildred's Temple Kitchen, Frank Restaurant, Khao San Road and Crush Wine Bar.
A favourite element that we love about this event are the breast cancer survivors who model original food-inspired corsets that they have created. The evening also included music, a silent auction and a raffle draw for a chance to win some great prizes including a $5000 GE Monogram gift card!
Eat to the Beat has raised more than $3.2 million for Willow and 80% of the proceeds from the event go right back to the organization. The money helps to fund initiatives like Willow's toll-free helpline and training women to run support groups in their communities in-person and online.
An estimated 22,000+ women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in 2012 alone. The Hip + Urban Girl's Guide was there to show our support for all the amazing female talent under one roof and for the important work that Willow provides for women in need on a national level.
