Porridge for Parkinson's
2024 date TBD
Porridge for Parkinson’s® is an elegant morning fundraising event that features a brunch prepared and served by top Toronto chefs, a brunch-themed silent auction, and special guest speakers.
The first Porridge for Parkinson’s breakfast in Toronto was held in 2009 and has now become a biennial event. Together, we have raised over $1.1 million in net proceeds, thanks to hundreds of sponsors, donors, guests, volunteers, and of course, our chefs!
The proceeds from our events fund groundbreaking research into the cause and cure for Parkinson’s Disease. Since 2019, funds have been directed to the Parkinson’s Research Excellence Fund at the Edmond J Safra Program, at Krembil Brain Institute, Toronto Western Hospital, UHN.
