3rd Annual Lunch with Margaret & George presented by BMO Financial at the AGO LE FEU de ALTUZARRA Photography by REGEN CHEN The 3rd annual Lunch with Margaret & George presented by BMO Financial took place recently at the AGO featuring designer Altuzarra. Co-Chairs Lisa and George Corbo and Honorary Patron Emmanuelle Gattuso and their dedicated committee raised more than $200,000 to benefit Personalized Cancer Medicine at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre. This amount was matched by an anonymous donor which allowed Princess Margaret Cancer Centre to purchase as Fluigidm Access Array machine to sequence genes for breast cancer mutations to ensure the best treatment possible. The glittery lunch was the reflection of 11 crystal chandeliers and crystal centerpieces sparkling in the room. Guests watched artist Carlos Delgado paint during lunch and one lucky guest took home his work. A Zagliani purse donated by George C. and diamond earrings donated by Myles Mindham were the top prizes – and guests enjoyed Believe It make up – mascara and gold powder especially created for the event. Nada Ristich of BMO Financial was the presenting sponsor. Interac, Burgundy Asset Management and Emmanuelle Gattuso were this year’s Gold Sponsors. Designer sponsor once again was The Rosen Family Foundation. Civello / Aveda provided all the hair and makeup for the models. Guests include Ken Jesudian and Jessica Coronios of Burgundy Asset Management, Cat Fidani, Melissa Martin of Telus, Dina Iezzi of Therapure BioPharma, Peta and Sean Boyd, Donna Slaight, the Policaro Auto Family, Katherine Newman, Melanie McCaig, John and Sheri Munro.
