18th Annual Grand Cru Culinary Wine Festival
October 27-29, 2022
Founded by Todd Halpern in 2005, Grand Cru Culinary Wine Festival is the largest of its kind in the world. The festival brings together the finest wine, gourmet cuisine, brightest minds in medical research, and UHN donors and sponsors. This year, Grand Cru featured wines from more than 90 vintners from around the world, 19 private gourmet dinners throughout the city prepared by some of the world’s most esteemed chefs, and participation from UHN clinicians and scientists who are advancing ground-breaking medical research and innovations.
UHN Foundation is proud to announce that the 2022 Grand Cru Culinary Wine Festival, presented by ECN Capital, has raised more than $59 million for ground-breaking medical research and innovations across emergency medicine, diabetes, cardiac and vascular, brain, surgery, stem cell and vision care at University Health Network (UHN).
Funds raised include a landmark $52-million donation by John and Myrna Daniels Foundation to construct Canada’s first purpose-built geriatric emergency medicine centre. Slated to open in 2025 at UHN’s Toronto Western Hospital, the Myrna Daniels Seniors Emergency Medicine Centre will be the first of its kind in the world, with every element of the space designed to address the unique needs of older adults alongside research and education programs.
Since its inception in 2005, Grand Cru has now raised more than $127 million in support of UHN programs.
