About 200 people attended Thursday night’s La Soirée chocolatée fundraiser in support of the St-Boniface Hospital Foundation.
Guests indulged on a selection of chocolate desserts, hors d’oeuvres, fine wines and premium martinis, while having the opportunity to bid on a selection of auction prizes.
One of the prizes include a trip for two to the Windy City to meet Chicago Blackhawks captain Jonathan Toews.
Last year, $95,000 was raised for patient care and medical research. Organizers hoped to exceed that amount this year. The final amount raised wasn’t immediately available.
UPDATE: June 15, 2011 — $90,000 was raised during the annual event.
