Ontario Tire & Auto Service Centre Community News
For six years Pasta Festa has united Italian physicians from Trillium Health Centre, Board member Ralph Chiodo, President of Active Green + Ross Tire & Automotive Centre, Ethel Taylor, volunteer and Board member 'extrordinaire' and a community of generous supporters who enjoy good wine, good food, great company and a wonderful cause.
The results have exceeded all expectations! Pasta Festa surpassed its half-million dollar pledge to the Trillium capital campaign in 2007. This is recognized on a plaque in the Main Reception of Trillium’s Surgicentre at West Toronto – the largest free standing day surgery centre in North America.
Pasta Festa has now completed its 7th year in support of programs and equipment at Trillium. The Foundation is deeply grateful to Ralph, Ethel and all those who participate in this festive, annual event. When Trillium docs exchange their scalpels, stethoscopes and scrubs for serving spoons and aprons and pitch in to help with the feasting and fundraising – all the ingredients make for a tremendous evening.
