A beautiful cool evening and the art-deco industrial home of Junction Craft Brewing welcomed revellers for the successful Taste of Spain fundraiser in support of Friends of Sorauren Park and Friends of Charles G. Williams Park on September 8.

Thanks to everyone who attended, sponsored, donated, volunteered and worked the event, a magical evening.

Funds raised will support free programming at Sorauren Park and playground renovations at Charles G. Williams Park.

Produced by Friends of Sorauren Park and presented by Junction Craft Brewing, the event started with a shuttle bus from the park, sponsored by Pollocks Home Hardware. Following the lively cocktail hour, diners enjoyed a wonderful meal prepared by Chef Bruno Beaudoin (GM, Novotel Ottawa) and Executive Chef David Neinstein (Barque Smokehouse). Throughout, everyone was entertained by the Jorge Miguel Flamenco Ensemble. The Roncesvalles Pass and the hamlet of Sorauren are both places in Spain, the names coming to Toronto via settler Colonel Walter O’Hara following his Napoleonic War exploits.

Such an event cannot happen without the support of the many individuals, organizations and local businesses who purchased tickets, as well as our sponsors and donors. Thank you.
