Scotiabank Feast of Fortune 2023

We are thrilled to announce the 2023 Scotiabank Feast of Fortune raised a record-breaking $3.58 million on February 11!

Thank you to all guests, donors, and sponsors for making this remarkable achievement possible. We are grateful for your support.

Along with a generous anonymous gift of $888,000, the exciting twist of the evening was when two donors – Peter Bull, a Providence Health Care board member, Chairman of The West Pender Property Group, and the President of P.M. Bull & Company Ltd., and Terry Hui, President and CEO of Concord Pacific‎ Developments Inc. – stood up and spontaneously pledged $1 million each, a move that received a standing ovation.

Give today to the Scotiabank Feast of Fortune

Since 2008, donors like you have helped raise over $12.2 million to fund life-saving diagnostic tools, surgical equipment, research studies, and so much more.

While much has changed in the 16 years since our very first Scotiabank Feast of Fortune, one thing has remained steadfast: the community’s generous, ongoing support of St. Paul’s Foundation and Scotiabank Feast of Fortune. Thank you!

Exciting live performances

At the 2023 gala, a traditional lion dance ushered in the Year of the Rabbit and brought both prosperity and good luck to guests. Silk Road Music – a JUNO-nominated and West Coast Music Award-winning ensemble – filled the room with a captivating Chinese-Western musical fusion.

Attendees also enjoyed a performance by Les 7 Doigts (The 7 Fingers). Combining acrobatics and theatricality to create intricate choreography with superhuman skills, this Montreal-based group performed contemporary circus at the highest level.

Unique to Scotiabank Feast of Fortune gala, guests also had the opportunity to taste signature dishes from Chinese Restaurant Award-winning chefs.

We were proud to welcome: Chef Li Bo from Fish Man; Top Chef Canada runner-up, Chef Deseree Lo; Chef Leo Wang from Chang ‘An; Chef Toby Chen from L’Abattoir; and Executive Chef William Lew from Club Versante.  

For those wanting to give the Gift of Fortune to further brighten the New Year, there are still fantastic options on offer – with partial proceeds donated to St. Paul’s Foundation.
