A Night to Savour: 2nd Annual ICRF Taste For Life Gala

ICRF’s 2nd annual “Taste for Life” gala was a dazzling delight, and a foodie’s dream come true. Over 500 young professionals gathered in support of this wonderful cause, expertly organized by the members of the New Leadership Division. 


As for the eats, guests were treated to much more than a taste. ICRF delivered a spectacular feast composed of Montreal’s most coveted hot spots, including Moishes’ famous coleslaw, Ryu’s savoury sushi, Dolcetto & Co tappas, Namos’ mouth-watering zucchini balls and, of course, Lester’s too-hot-to-handle smoked meat sandwiches.

Devine desserts by D’Amour et de Sucre was, literally, the icing on the cake, with an array of sweets almost too stunning to eat. 

Fabulous food wasn’t the only thing on the menu. Guests also sank their teeth into sweet beats, spun by DJ Tiguru, and an impressive silent auction boasting gift certificates to Milos and Bice, beautiful artwork and many more enticing offerings.  

This year, the event honoured Miriam Sultan Laine, an inspiring speaker and cancer survivor treated by ICRF research program grants.  

The ICRF New Leadership Division is made up of a group of young Montreal professionals who dedicate their time to creating non-profit events in an effort to fund cancer research. Since its inception, ICRF has raised more than $45 million and has funded over 1800 cancer research projects.
