Cuisine & Cuvée 2020: Thank You!

Sep 21, 2020

The 20th anniversary of Cuisine & Cuvée, presented by The Co-operators, was unlike any other signature fundraising event before. Due to COVID-19 restrictions this year, we went digital – digital & delectable to be exact. With this new, exciting format, Providence Healthcare Foundation raised an incredible $200,000 (net) for Providence Healthcare’s patients, residents, clients and staff! The essential dollars raised during this event will ensure Providence can continue to offer the best care experiences for all those we serve.

Guests participated in the livestream event from the comforts of home. The star of the event was Celebrity Chef Susur Lee who led an exclusive cooking demonstration of a recipe he created just for Cuisine & Cuvée guests. Kristen Barnhisel, acclaimed winemaker from J. Lohr Vineyards & Wines led a wine tasting with a red and white vintage paired exquisitely with Chef’s dish. And our host for the evening, Kevin Brauch, entertained us from beginning to end.

This event was made possible because of our sponsors, donors, guests, vendors, partners, volunteers and friends. Thank you for your support during this very special year. Not only did we celebrate a milestone achievement – 20 years of Cuisine & Cuvée – but we celebrated, safely, in the midst of a pandemic.

A special thank you to our Cuisine & Cuvée planning committee whose constant support, exceptional expertise and overall enthusiasm, made the event unforgettable!

Congratulations to everyone that won our luxurious silent auction items and door prizes. This year’s online silent auction featuring fine wines, one-of-a-kind experiences and beautiful jewelry, raised over $30,000.

With this year’s event behind us, we look forward to next year’s Cuisine & Cuvée on Friday, June 4, 2021. We hope you’ll join us for what we know will be another exciting evening!
