OJoe Canavan, a great supporter of Grapes for Humanity, invited eleven of his friends to join him at Barberian’s Steak House on Elm Street, Toronto, for this fund-raiser dinner. The celebrity guests were Geddy Lee and Alex Liveson of Rush who regaled the company with stories of their touring and recording. The wine flowed…like wine and Barberian’s owner, Arron Barberian pledged $2,000 to the cause: the construction of a new home for street kids in Moshi, Tanzania.

On Monday, October 26th, 2015, Grapes for Humanity held an intimate dinner hosted by Gaia Gaja at George Brown’s The Chef’s House in Toronto. Following a champagne reception, graced by the presence of the Consul General of Italy, Giuseppe Pastorelli, Gaia led off with an eloquent presentation of the family's wineries in Piemonte and Tuscany. (The village of Barbaresco, where the Gaja family lives, has, apparently, 600 inhabitants and 100 wineries!)...
In recognition of the contribution that Geddy Lee has made to Grapes for Humanity, the Board of Directors, created a scholarship in his name, in perpetuity, for a second year student in winemaking at Niagara College. The recipient in 2015 was Christian Scagnetti, pictured here with Helen Armstrong, Niagara College Foundation Development Officer.
