Chef and owner of L’Abattoir, Lee Cooper and his team made the decision to shift the focus of the No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews dinners towards a higher purpose at the beginning of 2019 and haven’t looked back since. “We had been searching for a way of making a larger impact for an organization that we believed in, so rather than making many small donations to many different causes throughout the year, we took our passion project, No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews and turned it into a fundraising program for a charity that we support wholeheartedly”, says Cooper of the shift.
On October 24, Cactus Club Cafe Chef Rob Feenie will be teaming up with the city’s most renowned chefs to present Chefs on Deck for Camp Goodtimes. The charity dinner will be hosted at Cactus Club Cafe’s iconic English Bay location with all ticket sales proceeds benefitting Canadian Cancer Society’s Camp Goodtimes.
A third and final instalment of the 2019 No. 1 Gaoler’s Mews dinners is planned for Friday November 8th and will see Iron Chef Canada’s Rob Feenie of Cactus Club Cafe behind the stove with L’Abattoir’s Chef Lee Cooper in a collaboration not to be missed. The pair will be cooking this intimate 8-seat dining affair in support of the BC Hospitality Foundation.
