Here’s how it works: Hobby chefs — aka people who love to cook and entertain — host dinner parties across Vancouver in support of their favourite charities. Diners (aka you!) select a meal to attend and have an awesome night out, meeting new friends, and then joining up with all of the other dinner party guests, Hobby Chefs, charity representatives and partners at the after party.Find a meal!
DinnerPartyYVR, a Social Bites production, was founded in 2013. To date, the annual event has raised more than $30,000 for charities. DinnerPartyYVR has connected hundreds of Hobby Chefs, diners, charities, and partners around the dinner table for great conservations, marvelous meals, and a whole lot of fun.
After a not so chance meeting at a dining event in 2009, Annika Reinhardt (Social Impact Creator) and Crystal Henrickson (Community Builder) teamed up as business buddies to bring the biggest, boldest, and most philanthropic dinner party to Vancouver, and bam, DinnerPartyYVR was born.
Home cooks from Vancouver host a delicious meal all in support of their favourite charity. Hobby chefs welcome old and new friends as dinner guests into their homes knowing that those who dine contribute directly to their chosen charity.
