About The Event

This Kempenfelt Rotary fundraising gala is hosted at Tangle Creek Golf & Country Club, aided by our charitable partner, Grove Park Home. Taste the World promises great food, perfect beverage pairings and special new features. Music is a definite highlight, playing when the doors open until the wee hours of the morning. Expect even more value for our 400 guests and an incredible audience for our sponsors. Entertaining emcees, live and silent auctions and a few surprises await our guests. Taste the World is a Culinary Adventure; enjoy a global tasting experience while traveling around the beautiful Tangle Creek Golf & Country Club. At least 10 local restaurants graciously donate their staff and incredible cuisine representing countries from around the world and each is paired perfectly with beer or wine.

Since 2009, this one great evening has raised over $400,000 to help local charities. That’s what Rotary is all about: creating great events that raise funds to help our community! There are lots of ways for you to help; buy tickets, become a cash sponsor, partner with in-kind gifts, donate auction items, feature your restaurant.

Every year our auction company chooses two charities that we will donate our services to. Taste the World is my chosen event. I look forward to this creative, innovative and classy event each year. I am proud to be a part of an event that raises so much awareness and much needed funds for our community.

Taste the World is a beautiful opportunity to connect with the community and catch up with clients and friends. As entrepreneurs and budding philanthropists, this is our chance to give back and to put our best food forward. When we choose to be part of this event, we are fully committed and we create an exciting menu that I am proud to stand in front of. The Kempenfelt Rotary Club is a group of great folk working hard to support our community and we are pleased to support their efforts. Cheers!

I look forward to the Kempenfelt Rotary's Taste the World each year. It is a great chance to enjoy some of Barrie's finest restaurants and chefs. I love the relaxing atmosphere and getting a chance to mingle with lots of people who support our local charities. This is my chance to help the club raise funds, have some great food, listen to outstanding music and get a chance to bid on some interesting auction items. My wife and I attend this wonderful charity event each year.
