Last week, the Hyatt hotel held a fundraiser of Olympic proportion. Gold Medal Plates - deemed the "ultimate celebration of Canadian Excellence in food, wine, sport and community," was held on Nov 14th. The Vancouver version of this multi-city event featured wine and food by local restaurateurs that were paired up with Olympic host athletes. Keynote speeches, entertainment and more followed the tasting event and proceeds raised support the Canadian Olympic Foundation and the "Own the Podium 2010" and "Road to Excellence" initiatives.
