sip & Savour Ontario launches new partnership with Houselink 

sip & Savour Ontario, an annual event featuring local wineries and chefs, is promoting a new pairing. Ontario's producers of fine food and VQA wines are staying focused on local as they join forces with Houselink, which provides homegrown housing solutions for people at risk of being homeless.

Houselink offers supportive housing and programs for people living with mental illness. With a goal of delivering quality of life to the people it serves, Houselink is groundbreaking in ensuring its residents and consumers play an active role in planning and decision-making.

"Houselink and sip & Savour Ontario share an important core belief," notes Tony Aspler, wine writer and partner of sip & Savour Ontario. "Both organizations recognize that quality of life is a local issue. We believe we derive the greatest benefit when we look to our own people and resources, be it for programs or for wines or food."

sip & Savour Ontario is planning a fundraiser in support of Houselink that will showcase more than 30 award-winning Ontario wineries, and regionally prepared food by top chefs. The event is to take place at Steam Whistle Brewing in Toronto on Wednesday, October 19, 2011.

Houselink owns 22 buildings in Toronto and supports over 500 people, including 60 families. Fundraising supports numerous programs geared towards mental health Recovery, including, community kitchens, employment opportunities, bursaries and social recreation activities.

"Houselink is proud to be partnering with sip & Savour Ontario. As a local charity, we are excited to collaborate and create a spectacular evening in October. The proceeds will provide new opportunities for individuals and families living with the impact of chronic mental illness and poverty," says Brian Davis, Executive Director of Houselink.

sip & Savour Ontario encourages consumer participation in the Ontario wine and food experience and plays a vital role in identifying the importance of a thriving culinary industry.
