This September I participated in OneWalk for Princess Margaret Hospital. This has been a Lisa Shamai tradition over the years with our Rainbow Team. Because of Covid 19 we had to do the walk on our own instead of a group. I picked High Park to do my walk and it was a beautiful day to be out. Over the years the walk has helped Princess Margaret Hospital raise over $177,000,000.00 towards a cure for cancer. We are very happy to be a part of this. Also, a special thanks to our donors who have helped us once again to have a successful campaign. Mike Ryan


Lisa Shamai was not only the owner, operator and chef of this very successful and popular catering company but Lisa most often spent her very limited free-time participating in and hosting educational cooking classes, fundraising for a number of Health Food Organizations programs, Social services,  and many Cancer Research Fundraising events.

This year with the help of Sheila Wong, president of BBW International, Lisa’s Rainbow team raised close to $20,000 for princess Margret hospital’s walk to end all cancers.

Her accomplishments are long in list but here are some of the fine organizations and events that Lisa, her staff, friends and family have actively participated in:
