Valentine’s Day, which also happens to be former Mississauga Mayor Hazel McCallion’s birthday, is going to look a little different this year. Dinner out is a no-go, but thanks to Chef Massimo Capra and our friends at Capra’s Kitchen, you can have an exquisite Valentine’s Day/Hazel McCallion Day meal right at home – and help preserve nature in the city!
When you preorder a meal from Capra’s Kitchen’s special St. Valentine menu and pick it up from the restaurant on Sunday, Feb. 14, a portion of proceeds will be donated to The Riverwood Conservancy (TRC), the charity that provides programs and direction for 150 acres of urban nature reserve in the heart of Mississauga. Hazel McCallion, a TRC patron, often refers to Riverwood as “the gem of the city.”
Through her long and distinguished political career, she never forgot the importance of connecting the residents of Mississauga to the beauty of nature. You can help keep those connections alive while celebrating Valentine’s Day and Hazel McCallion’s 100th birthday! And you’ll support a local small business in the process. What’s not to love?
A three-course dinner costs $80 per person (plus tax), and a three course vegetarian/vegan dinner costs $70 per person (plus tax). All orders should be placed online at capraskitchen.com. Orders must be placed by 5 p.m. on Thursday, Feb. 11. Orders can be picked up at Capra’s Kitchen, located at 1834 Lakeshore Road West, Mississauga, on Sunday, Feb. 14 between 4 p.m. and 7 p.m
