Know someone who deserves a special night out? Nominate them to win!

Vince Spitale and family

The following message is from Vince Spitale of Eatdrinklaugh.

No matter how much hard work, dedication and kindness someone puts out into the world, we all have challenging times. These setbacks may be related to health, finance or countless other things, but the truth is that everyone has them. While I hope your life has more ups than downs, remember – the downs are always temporary!

At Eatdrinklaugh, I have the incredible good fortune of seeing people on some of the best days of their lives: holidays, birthday parties, wedding anniversaries and other special occasions. These are magical times with family and friends, and memories that last a lifetime. But who’s to say we can’t create a little magic, too?

That’s exactly what my family and I want to do – create a little magic for some deserving people in our community. We’re planning something special, but I need YOU to help us find the right people!

We’re hosting a very special dinner party

I’m looking for four incredible people to join us for a private dining event on June 8th. Each guest will be given four tickets to dinner (the winner plus three guests) where they will be joined by other winners and their guests. An incredible meal will be prepared and served in our beautiful venue. There will be food, drink and lots of laughs – a celebration of community and an opportunity to enjoy a stress-free, relaxing evening. It’ll be like going to a five star restaurant – just without the bill at the end of the night!

Tell us who you want to celebrate

If you know someone deserving, tell us about them! They might be a friend or family member, a neighbour, a co-worker, that amazing teacher at your kids’ school, or a selfless volunteer in your community. Perhaps they’re a hardworking person who has fallen on tough times, an individual dealing with illness or other hardship. There are no hard rules on what makes someone deserving – just tell us why they should get a special night out and they’ll be entered to win.

Nominations are open now!

To nominate an individual or family that deserves a special night out, please send us a direct message on Facebook or Instagram (please do not put your nomination in the comments). Let us know who you’re nominating and why they deserve it. Nominees must live within a reasonable distance of Toronto/Durham Region as our venue is located in Scarborough and transportation is not included. The dinner will take place on June 8, 2019 at 7pm. We ask that all nominations submitted to our Facebook page be under 150 words. Winners will be chosen at the discretion of myself (Vince Spitale) and the Eatdrinklaugh team.

I’d love to hear from you directly, if you want to tell us about your nomination in more detail than 150 words allows. Feel free to call or text me at 416 562 2387, or email

If you have any questions at all, please let us know. Thanks so much, and good luck!
