Imagine this scene.
You’re in a high-end restaurant, maybe in Toronto, New York or L.A. There’s a fabulous meal sitting in front of you, but it’s still untouched.
Because you’re having a one-on-one conversation with your favourite star, who’s actually sitting at the table across from you!
And then imagine knowing you’re also making a meaningful difference in someone’s life.
Dine with a Star makes it all possible.
Or to be more precise, we help YOU make it possible!
