Luso Canadian Charitable Society thanks our many generous sponsors, volunteers and guests for contributing to the success of our 2021 Taste of Portugal, presented by the Ministério dos Negócios Estrangeiros (Portuguese Ministry of Foreign Affairs).

Guests enjoyed wines from various regions of Portugal, provided by DOC Wine Imports, Madhu Wines, and Quinta Cellars Imports, while listening to our amazing Portuguese guitarist Reno Silva. A delicious food selection was generously provided by Golden Grains Bakery Cafe & Deli Ltd, Le Treport Wedding & Convention Centre and Pavao Meats-Salsicharia Pavao.

While the inclement weather required a quick move from our Rooftop Terrace to the Portuguese Cultural Centre of Mississauga, the evening was enjoyed by all and further raised awareness of the needs of those living with disabilities.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the success of this event where we celebrated Portuguese culture and brought a Taste of Portugal home to all of us!

On August 21, the parking lot at the Shoppes on Rogers Road in Toronto roared with the sound of more than 50 motorcycles who raised funds for Luso Canadian Charitable Society, as part of our 2021 Virtual Volta event.

Our Volta Motorcyclists rode 200 KM from Churrasqueira Martins & Grill House along the scenic countryside to Madeira Park in Georgina where live entertainment and a delicious Portuguese barbecue lunch was enjoyed. Participating riding clubs included the Bravos Açores, Luso MR, Quinas, and Highwaymen Riding Clubs. The array of beautiful bikes and rider apparel delighted many bystanders who happened to pass by.

Luso thanks the organizers and participants of this event who raised money in support of individuals living with disabilities!
