Your Hummingbird sponsorship will help ensure the financial success of the event and all Hummingbirds will be acknowledged during the event. Not quite like being there but a great way to show your support if you can’t make it.

Start the evening with hors d’oeuvres by Claudia Portaro from Claudia’s Catering followed by signature creations from Rob Barlow at the Auberge Willow, Stuart LeBaron of LeBaron Bites and Scott Geiring of Carambola Bistro, roast beef, Yorkshire puddings and all the go withs from Keith Wells of Mackoli, salmon lasagna from Thomas Spriet of L’artisan de la mer, mac and cheese from Patricia Hovington at Minus 40 Foods, and smoked ribs from Lee Michaelson of Restaurant Rube.  Dawn Hodes at Daboom! Desserts and Jean-Pierre Martel of Terroir Hudson Ice Cream are teaming up to create a memorable dessert finale.

Because of the generosity of the chefs, sponsors, Le Castor Brewing Company and C&C Packing the entire event ticket price will benefit Le Nichoir.

And what would an event for Le Nichoir be without a great auction? Le Nichoir is known far and wide for its auction tables!  Businesses and individuals have come together once again to make sure A Taste of Hudson guests have an eclectic mix of great items to bid on throughout the evening.   Michael Lawrence and Tania Ellerbeck are teaming up to ensure the success of the live auction and Breakfast Television’s Elias Makos will pull it all together as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies.

A Taste of Hudson will raise much needed funds to support bird care this year. The Centre receives approximately 1500 injured and orphaned wild songbirds and aquatic birds annually needing individual attention and professional treatment. All these birds, such as the orphaned Merganser duckling or the Hairy woodpecker that flew into a window, are brought in by individuals like yourself and require five to six weeks of care given by Le Nichoir’s four summer students, wildlife biologist and many bird care volunteers.

Looking to promote your company or organization in hopes of increasing its visibility? Please consider advertising or sponsoring the event. For more information call Susan at 450 458 2809 or info@lenichoir.org
