Women in Food Industry Management (WFIM) held its annual holiday gala on November 23 at Millennium Gardens in Brampton, Ont.

Close to 300 people attended the event. Margaret Hudson, president and CEO of Burnbrae Farms, was the keynote speaker. Each year, WFIM holds a raffle to raise money for charity. This year, more than $5,000 was raised for Swim Drink Fish, a charity that Hudson supports. The charity focuses on supporting initiatives that make water swimmable, drinkable and fishable for everyone.
