Caterer Laura Archangeli gave the Unite With Art gala a prophetic start Thursday by serving chocolate-covered grapes sprinkled with gold dust. Alison Lawton, who chairs the beneficiary, UNICEF Canada’s Unite for Children, Unite against AIDS division, then donated $100,000 and challenged art- auction attendees to match it. Four promptly put up $25,000 each. Unite With Art executive director Julie Lee said the function, which was hosted free of charge at Maynards Auctioneers’ Main-off-Second facility, eventually grossed $427,000. Previous galas reportedly took in $190,000 and $276,000. Now-Toronto-based actress Tara Spencer-Nairn MCed with the verve she always showed here.
