Il Gelato di Carlotta was front and centre at an annual even called Pasión de Esperanza (Passion of Hope), … a celebration of Food, Wine and Music plus a Silent Auction & Raffle Prizes on Friday, July 26. PASSION was organized by the Wells of Hope charity in Niagara on the Lake, which raises funds to dig wells in Guatemala and also build schools. Passion is hosted in the large garden centre called Mori Gardens, which donates its space, resources and facilities.
