During the event, guests will get to sample food and beverages from 14 different restaurants like The Keg Steakhouse Bar & Grill and Marek Hospitality all while experiencing the sights and sounds of a historic street atmosphere.
Mary Lou Hussak, executive director of the Health Sciences North Foundation, said the idea is to bring back the excitement of Sudbury's old Borgia Street, which was demolished in the 1960s to make way for a large shopping mall now known as the Rainbow Centre.
"Borgia is a historic area of downtown Sudbury that a lot of people don't know about." Hussak said. "It was really a vital and lively type of area with the hotels and markets."
All the proceeds from the event will go to the simulation laboratory at the Health Sciences North Learners Centre, which allows staff to practise procedures on mannequins with no risk to patients.
Apart from enjoying delicious food and drinks at the Rue Taste Street event, guests will also get a chance to work on the mannequins from the hospital's simulation lab.
Rue Taste Street takes place March 21 at the Caruso Club at 6:30 p.m. Tickets range from $100 to $200. For tickets, phone 705-523-7135 or visit hsnfTaste.ca
