Annual Gala Dinner
On Thursday, April 27th,
l'Alliance Française is holding its Annual Fundraising Gala Dinner
at the Calgary Golf & Country Club.
Join us for a memorable evening as we mark the
70th anniversaryof our organisation.
At 6pm a cocktail will be served in a musical ambiance followed by
an exquisite four-course gourmet dinner prepared by chef Vincent Parkinson (manager of the Bocuse d'Or Canada). Celebrate the richness and elegance of French culture as we savour culinary delights and fine French wines in a convivial atmosphere.
During this evening you will be treated to several short presentations by guests including the Albertan Minister of Culture, the honorable Ricardo Miranda, the attaché culturel of the French embassy, M. Etienne Farreyre, and the generale delegate of the Alliances Françaises in Canada, M. Régis Camoin. During the evening, the great soprano Michele Cusson will sing a few French opera classics.
At the end of the night, you will have a chance to participate in our raffle which in previous years saw many of our esteemed guests leave the event with some spectacular prizes.
All profits will go towards funding the many upcoming projects of the Alliance Française of Calgary like the opening of our new location.
This event will be conducted mostly in English so do not be afraid if your French is work in progress! Moreover, we have several tables set up for our individual guests or associations. This is a great opportunity to meet other friends of the French language.
The sale for this event is now closed.
