The Biggest Oscar After Party is at the Cornwall Civic Complex!
Children’s mental health programs to benefit from glamourous fundraiser at the Cornwall Civic Complex
La Cuisine Volante, the exclusive caterer to the Cornwall Civic Complex is planning an exciting fundraising event on March 5th 2016. “A Night in Hollywood – The Oscars After Party Gala” will be an event to remember, held the weekend after the Academy Awards ceremony in Los Angeles, CA.
The formal gala evening will start with a red carpet entrance to the cocktail hour with a selection of delicious appetizers and drinks, followed by a four course gourmet meal, and a late lunch. Guests will be entertained throughout the evening by Robert Cote from Quiet Moments, the National award winning, variety party band, The Alison Wonderland Band, and also with the incomparable DJ Sound, Stacy McPhail. (Please note: all allergy and dietary requirements can be accommodated, please let us know!)
In this inaugural year, the selected beneficiary of the event is the Cornwall and District Service Council’s $250,000 pledge to the Cornwall Community Hospital Foundation toward children’s mental health programs in Cornwall. All the money donated will stay locally at our hospital to benefit the area’s children.
“We are pleased to be assisting the service clubs to achieve their fundraising goal for these very important programs. We believe that when children get the help they need at an early age, they grow up to be happy, healthy and contributing members of our community, positively affecting generations to come,” says Mr. James Morris, owner of La Cuisine Volante. “With the support of our community, we hope to have a sell-out event and are able to make a substantial donation at the end of the evening.”
The evening’s special guest speaker is Ann Douglas. Ann is a bestselling parenting book author and a passionate and inspiring speaker who sparks conversations that matter. She is the author of “Parenting Through the Storm” and numerous other books about parenting, including the bestselling The Mother of All Books series. Her presentation will be a mother's personal story of mental health challenge and resilience — and how we can make a difference for families in our community.
Scotiabank will be matching donations up to $5,000 and Andre Pommier from Pommier Jewellers, has generously donated a diamond to give away as a door prize to add an additional sparkle to the evening’s events. La Cuisine Volante will also be giving away a "Chef at Home Experience" for up to 6 people, valued at $1000.
"We are so pleased that Service Club Council of Cornwall and La Cuisine Volante have partnered to organize this fantastic event on behalf of CCH Foundation. It's going to be a great evening, and we are honoured to be the charity of choice for such a unique fundraiser," says Mr. Allan Wilson, CCH Foundation Board Chair.
