Throwback to the 2022 Edition
Close to $340,000 raised at the annual gala, for the first time at Les Grands Ballets’ home, to the benefit of the creation fund!
After two disrupted years, the annual benefit gala of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens finally took place last Saturday at Édifice Wilder. The intimate and exclusive evening brought together over 200 guests in the Atrium of Les Grands Ballets for a champagne reception, and then in the Studio-Théâtre, the company’s private theater, for a sit-down supper on stage.
In addition to getting the chance to see our dancers perform just a few meters away, guests received a number of surprises: Clarins products were offered to each of them, Roche Bobois offered a gift bag at every table, and Edika offered Touché/GB coffees for every guests. And, last but not least, a lucky guest in the room received a diamond worth nearly $15,000 offered by Édéenne!
At the silent auction, bids were taken for about 30 lots, including Air Canada Business class tickets. The dancers then invited the guests to join them on the dancefloor in celebration of this eagerly anticipated reunion!
The funds raised during the evening, with the help of co-presidents Nadine Renaud-Tinker, Regional President, RBC Royal Bank – Quebec, and Maurice Côté, Regional Vice President, Investment and Retirement Planning – Québec, RBC Royal Bank, and Chairman of the Board of Les Grands Ballets Canadiens, are turned over entirely to the company’s creation fund so that it can pursue its primary mission: renewing and enriching its repertoire.
