Merci Whistler

The snow falling outside the Whistler Conference Centre on Wednesday, Nov. 15 added to the warm and festive atmosphere inside the 3rd successful French Rendezvous fundraiser in support of Ecole La Passerelle.

The delicious food, joyous French music and amazing silent auction made for a great event for friends and strangers alike to come together in celebration of French culture. The event successfully raised more than $10,000 in support of the education of the 60 students at Whistler’s francophone school.

A very heartfelt thanks to D’arcy Demoe of Harvest Catering, Tightrope Winery, Whistler Brewing Co., Watermark, Sea to Sky Celebrations and the staff at the Whistler Conference Centre for their significant support of this event. We would not have been able to do it without you.

To the 37 generous businesses and individuals who donated amazing works of art, gift certificates and unique experiences to the silent auction, thank you, you are incredible. And to each of you who helped in ways that to us were both enormous and unexpected, merci beaucoup. On behalf of the eager students who will benefit from the evening, thank you and merci for being a supportive, thoughtful and generous community.

Ecole La Passerelle Parent Advisory Committee,
