Join us for a night of enchantment and elegance at the 4th Annual Heart of the Community Gala & Auction
The Rotary Club of Cranbrook’s 4th annual Heart of the Community Gala & Auction takes place on April 27, 2024, at the Colombo Lodge in Cranbrook. This year, we invite you to immerse yourself in the allure of the Moulin Rouge, an evening where glamour meets philanthropy.
Rotary President Heidi Romich shares her excitement, “This year’s Moulin Rouge theme promises to be a spectacular affair. It’s an opportunity for our community to come together in the spirit of giving, celebration, and a little bit of Parisian flair. Every moment of this evening will be dedicated to enhancing and supporting the vital initiatives that make Cranbrook a wonderful place to live.”
The evening kicks off with cocktails at 5 pm, followed by a sumptuous four-course dinner starting at 6 pm. Our culinary journey includes:
- L’appertif: Layered crab and avacado pate’, red cabbage rase’, crouton au poivre
- Le potage: Vichyssoise with green pea purée
- La viande: Chicken supreme farci with brandy sauce, potato purée, roasted asparagus
- Le dessert: Filo tarte with crème fraiche on raspberry coulis and garni of mixed berries
Complimentary champagne will accompany the meal, enhancing your dining experience.
Dress in your semi-formal best, and feel free to embrace the Moulin Rouge theme with your attire. Whether you opt for bold and beautiful or elegantly understated, your presence will contribute to the night’s magic.
The evening will not only tantalize your taste buds but also entertain you with a live and silent auction and live music by The Testers that promises to keep you dancing late into the night.
Your participation is not just important, it’s transformative. The funds raised will be pivotal in bolstering local initiatives and extending our impactful reach to disadvantaged children in Honduras who wouldn’t otherwise get an education. This commitment underscores the Rotary Club’s enduring legacy of service in Cranbrook, a tradition proudly upheld since 1922. Projects like Rotary Park, McKinnon Park, Idlewild Park, Rotary Scott Villa, and many more have flourished thanks to your support.
