An Affair to Remember Gala, Mar. 6, 2015 @ Carlu, 444 Yonge Street, Toronto

On the evening of March 6, 2015, Canada’s National Ballet School (NBS) hosted its annual fundraiser, An Affair To Remember Gala at the infamous The Carlu in the heart of Toronto.  Each Year the NBS, host these gala and each year, its just get better and better.  This year’s theme, An Affair to Remember was a 1950’s glam theme with decor and guest dressed in the era.  As Guests made their way to the Carlu for a cocktail reception, mingling and wetting their palettes with hor d’oeuvres and cocktails.

It was a night of a themed New York City (ice sculpture and mini Empire State buildings) and Paris, just like the famous movie that starred Cary Grant, Deborah Kerr and Richard Denning.  Guests got their photos (photo booth and group shots) taken throughout the night, donated funds to NBS by purchasing tickets for the raffle (prizes: trip to Paris/French Rivera, Turks & Caicos, diamond necklace and weekend in NYC) and a shot with lady luck at the casino tables.  A formal dinner was served to seated guests as well an after dinner performance.

After dinner, guests moved upstairs for sererval performances from students in the School’s Professional Ballet Program
