Please join us for our Second Annual Holiday Party with a Purpose. We hope you can share this special evening with us - where we will come together with friends and support a worthy cause - the important work of l'Ecole de Choix (the School of Choice). L'Ecole de Choix (Choix) is a trailblazing elementary school in Haiti that is educating children living in the depths of poverty with academic and leadership development skills.
What better way to kick off the holiday season then with friends, food, wine and music - the pure and simple things that make life in Provence so spectacular. This year we will gather in the beautiful country restaurant, Chez Thome in Le Tholonet very close to Aix-en-Provence. Upon arrival you'll be greeted with a sparkeling apero, the warm glow of the grand fireplace and familiar melodies of our live jazz duo. We will enjoy a seasonal three course meal prepared in the traditions of Provence and paired with local wine from Maison Saint Aix, Domaine De La Grande Séouve.
Over the course of the evening we will hold a silent auction with a variety of items and services that you can "win" but will also help us raise money for the school. It will be a night to dress up (a little or as much as you want), meet new people, and support a worthy, sustainable cause: L’Ecole de Choix.
Please feel free to invite your friends and family. If you are unable to attend, please consider making a contribution anyway. To do so, simply click the tickets button and an option will appear.
- Please bring cash, a check book or your credit card, your generosity and your curiosity! We will have some items to sell, as well as a "silent auction."
- For those unfamiliar with a silent auction, the idea behind it is the vendors contribute products or services to the event and then attendees are able to bid on them - competing against each other to "win" the items. In other words, instead of simply donating to l'Ecole de Choix, you will receive the item or service in exchange for your donation (and we all are grateful to the vendor for its contribution)! So, everyone wins! We will explain the process in more detail during the evening.
- The dress code is "party attire," but please make yourselves comfortable - you're among friends and it is wintertime.
- Parking is available behind the restaurant but it might be a good idea to come in groups as parking spaces may be somewhat limited.
We look forward to seeing you on December 3!
