A Night of Wine and Cheese ... and all that jazz!
A Night of Wine & Cheese...and all that jazz! is an event to honour the memory of Amy Gilbert, an alumna and strong advocate for IISD Experimental Lakes Area (IISD-ELA), and to fundraise for IISD-ELA—the world's freshwater laboratory.
Spend an evening in the splendour of the Millennium Centre—famed for being one of Winnipeg's most historic and beautiful event venues—while savouring fine cheeses, paired wines and sumptuous hors d’oeuvres prepared by WOW Hospitality.
You'll also enjoy live jazz music, performed by the exceptional Ron Paley Trio, as well as a silent auction and raffle.
Every cent raised by this soirée will go directly to IISD Experimental Lakes Area whose ground-breaking research aims to keep our most valuable resource—fresh water—clean around the world for generations to come.
The VIP reception starts at 5:30 p.m., while the full event starts at 6:00 p.m. and will wrap up at 11:00 p.m.
The dress code for the event is cocktail attire.
