La Nuit en Rose

CF Canada 19th Annual 65 Roses Gala took place Saturday night at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel.

My sister and I were guests at the Kohse family table.  After a champagne cocktail on arrival we then enjoyed a delicious dinner and overflowing wine amongst friends. The overall theme was Parisian, so hence the take on Coco Chanel.  When I think of Paris, I think of her.  How much layering is over the top?   Nothing is too much if done in style.

We had a fun evening where over $250,000 was raised for cystic fibrosis research, advocacy and care.  We all hope that one day CF will stand for Cure Found.

Our tables were decked out with eiffel towers, crystal candle holders and of course, roses.
Macarons for tout la monde

 

 

 

Some of the silent auction goodies. I came away with two gift baskets. Yay! All monies donated to CF.
