THANK YOU FRIENDS!
It is with great emotion and gratitude that we are writing to thank you for having joined us in celebrating the 30th edition of Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris.
Initially the idea of bringing together Parisians and foreigners for this anniversary was met with concern and enthusiasm on both the French side and the international community. Both organisations have their particularities so certain adaptations were necessary to carry out this ambitious project. The final result exceeded our expectations, not only in the number of participants from around the world, but also in the merger of the two groups.
It is said that white is not a colour but rather the result of the fusion of all colours. On June 3rd, 2018, all the colours of the world gathered on the Esplanade des Invalides united by the same desire for celebration, sharing and friendship. For the first time in its history, a bridge was built between the Parisian tradition and the international modernity of the event forging the way for a forth decade of Le Dîner en Blanc focused on the rest of the world.
If the magic of Le Dîner en Blanc worked so well, it is also thanks to the many foreign Volunteer Leaders who spent a lot of time preparing for this unique friendly gathering. We would like to pay tribute to them and thank them for the many hours, days and weeks of preparation!
Le Dîner en Blanc is a participatory event and collective success. It is characteristic to the adage that happiness is deserved and built in the path that leads to the goal. At that point, the goal can be grand…
Thank you again for coming from afar to celebrate with us. Thank you for the energy, time, effort and your ‘joie de vivre’ that helped create this moment of grace.
A la prochaine, les amis ! Long live Le Dîner en Blanc de Paris !
Aymeric & François Pasquier
& the 30th Anniversary Team: Josée, Sandy, Sarah, Belquis, Roger and the Volunteer Leaders
