Announcing a new CUE signature event!

Posted on: Jul 10, 2019

President Tim Loreman and Board of Governors invite you to attend our new signature event: our first World Gala! 

After taking a break for several years, we are thrilled to announce the new annual fundraising event that will feature a different theme every year. The theme will allow us to showcase over 80 partnerships with universities around the world, allowing our students to experience education, culture and life in many countries, on almost each continent! 

Proceeds raised at this event will be directed towards scholarships and bursaries, to ensure that all those who qualify can receive support and continue their post secondary education without financial barriers.

Our first Concordia World Gala, on November 8, 2019, will be held at the new and prestigious JW Marriott hotel in Edmonton’s Ice District,  and highlighted with a meal prepared by celebrity chef, Kiran Patnam!

It will be a black tie event, and with Portugal as our theme, the event will feature a live band, Portuguese dancers, dancing and more!

We hope to see you at this inaugural event. Further details can be found at the World Gala’s webpage.
