Concordia World Gala – Nov 8

Posted on: Oct 22, 2019

Back in July, we announced Concordia’s new signature event, the Concordia World Gala.  Our first Concordia World Gala will take place on November 8, 2019, and 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!

As you’ve no doubt guessed, Portugal is this year’s theme.  CUE has had a strong partnership with UPorto since 2012, and we’re thrilled that we’ll have special guests from the university join us for the Gala.  

We’re also excited to have Global Edmonton on as our media sponsor, with Jennifer Crosby, Global News at Noon Anchor, as our emcee for the evening.  

It will be a black tie event, featuring a live band, Portuguese dancers, dancing and more!

So, faculty and staff, if you have haven’t bought your ticket yet, please do soon, as they’re starting to sell out and the Gala is just around the corner!

You’ll also be entered for the chance to win 2 business class flights to Amsterdam, with travel perks, courtesy of Edmonton International Airport, as well as have the opportunity to receive other great prizes throughout the evening.

World Gala information and tickets

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

We’d also like to acknowledge our sponsors: 

See you there!
