The Chamber of Commerce Lac-Brome puts $ 10 000 Festival Bel Canto

Brome Lake July 24, 2008 - The Bel Canto benefit-gala of July 11th was a great success! Ten thousand dollars were raised at the event organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Brome Lake. Nearly a hundred people attended the event to show their support to this first Bel Canto "Knowlton-Rome" Festival to be presented by the MSO, from August 15 to 24, in Knowlton.

The event was organized by the Chamber of Commerce of Brome Lake so that the local business community would have the opportunity to demonstrate its support to the Bel Canto Festival and to thank the OSM for choosing Knowlton as the destination for this major event. It is a beautiful gift that we have been offered, a unique opportunity to have Knowlton and Brome Lake known, internationally, as a destination of choice.

It is therefore with great enthusiasm that the community has united to demonstrate its support. The result was a dynamic evening, presented at the Auberge Quilliams, started by the service of a delicious wine, courtesy of Domaine les Brome, accompanied by classical violin and guitar music. It is to the sweet sound of the harp that diners enjoyed their meal, crab, salmon, duck and fruity dessert, sponsored by various suppliers, thanks to the owner of the Auberge Quilliams, Mr. Gilbert Delvaux.

In a short speech, Mr. Cameron Brown, president of the Chamber of Commerce of Brome Lake, thanked the participants for their presence that demonstrates the importance of this event for our community. Mr. Marco Genoni, honorary president of the Bel Canto Festival also said a few words to give a foretaste of the festival.

The meal… succulent, the cause… unique, the ambience… pleasant and light, all were very satisfied! A silent auction (painting, gourmet products, spa treatment and concert tickets) completed the evening. Some very generous donations have been received and we are very grateful to all as we have raised $ 10 000, which will be donated to the MSO for the Bel Canto festival in Knowlton.
