Gala Dinner

The Gala dinner on December 4th brings together friends, family, former colleagues and trainees of Fred Andermann. An evening filled with fine wine, sumptuous food and an opportunity to remember Fred. The dinner will take place at Le Loft Hotel situated at the intersection of the well-known Latin Quarters and the stylish Plateau Mount Royal. Completed in 1920 by Montreal’s preeminent architect, Ernest Cormier, the building is one of the city’s enduring Art Deco landmarks. This location radiates rich local culture and the true essence of an amazing city. It importantly combines contemporary design by Jaime Bouzaglo (Alcazar, Spanish Morrocco) with intriguing architectural history.
