Celebrate with a Picnic for the Alliance's Bastille Day Fundraiser

af bd header picnicbasket

What better way to celebrate the French National Holiday than with a picnic basket! The Alliance is offering three unique and delicious baskets filled with French favorites. Chose from a basket filled with a selection of 
cheese, paté, sausage and, of course, some fabulous French wine selected by chef and sommelier Maxine Borcherding! Or for those with a sweet tooth, there is a basket of cookies and chocolates, cheese, jam, and sparkling wine. If you are a cook or a baker, you will revel in our basket of books on classic and modern French cuisine from some of the best names in French cooking plus a silicon mat and organic French flour.

What's in the baskets?

Just place your order by midnight June 28, then stop by the Alliance on July 11th or 12th between 1 and 4 pm, and one of our volunteers will bring your picnic basket to your car, or vélo, 
et voilà, you and your family will be ready to celebrate Bastille Day in style!
