FRENCH DINNER CELEBRATING THE 75th D-DAY ANNIVERSARY and HONORING THE WWII VETERANS

THURDAY JUIN 6 2019 at 6pm at 

BONTERRA DINING & WINE ROOM 

Address: 1829 Cleveland Ave, Charlotte, NC 28203

The 70th anniversary of D-day was commemorated on June 6, the day that Western Allied forces landed in Normandy thereby paving way for the liberation of France. Annual celebrations have taken place since June 6, 1945, date of the 1st celebration. From very early on, the D-day anniversary became a major event that benefited from significant communication campaigns. The war caused countless casualties and considerably impoverished the country. Commemorating the Allied forces and their sacrifices allows for a collective memory to stay fresh so that past errors will never be repeated.

Please join us for a delicious dinner celebrating the 75th D-Day anniversary, and honoring WWII veterans.

7-course dinner, with wine pairing - $150 per person, includes tax and gratuity.
