Thank you Atlanta!!!
On Sunday, September 19, 2021, the iconic hubs surrounding our historic site were buzzing with anticipation! Family, friends, colleagues, and neighbors gathered safely with smiling faces and picnic gear in tow; as they awaited details of their final destination for the 7th Edition of Le Dîner en Blanc - Atlanta.
As the grey rain clouds receded behind the Atlanta skyline, music and joy filled the air! 2,100 guests, elegantly dressed in white, were welcomed into Morris Brown College's Greek Plaza by the uplifting percussive sounds of The Atlanta Ol Skool Drummers. The stage was set for what was to be an unforgettable and mesmerizing evening!
You came. You sparkled. You danced. You toasted friends and family all in the unifying spirit of Le Dîner en Blanc! N-Da Groove Band and jazz saxophonist Mike Phillips provided the perfect ambiance for an incredible evening. Le Dîner en Blanc - Atlanta Host Team is humbled and thankful for your tremendous efforts and all that you did to make our city’s 7th edition possible; in spite of COVID-19 restrictions and other factors.
We’ve heard through email, social media, and the Members’ Wall that many new friendships were formed and previous bonds were strengthened. For some, it was their first time reuniting in person with loved ones. Seeing the joy and celebration of so many people committed to sharing such a unique experience together, makes the hard work truly worth it! Thank you for your continued support and enthusiasm for Le Dîner en Blanc!
A very special Thank You goes out to our incredible team of volunteer leaders! The 71+ Head, Group, and Table Leaders and onsite volunteers who helped you prepare for Le Dîner en Blanc - Atlanta and led you to the secret site are truly invaluable. Without them, this event would not be possible. Also, we would like to thank our very special PR Liaison, Samantha McCord for providing you with awesome details and always keeping you well informed on this year’s event.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the local partners and collaborators: Bacardi - Martini Rossi, BMW of South Atlanta, Copper Cane Wines, Natalie Reid State Farm, WJZA Smooth Jazz 101.1/100.1, Fellaship, and Wonder Kid.
The official video and photos will be posted soon at Dîner en Blanc - Atlanta - Galleries so that you will have the opportunity to relive the magic of Le Dîner en Blanc – Atlanta.
À la prochaine, Atlanta!
