Event description

Description

In 2014, Linda Tzang, then curator of cultural communities at RAM, came up with the idea of Dining with Friends to complement RAM’s feature exhibition of the moment – Chop Suey on the Prairies – by exploring regional Chinese cuisines. The program was such a success that it continues to this day – now exploring a wide variety of cuisines.

Five years later, we must sadly bid Linda farewell as she moves on to new professional initiatives. But before she goes, we would like to hold a celebratory dinner to honour Linda and thank her for her years of leadership with Dining with Friends. Linda has agreed to this dinner – provided it is also a fundraiser for FRAMS’ Go! Program, which provides free day passes to individuals and groups that might not normally be able to visit RAM.

In honour of Linda’s request and our wish to celebrate Linda’s achievements, Stan Mah of the Blue Willow has put together a special celebration dinner menu, showcasing his restaurant’s three different types of Chinese cuisine: Cantonese, Szechuan/Mandarin, and Shandong. He is also offering diners a complimentary drink and a number of door prizes!

We hope you will be able to join us for this very special Dining with Friends fundraising event as we say thank you and farewell to Linda.
