Alliance Francaise

Betsey Pinkert
On behalf of the Woman's Board of the Alliance Francaise de Chicago, I want to thank you so much for your part in helping to make "Le Cirque en Fete" such an unprecedented success. The performance by iL CiRCo was the high point of the evening and received rave reviews from all of our guests. The acrobatic expertise of your artists, the drama, the colorful costumes, and the avant-garde music all contributed to the success of the show. As you are aware, our Gala was extremely complex and challenging to produce. We could not have succeeded without your thoughtful advice and professional support. It was an added bonus to us that you recommended Janet Taylor to serve as our technical supervisor. We were also very grateful to you for understanding the restrictions of our Gala budget and for persevering with us to help us choose the entertainment that we could afford. The Gala exceeded our goals, attracting 430 guests and was one of the most successful fund raising parties in the history of our institution. Hopefully, the results of the event will benefit the Alliance Fran~aise in a great variety of ways in the years to come. We are enclosing a Gala program which recognizes your participation and contribution. Once again, our thanks to you and to all of your talented performers!
