Grand White Dinner in St Georges Park

The Grand White Dinner has taken place in London, Paris, Berlin, Cape Town and now Port Elizabeth.  On Saturday afternoon I got to attend the first Grand White Dinner taking place in the Friendly City with compliments of the organisers of the event.  I wasn't sure what to expect but was blown away from the moment we walked through the gate.  Everything was laid out perfectly with somebody on hand right from the start to show guests where to go. Best of all, people went all out to keep to the white with a touch of green theme.  The only one that didn't play along was the weather with a coming cold front causing the notorious PE wind to come to the party as well.  And thanks to that, mixed in with the flu that kept me in bed the whole of Sunday, we unfortunately ducked out before it got dark.  From the photos on Facebook we missed out on some serious fun after dark. 

Guests didn't know where the event were going to take place and the fact that it was St Georges Park was only conveyed a couple of hours before it started.  The venue was great with more than enough space for the party and parking available.  I'm sure there are quite a few people who attended who is already looking to pencil in the date for next year's event into their diaries.
I also got to meet Christine Visser who won tickets to attend the Grand White right here on Port Elizabeth Daily Photo.  She's still going to send me a couple of photos that she took that I will post as soon as I get it from her.

  1. The Grand White Dinner certainly seems to be a Grand All White Dinner judging from the photos.
