SAVE-THE-DATE | AUGUST 20th 2020

The Social Concierge continues to design reimagined experiences for this unique time in history. Once again reviving a fan-favourite, we bring you a virtual summer soirée edition of Candlelight Club.

 

What is Candlelight Club, you ask? A “can’t miss experience” that is:

  • A COLLECTIVE EVENING: one massive, nationally-connected socially distant dinner party;
  • AN INTERACTIVE SHOW: a virtual broadcast in multiple time zones that celebrates music, cuisine and each other by way of candlelight;
  • A NEW SOCIAL EXPERIENCE: beyond Zoom video rooms, this event brings you new gathering technology that you do not want to miss;
  • A LIVE MEMORY: meant to be experienced in the moment, unable to view it later with both participatory, surprising and collective interactions;
  • AN EVENT FOR FOOD LOVERS: integrating top restaurants, introducing chef personalities and bringing together a cuisine-focused experience;
  • A CHANCE TO GIVE BACK: non-profit fundraiser for two local charities;

 

Read on for full details, with more details to come during on-sale during the week of August 4th.

 

A community effort presented by The Social Concierge, National Bank Private Banking 1859, Red Bull, Botanist Gin, Orbiiit, Carmen Wines, Cointreau, Remy Martin Cognac, Dona Paula Wines, and ZLC Financial.

As the Social Concierge prepares to host our upcoming special Social Distancing edition of Candlelight Club, we are committed to ensuring that the climate costs of bringing people together digitally for the 50th anniversary Earth Day celebration are not only fully offset, but negative.

By bridging the distances erected by critical social distancing with Zoom calls, Whatsapp threads, and Twitch streams we want to ensure that each person’s participation will be CARBON NEGATIVE. Therefore, all required electricity, connectivity, and meal costs incurred for this special evening will be offset by our purchasing of carbon credits at $11.00 per ton of CO2 via the Gold Standard.
