Events and fundraising

Periodic or one-off events enable the Dispensaire Français-Société Française de Bienfaisance to raise funds which are essential for its operations. These events are organised by the Dispensaire, our partners or through individual initiatives.

Gala dinner at the Résidence de France

Every other year, the Dispensaire has organised a Gala where our corporate and main private donors are invited to book a table. During the evening an auction takes place thanks to the generous partners who gift prestigious lots.  The proceeds of the auction go to the Dispensaire Français-Société Française de Bienfaisance.

In December 2017, in the splendour of the French Residence, Mr. Jean-Pierre Jouyet, the then French Ambassador and his wife Mrs Brigitte Taittinger Jouyet, together with Mrs Sylvaine Carta-Le Vert, French Consul General hosted a hundred of supporters of the Dispensaire actions.

After the cocktail, guests listened to opera aria sung by Bryan Hymel, tenor and Irini Kyriakidou,  soprano, Olga Jegunova accompanying them on piano, before savoring a dinner prepared by Gilles Quillot, the chef of the Residence.

Cinema evening

The Dispensaire organises a yearly evening at the cinema to raise funds with the partnership of the Institut Français in London  and our sponsor H2O.

In 2019, Mr. Guillaume Bazard, French Consul General, Mrs Sandra Kelleners, Belgian Consul General and Mrs. Claudine Ripert-Landler, Cultural Counsellor and Head of the Institut Français, honored our evening by their presence and their support around a cocktail followed by the screening of the film « Pupille » by Jeanne Henry (« In Safe Hands »).

A huge thank you to all for your support. Thanks to the generous welcome of the Institut, our sponsor H2O and your participation, we have been able to raise funds to help us pursuing our  mission of medical and social help.
