Dining with the Ambassadors
Every second year, ambassadors and high commissioners generously open their homes for Dining with the Ambassadors, a community fundraising event for the Rockcliffe Park Village Foundation. Dining with the Ambassadors has been taking place for decades. The evening begins with cocktails at the Community Hall and a chance to mingle with new and old friends. Then, host ambassadors and high commissioners and their spouses are introduced and guests then learn the residence where they will be spending the evening.
