À propos de l'événement

For many years, the association has forged privileged links with Haiti through numerous joint and concrete projects in the cultural, environmental, heritage and memorial fields. Since 2015, the association has been working with the Haiti Tourist Association (ATH) and the Institute for the Protection of Haitian National Heritage (ISPAN) to develop an ambitious project to rehabilitate a former slave coffee plantation. The Dion habitation is an exceptional archaeological site of major interest. More than a heritage to be renovated, this site will become an open and dynamic space, a place of exchange and interpretation so that history continues to enlighten us about our contemporary world.

The objective of this project in Haiti is to promote a sustainable economy in this isolated territory by:

- the construction of an interpretation center on the history (and memory) of Haiti

- reforestation and coffee plantation for their cultivation in a sustainable and organic agriculture.

To ensure the success of this project, we are inviting the people of Nantes and their friends to a large, generous and gastronomic evening, since the great chefs of Nantes, Mr. Guého Jean-Yves, starred creator of the Atlantide restaurant, and the famous gourmet pastry chef Mr. Guerlais Vincent, take care of the menu and its preparation. They offer their know-how and their art combined with the excellence of the Hebel House: they are the first volunteers for this generous and convivial evening.

Schedule of the evening:

19: Home

7:30 p.m.: Aperitif cocktail

8 p.m. to 8:40 p.m.: Auction of works of art

9 p.m.: Dinner

The auction is accessible without reservation of the gourmet dinner.

Cost of the gastronomic evening: 170 €

Cost after tax deduction of 66% (Art. 200 CGI): €58

The law encourages this generosity, since the Anneaux de la Mémoire association has long been declared of general interest and donations allowing participation in this evening will be deductible up to two-thirds of income tax.

What will my donation be used for?

The sums collected will finance the preparatory and support work for the Rings of Memory - historical and documentary research - and will finance the purchase of seeds for the realization of this project.

Your donation is dedicated to 2 priority areas in 2019:

- Delivery of drinking water to the site. Reconstruction of water cisterns for the local populations and for the needs of the place.

- Support for reforestation and the reintroduction of coffee in the territory in order to introduce local, sustainable and fair agriculture. Development of an economic activity for the benefit of local populations.

Can I benefit from a counterpart?

Yes, this consideration is double. Your donation is tax-exempt up to 66% of income tax (tax credit valid for 5 years) and you enjoy a tasty dinner enjoyed during a convivial evening.
