Hart House Alumni Dinner Series with Guest, Bruce Kidd

Hart_House_Dinner_Series_2012The Hart House Alumni Committee invites you to join students and alumni for a convivial and stimulating evening in the company of our informative and entertaining guest speaker: our new Warden Bruce Kidd.



The evening will begin with a reception during which you will have an opportunity to chat with our guest while consuming hors d’oeuvres and drinks. An intimate 3-course dinner (sustainably catered by Hart House Chef Marco Tucci and his staff, and always seasonal, fresh, cosmopolitan and absolutely delicious) follows, accompanied with wines, after which Dr. Kidd will discuss “Hart House: Past, Present and Future”. The presentation is followed by a lively discussion with the audience.
