Invitation to attend SCCC’s Annual Lucia Celebration, December 14, 2018

Dear colleagues, family and friends.

The Swedish-Canadian Chamber of Commerce cordially invites you to join us for our Annual Lucia Celebration!

“The air is getting colder, the holidays are near,
a time for celebration with those we hold so dear.
Let the warmth of the glögg take the chill from the air,
and the light from Lucia makes winter easier to bear.”

The past several years we have enjoyed your company at our Annual Lucia Celebration, hosted by the Fairmont Royal York Hotel. This year we will have a new and more modern overall Nordic experience by relocating our event to Hilton Toronto.

Invite your business acquaintances, friends, and family to get away from the daily routine and join us for an atmospheric afternoon as we celebrate the joy and wonder of the holidays and relationships beyond borders, all in the light of Lucia.

From your first sip at the glögg reception to the last bite of the Christmas ham, prepare yourself for a culinary journey through Swedish specialties featuring well-known Swedish recipes with some new adaptations from Chef Kevin and his team at the Hilton. Enjoy a unique taste of Sweden!

Brian G. Smith, an award-winning alumnus of The Second City, celebrated filmmaker and Swedish Salmon-Raffler, will MC the event.

We are delighted to once again have Toronto Children’s Lucia Choir perform, as well as dazzling raffle prizes to be won and as always, the traditional singing of Schnapps songs!
