Algarve Gala Dinner – 10th December 2021, Hilton Hotel Vilamoura

As the year drew to a close, we managed to throw one last hurrah, our annual Algarve Gala Dinner. The Hilton Hotel Vilamoura was the perfect setting for the event, with Cool Manouche & Betty providing an impressive theme tune for the evening.

With tests done and masks on, our members began to filter into the dining area, with the names of our kind sponsors, Share Algarve, Fine & Country Algarve & Sovereign displayed above them. After an initial welcome drink that gave everyone the chance to reacquaint themselves after the last few years of uncertainty, our members began to take a seat and enjoy the fabulous food provided by the Hotel.

The highlight of the evening was the post-dinner entertainment. Our President, Rui Almeida, introduced our prestigious tombola, which several of our members had kindly contributed too. It was a huge success, painting beaming smiles onto the attendees, and even larger ones onto those who won. The vouchers included:

Quinta do Barranco Longo offer of a Bottle of Barranco Longo Branco Encruzado – Inês Janz, Available Connection
