ust over a year ago, a lovely French café and bistro
graced the downtown WG scene to the delight of locals
and visitors alike. With sumptuous bakeries, amazing
quiche and sandwiches, and some of the best coffee in town,
Rosallie Le French Café tantalizes their guests’ tastebuds.
Owner Jonathan Pluvinet, who moved to the area in early

Jonathan has survived cancer twice – once at the age of 23
and again at 27. He now has two children, and as a father
reminiscing on his own experiences, he holds this cause
very close to heart.
And then was born a ideal: host an event sharing the
wonders of French wine, coupling them with amazing
cheese and other hors d’oeuvres, and do it all in the name
of raising funds for an amazingly good cause. And thus,
Rosallie at Night was born.
Well, re-born...in a sense. Jonathan has previously successfully
hosted Rosallie at Night events at his Las Vegas location,
through both fund raising events and private parties. And
if the turn out and reception of the Winter Garden event
is a good one, it’s possible this might become a monthly
staple on the events calendar – and one that makes for a
great date night!
100% of the net profit from the October 5th event will be
donated to Childhood Cancer Awareness & Research.
Secure your participation for the event today by purchasing
a commemorative glass & ticket via the Rosallie website at

hosting you while sharing a toast and raising awareness
for a great cause!
