Join Academie Duello and Mission-Possible for one of this year’s most unique and exciting charitable evenings featuring dancing, games, canapés, and swordplay!
Event proceeds will support two great causes: Mission Possible’s employment readiness program, helping individuals battling poverty to attain work-ready skills, confidence, and a renewed sense of purpose; and Academie Duello’s Knight Camp scholarship program that helps disadvantaged kids learn self-empowerment, leadership, and martial arts through knightly training.
You’ll step through our doors into our beautiful candlelit hall. An attendant will welcome you and give you the badge of one of our noble houses. You’ll then receive a purse of coins… That’s when the fun begins.
From 8:30 to 10:30 the champion of your noble house will meet a challenge from each of the others. Spend your coins to help equip your champion with advantages or sabotage your opponents with disadvantages.
Cheer on your champions, watch amazing sword fights, and toast the victors!
Perhaps make a wager to earn some more coins, or give a donation to Mission-Possible and reap the reward of more riches to skew the odds in your favour.
At 10:45 the two most valiant champions will face one another in the finals of our tournament and the house that wins will hold their glory over all the others! But we’ll all celebrate because the winnings go to charity!
If watching isn’t enough for you try your hand with a blade by sabreing a bottle of champagne with a two handed sword or snuffing candles with a rapier.
Our experts are on hand to teach you the finer points of cut and thrust.
Through the evening, enjoy the tasty canape creations of Chef Kari Chellouf. Vegetarian and gluten free options will be available.
Enjoy swordplay themed cocktails from our excellent bar staff. Socialize with an amazing crowd and enjoy great music from our house DJs. There’s even room to kick off your shoes and dance or dance with a blade at one of our sword experience stations.
Don’t miss the most fun, unique, and exciting event of the year! Tickets get you all this fun, plus a free drink, and it’s all for two great causes: Academie Duello’s Knight Camp scholarships and Mission Possible’s employment programs in the Downtown East Side.
Tickets are $80 until May 31st, $95 from June 1st - June 8th. There will be no tickets available at the door.
