Exciting courses. Membership discounts. A chance to meet new friends. An invitation to expand personal and professional horizons. And loads of prizes!

These are just some of the attractions of WICE’s Open House, taking place Sept. 20.

Those who register to attend, and actually turn up on the day, stand a chance to win an exclusive cooking demonstration at the famous Cordon Bleu school, which has a gleaming new campus by the Seine.

This prize, valued at around 95 euros per person, is among several that will be on offer at Open House for which participants will be entered in the draw. Additionally, visitors will learn about WICE and its extensive range of programs.

"Attending WICE's fall Open House is a great way find out about WICE's many cultural and educational offerings and to get to know the people – WICE’s dedicated team of volunteers and instructors – who work tirelessly behind the scenes to make them happen,” says WICE President Mary Sipper. “I hope to see you there.”

Participants at the event can browse information about classes on cooking, wine tasting, creative writing, cultural studies, languages, and the visual arts. They will equally learn about guided walks and visits to France’s numerous cultural institutions.

And they will be entered in draws for these other impressive prizes:

- An opportunity to win a Paris Day Bike Tour for Two, courtesy of Fat Tire Tours,

- A Picnic to Go for two people plus a 30-minute Photo Session at either the Eiffel Tower, Tuileries Garden, or Notre Dame area, with Pictours Paris,

- A chance to own a hand-colored etching, numbered and signed by the artist Nancy Wilson, from Maison Conti,

- Vouchers for the My American Market store,

- Two complimentary tickets from the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées – a stunning art deco theater that puts on opera productions and concerts during the year.

- Two tickets for a theatre production with THEATRE IN PARIS , a company that presents French plays with English subtitling,

Those who sign up for a course during Open House will receive 50% off their WICE Membership fee (terms and conditions apply).

Open House takes place from 3 pm to 7 pm at Dorothy's Gallery, 27 rue Keller, 75011 Paris.

As one current WICE member emphasizes, it’s an event not to be missed.
