RDÉE PEI – still the biggest sponsor of the Acadian Entrepreneurs’ Gala

WELLINGTON – March 23, 2022 – RDÉE Prince Edward Island remains the biggest sponsor of the Acadian Entrepreneurs’ Gala, organized by the Acadian and Francophone Chamber of Commerce of PEI, since the very first edition of this evening of entrepreneurial recognition back in 2001 (when it was called the Entrepreneurs’ Banquet). This is still the case this year for the 20th edition of the Gala, which is taking place Saturday, April 9, at 5:30 p.m. at the Acadian Musical Village in Abram-Village. The RDÉE pays the salaries of the employees who organize the entrepreneurial awards competition and who coordinate the organization of the Gala. This represents several weeks’ worth of salaries. It also pays some of the administrative costs, including the printing of the Gala souvenir booklet, accounting costs and more.
