The purpose of the canal du Midi Patrons Business Club is to bring together regional economic players around the same cause, namely the canal du Midi, and above all the same project, that of restoring the green canopy threatened by the disappearance of plane trees attacked by canker stain.
This year, the club’s 60 business patrons raised more than €300,000 through donations, sufficient to purchase over 2,000 new trees to be replanted beside the canal.
The evening was an opportunity to review the replanting project, and in particular to thank the business patrons for their commitment to the canal du Midi restoration project. This year, some thirty patrons rose to the challenge. After a cocktail event held in an ancient barn at Mas Tolosa, the trophies were awarded by category (friends, bronze, silver, gold and platinum). Each year, this trophy evening is a great opportunity for the business patrons of the canal du Midi to meet and chat.
A big thank you to all our patrons, who together are contributing to the preservation of a historic, economic and environmental symbol: the canal du Midi.
