Faubourg 3rd Annual Macaroon Day

Faubourg, Vancouver’s trio of elegant boulangeries-pâtisseries, will proudly participate to Macaron Day on March 20th and offer its signature macarons for $1.50 and donate 100% of gross proceeds to BC Cancer Foundation, the largest funder of cancer research in this province.

In addition, Franck Point, owner of Faubourg Paris, will generously match the amount collected from macaron sales and thus double the donations in support of the BC Cancer Foundation. The objective this year is to sell 10,000 macarons, which would result in a $10,000 donation that Franck will match to raise in total $20,000 for the BC Cancer Foundation.

Launched by Parisian pastry chef Pierre Hermé in 1995, Macaron Day is not only an opportunity to celebrate spring with one of the prettiest French treat, but also to raise donations for good causes to help those in need.
