Film and Dinner at the Hard Rock Café

Please join us as the American Club of Brussels welcomes producer Martin King for an exclusive viewing of his film Searching for Augusta, the Forgotten Angel of Bastogne.

The documentary, winner of a historical Emmy Award, features the story of Renée Lemaire, known as Anna. Anna, 'the Forgotten Angel of Bastogne' was born in the Belgian Congo and trained as a nurse in Leuven. The film honors her heroism for risking her life to treat injured soldiers during the Battle of the Bulge.

There will be two showings of the film at the Huis van het Nederlands with brief introductions from producer Martin King, who will bring the Emmy Award to the event for photo ops.

Dinner at the Hard Rock Café will follow each of the showings. The menu is as follows:

Jumbo Combo
A delectable array of their most popular starters
that is big enough to share:
spinach artichoke dip, hickory-smoked chicken wings,
onion rings, potato skins and Tupelo chicken tenders,
all served with three different sauces
for mixing and matching

Choice of Main Courses
Grilled salmon topped with Maitre d’Hôtel butter and served with mashed potatoes and fresh vegetables
Hard Rock’s legendary burger topped with
seasoned bacon, two slices of Cheddar cheese,
a crisp fried onion ring, lettuce, tomato, and pickles

Hard Rock Café Brownie
The viewing of the film is €10 for ACB, AWCB and CCB members and €20 for non-members. All proceeds from the documentary viewing will go to the Augusta Chiwy Foundation or the Community Help Service (CHS). Guests will be able to choose which charity they would like their proceeds to go to upon registration.
