Our Art from the Heart Fundraiser was held this past weekend at Shining Waters Marine in Upper Tantallon. This fabulous event was a great success. It was our second sold out fundraiser and we managed to raise $18,395. Sixty tickets were sold and lucky ticket holders were treated to an afternoon of great music by Red Rubber Boots, delicious Middle Eastern food made by Fundraising Committee members and of course an opportunity to take home a beautiful piece of art.
Many talented artists generously donated their work and Scotiabank Tantallon sponsored the event.
At the event we kicked off our Donation Gift Card fundraiser. We have printed beautiful cards using art work donated by Doretta Groenendyk. Please visit our Donation page for more information on this fundraising drive. We also sold tickets on a chance to win three additional pieces of art. Emily McDonah donated a painting in the memory of her mother, painter Andrea Redmond. Margot Metcalfe donated a framed limited edition photograph and Jo Beale donated a print of one of her watercolours.
We are wrapping up ticket sales on our Stay and Dine Raffle. We are looking forward to the prize draw at The Hubbards Barn during the Christmas Market on December 12th. Join us at the Community Table at 11:00 am to see if you are a lucky winner. Donation Gift Cards will also be available at the Market.
