We were very lucky to host our first annual arts gala and fundraiser at The Reach Gallery and Museum in Abbotsford.
This event featured musical performances from The Sylvia Platters, Western Jaguar, and Corey Primus, and literary readings from Alex Rake, Saint Soldier, Martin Castro, and RPS Executive Director and Raspberry editor-in-chief Katie Stobbart. Additionally, artist Shannon Thiessen did a live painting which was included in the silent auction.
Thank you to our silent auction donors: Backyard Vineyards, Best Western, Taneane Tweale, Boardwalk Cafe & Games, Harrison Festival Society, Sylvia Platters, Blessed and Cheap High, Small Inklings, Little and Lively, Carla Swope, Maan Farms, Clayburn Copperworks, Julie Anne’s Framing, Revival Arts, and Shannon Thiessen.
Thank you to Ravens Brewing for providing beer for this event, and Maan Farms for providing wine.
Special thanks to The Reach for sponsoring the venue for this event and to Aaron Levy for handling sound and media.
