Appetite for Art Fundraiser
Saturday, May 11, 2019
For one night only – Appetite for Art takes over the entire Kelowna Art Gallery and invites guests to an extraordinary celebration of visual art and fresh local cuisine – and the proceeds all go towards supporting educational programs at the Gallery.
Featuring food & beverages by:
Waterfront Wines • Joy Road Catering • Mission Hill Family Estate • Sandrine French Pastry and Chocolate • Okanagan Spirits Craft Distillery • Blue Mountain Vineyard and Cellars • BNA Brewing Co.
THIS YEAR’S THEME
This year’s gala will immerse guests in an atmosphere inspired by the classic film “Casablanca.” Attendees can expect to experience the classic 1940s cool of the Café Americain nightclub contrasted against by other spaces that pay tribute to the colourful fabrics and unique textures of Morocco. Guests are encouraged to “dress to impress” for this classic evening.
Attendees will be welcomed with a glass of sparkling wine, before enjoying delicious food and drink pairings, and viewing the stunning works of art assembled solely for the evening.
WORKS OF ART FOR AUCTION
A preview and online auction will be launched in April 2019. Stay tuned for more information.
