Hops and Vines Gala a suc­cess

North Bay Nugget - - NEWS - Katina Con­nolly

Our 22nd annual Hops and Vines gala fundraiser was a great event. We had an ex­cel­lent turnout, the en­ter­tain­ment was top notch, food and drink seemed to be en­joyed by all, and all signs are point­ing to­wards a smash­ing suc­cess in sup­port of lo­cal arts and en­ter­tain­ment – the rea­son we were all out in the first place.

This event would not be pos­si­ble with­out a strong team at the helm. Huge shout out to Cindy Forth who takes the lead on this event ev­ery year and ku­dos to our in­cred­i­ble staff who tend to drop ev­ery­thing on ‘gala week’ and pitch in.

We also had an out­stand­ing com­mit­tee this year who did an in­cred­i­ble amount of work be­hind the scenes to make this an un­for­get­table evening.

Our hats go off to Rick and Lyn Cur­rie, Stephanie gagnon, Carolyn guy, Lau­rie Moore and gina and Mark Sherry. We sin­cerely ap­pre­ci­ate you step­ping up to the plate and adding the WOW el­e­ment to this year’s event.

gala is al­ways an ex­cit­ing time of year but thank­fully we still have lots to look for­ward to even with the big event be­hind us. On Fri­day, the WKP Kennedy gallery will be open for the Down­town gallery Hop and will be host­ing the open­ing re­cep­tion for Bert Weir’s Legacy ex­hi­bi­tion.
