Hi Everyone

NOCLS’s 9th Annual Art and Wine Gala

On behalf of NOCLS we would like to thank everyone who attended our 9th Annual Gala on Saturday, February 25, 2017.  With everyone’s efforts we raised $73,735.00.

This is not possible without the hard work of our committee Pippa Forster (Shaw), Dawn and Andrew Fradley.  The artists generosity allows us the opportunity to experience their expressions and talents in the comfort of our homes.   Rick Bond’s Silver Star Mountain was the most sought after masterpiece for $2,250 while Heidi Thompson, Carmen Tome, Michille Loughery, Mike Jell and Barry Rafuse were in much demand.

Kathy Ridley (Vernon Liquor Store) and Tania Robinson (30th Street Liquor Store) were able to provide wine for the meal and product for the baskets which were made by Jeanne Molitwenik.  Bob Woodman, auctioneer got things rolling by receiving a bid for the Okanagan Spirits Laird $500.00, Christophe and Tatyana Penalva’s 1982 bottle of French wine for $525.00 and Riverstone Estate Winery 2-night stay for $460.00.
Pippa Forster(owner of Designer’s Gallery) lead the fundraising group raising $9,000.00, Ryan Molitwenik and Rod Dubland (owner’s of Heartwood Homes Ltd) raised $7,525.00 and Dean Barnard (Summit Financial) raised $4,000.00.

Betty Johnson did a terrific job entertaining.

I would like to thank all 15 artists who contributed, the fundraising  group, auctioneer, the liquor stores, the wineries and all the corporate sponsors who made such a successful event.  I also want to thank you who attended and supported us.
