The first annual Appetite for Art fundraiser and art auction is tomorrow night at the Kelowna Art Gallery. The culture and culinary event will feature dozens of art pieces and offerings from five of the region’s best chefs.
“It’s going to be an art and appetite extravaganza,” says marketing and events coordinator Joshua Desnoyers.
“We’ve paired some amazing local cuisine from five of the finest chefs… paired with a selective beverage by a winery, beer or spirits provider.”
The art pieces up for auction will be works from forty different artists and will culminate in a live auction of four selected works and other items such as getaways, dining packages and a hockey package to Vancouver to see the Canucks play the Detroit Red Wings.
“We’re doing all this work to raise dollars for our children’s and educational programs here at the gallery,” says Desnoyers, adding the community has been on board since they starting talking to businesses last summer.
“They see the goal that we have in mind -- It is a fundraiser. I think now that we’re coming up to the event, people are really excited to be a part of it.”
Tickets are still available at the gallery, or you can purchase them online.
Some of the food and drink pairings include:
- Waterfront Wines paired with Mission Hill Family Estate
- RauDZ Regional Table paired with Okanagan Spirits
- Joy Road Catering and Okanagan Grocery paired with Tree Brewing Co
- Cabana Catering paired with Tinhorn Creek Vineyards
- Sugar Sweet Cupcakes paired with Quails’ Gate Winery
