On Wednesday, November 16th, Our Harbour hosted a FUNdraising gala event at SLUC that we called Coming Together for Our Harbour. Over 60 of renowned Canadian artist Nancy Cousins-Viau’s curated oil paintings, featuring primarily fall and winter landscape scenes, were hung gallery style and available for purchase for a donation of $50 per painting. More than 70 guests enjoyed a glass of bubbly and reconnected with old friends as they browsed through the exclusive collection – many of which were snatched up as ideal Christmas gifts. Nancy Cousins-Viau delighted us by dropping in for a visit!
Four beautiful items were raffled, including two stunning quilts by the Mosaic/Mosaique Quilters’ Guild, an original Nancy Cousins-Viau painting and a high-end Nespresso coffee machine. See the four lucky winners above!
Guests could also purchase our exclusive collection of Our Harbour seasonal cards. A good time was had by all and now many of these lovely paintings so generously donated by Nancy, have found a new home!
A sincere thank you to all our sponsors and contributors: Nancy Cousins-Viau. Alexandra Mendes, Member of Parliament, Brossard—Saint-Lambert, Quebec, Carol Bulow for the stunning flower arrangements, Carole Théorêt, Master Quilter, Lyn Scott and Judy Csukly for donating the paintings featured on our Christmas cards, Monica Kerwin (Nespresso machine), Mosaîc/que Quilters’ Guild, Omer de Serres (bags and discount cards), St. Lambert United Church and the United Church Women.
