Coming Together for Our Harbour:  Oh, What a Night!

Happy raffle winners: L-R: Sabine Bulow (standing in for her mom, Carol), Neil Bonnema, Marie Muldowney, and Francine Weston.

On Wednesday, November 16th, Our Harbour hosted a FUNdraising gala event at the SLUC we called Coming Together for Our Harbour.

Over 50 of renowned Canadian artist Nancy Cousins-Viau’s curated oil paintings, primarily featuring 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 herself delighted us by dropping in for a visit!

Four lucky raffle winners (see above) walked away with two stunning quilts by the Mosaic/Mosaique Quilters’ Guild, an original Nancy Cousins-Viau painting and a high-end Nespresso coffee machine donated by Monica Kerwin.

Over $3,500 was raised! THANK YOU ALL!
