Gala raises funds for key programs

The North Okanagan Community Life Society’s annual Art and Wine Gala is Feb. 22 at the Eclectic Med.

The only thing better than a night of good food, wine and art is a night of good food, wine and art with a cause.

The North Okanagan Community Life Society’s annual Art and Wine Gala is Feb. 22 at the Eclectic Med.

The event includes a five-course meal, with an Okanagan wine pairing at every course, and a wine and art auction.

“The best way to describe this evening is wow,” said Garry Molitwenik, executive director of NOCLS.

“It is an amazing event and no one is ever disappointed.”

Funds from the gala will go towards programs for developmentally disabled adults.

“It is extremely important. Budgets are tight and it alleviates a lot of pressure for sustaining our organization,” said Molitwenik.

There are a few tickets left and they can be purchased for $125 each from Colin at the Village Green Liquor Store, Andrew at Eclectic Med, Pippa at Designers Gallery or Garry at 250-545-5153.
