Nature centre early bird deadline nears

The Allan Brooks Nature Centre’s Flights of Fancy dinner and auction is April 4 and the early-bird deadline is today

The early-bird deadline for the Allan Brooks Nature Centre’s Flights of Fancy dinner and auction is fast approaching.

Tickets purchased before today will be entered into a draw to win 50 auction bucks to put towards auction items during the event.

“Co-ordinators are fluffing up their feathers literally, prepping decorations for the fun-filled event,” said Julie Melanson, with ABNC.

“Attendees are encouraged to join the theme, accessorizing their attire with feather fascinators, lapels and jewelry.”

The event begins at 5 p.m. April 4 at the Best Western Vernon Lodge with live entertainment and a dance following the dinner and auction.

Each ticket purchase before today will receive five auction bucks to spend at the auction.

Tickets can be purchased at www.ticketseller.ca. Tickets are $65 each or $500 for a table of eight.
