A cocktail hour will be provided by Okanagan Spirits, which will be concocting three different cocktails from the 1920s, including the Bee’s Knees, made with Okanagan Spirits handcrafted gin, fresh lemon juice and a dash of honey.

There will also be a catered dinner buffet, live entertainment by the Voix Du Couer Ensemble, along with a live art auction.

The event will take place on Saturday, June 24 from 4-9:30 p.m.
