The Winds of
Change Gala raises funds for youth education; environmental stewardship on Wednesday
Where can you eat a gourmet meal, take in a live concert, bid on auction
items and watch a film, all for $50? At Collingwood’s Gayety Theatre, of
course! And you can even buy tickets at the door.
The Winds of
Change Gala, now in its 7th year, packs value and fun together for a
great cause…er, causes. It’s put on by two
Collingwood charities: Elephant Thoughts and the Blue Mountain Watershed Trust.
The first organization focuses on childhood education, while the second helps
protect our local environment.
The event kicks
off at 6pm at the Gayety Theatre and the Blue Mountains Foundation for the Arts
next door. First off, tuck into a catered dinner and dessert by Bruce Wine Bar
and Heavenly Café, along with a complimentary glass of craft beer or local wine
from Northwinds Brewhouse and Georgian Hills Vineyard. (Cash bar to follow.) Then
there’s live music by nationally acclaimed folk rock band Harlan Pepper.
As if that
wasn’t enough, there are two auctions: one live and one silent. Items open for
bidding include a full year’s trial membership to the Lora Bay Golf Club, a
Blue Mountain Super Pass, a home-catered gourmet dinner for 8, 4 lift tickets for
Craigleith and Beaver Valley Ski Clubs (2015/16), SUP rental and lessons for 4,
dozens of gift baskets and certificates donated by local restaurants,
merchants, wellness practitioners and much, much more.
The evening is
topped off with a short Emmy Award-winning film, Years of Living Dangerously-Winds
of Change. The Gala is the crowning event of the Be the Change Film Series, a
monthly Wednesday night movie series in its 7th season. Movies are
shown on the last Wednesday of each month, October to April.
Last year’s Gala
was a tremendous success; this one will be even better (and with more elbow
room!). The public is invited to come for a scrumptious, entertaining evening
that will help promote childhood education and local environmental stewardship.
