What’s Happening at the Kootenay Gallery – March 2018

LAST CHANCE: Get-Away Travel Lottery

The Kootenay Gallery in Castlegar is offering you an opportunity to win your choice of one of two great get-aways. Want to stay longer? You can arrange your flight dates to accomodate that.

New York Broadway Get-Away

The first choice is a three-night get-away for two to New York City’s world-reknown Broadway District in the heart of Manhattan. The package includes flight to and from a major Canadian or US city to New York, three night’s stay in your choice of one of three luxury hotels in Manhattan, your choice of dinner for two at one of four fabulous near-by restaurants and two tickets for a current Broadway show.

or Ultimate Sports Fan Package

If that doesn’t appeal to you, the winner can choose a two-night trip for two to the US or Canadian city of your choice to watch a regular season sporting event including MLB, NBA, NFL, NHL or Non-Major PGA Golf Tournament. The trip includes lower level seats at the sports event, a flight to and from a major Canadian or US city and two nights stay in a high-quality hotel, such as a Hyatt, Marriott or similar in the vicinity of the stadium.

The Gallery is limiting available tickets to 125 so your chances of winning are excellent. There is a $100 cash prize available as well. 

Tickets are priced at $100 each and are available at the Castlegar branch of Heritage Credit Union, at the Kootenay Gallery or from the Gallery Board of Directors.  By purchasing a ticket you will be supporting the continued operations of the Gallery and our up-coming relocation project. Tickets can be purchased until 4:30 pm, March 12. The prize draws will be held live on our other community sponsor, The Goat (99.3 FM) on March 16.

What’s Been Happening

Oh what a night! Everyone seemed to go away happy with bowls and wine glasses tucked under their arms and their tummies full of amazing soups, chocolate, bread and wine. For the second year in a row, chef James Varghese who works with Florio Vassilakakis at the Nineteenth (Castlegar Golf Club) won the coveted Peoples Choice Award with their Carrot Coconut Mango soup. It was a close competition and the soups were the best ever.

The Kootenay Gallery couldn’t make this happen without the participation of the following businesses: Kim’s Creations, The Black Rooster, The Grand Buddha Bistro, The Lion’s Head, the Wandering Greek Oven and the Nineteenth. Fourteen local potters contributed hand-crafted bowls at a very reduced price. Many of them have work in our Gift Shop and we encourage you to support them year-round. Thank you to our generous sponsors, Zelstoff Celgar, Krueckl Financial Services, The Fireside Inn, Hester Creek Wineries and Safeway. Big thanks to all our volunteers and staff for making this happen. And our appreciations to everyone who bought a ticket and brought their appetites and good humour. See you next year!
