Presented by the Friends of the Fernie Heritage Library and The Arts Station.
Join us for an evening of glitz and glamour at this Gatsby themed soiree! On Saturday June 18th, the Friends of the Fernie Heritage Library and The Arts Station come together to present our semi-annual fundraising event The Arts and Letters Gatsby Gala 2011, created to raise valuable financial support for the enrichment of our community and children’s programming. The 2009 Arts and Letters Orient Express Gala provided subsidies to The Arts Station to improve access to community arts education and allow for the creation of a successful children’s theatre group: ‘Freckles Theatre.’ The Fernie Heritage Library was able to expand senior programming, which included a new weekly reading and film group at Rocky Mountain Village and also increased the frequency of outreach workshops and literary opportunities for local schools. Following the successful format of our 2009 Gala, this year’s fundraiser will again be a movable feast. The Gatsby Gala will be a glamorous event bringing together 100 library boosters and patrons of the arts. Set in the late 1920s and early 1930s, our guests will enjoy an evening of sophistication loosely themed on the Great Gatsby era. This event offers a unique opportunity for our community to celebrate and support these valuable community organizations. The programming and services by the Library and Arts Station are integral to the social fabric of Fernie and the surrounding areas. Contact Gail Adams for more information at 250-423-7122. Tickets are $100/per person.
