The Mayor’s Gala for the Arts will shake, rattle, and roll you back to the time of bubble gum, Root Beer desserts, and jukeboxes, as the Coast Kamloops Hotel & Conference Centre is transformed into a Fabulous Fifties Fundraiser on Saturday, January 19, 2019.
Guests will enjoy a gourmet meal created by Chef Romeo from Romeo’s Kitchen and Spirits surrounded by beautiful 1950s décor. The gala is also known for its captivating live entertainment, and this year will feature rockin’ 50s music and dance. New for this year, guests are invited to keep the party going and put on their dancing shoes for a post-gala dance, with live music by Richard Graham’s Backbeats.
The night isn’t all about a retro gourmet dinner with live entertainment and dancing though. A silent auction with items including travel packages, event tickets, and restaurant experiences will delight guests, as well as a raffle for an exciting grand prize. Richard Graham’s Backbeats will also perform as a live jukebox during the event, with a pay-to-play donation driving the songs.
Tickets are $125, and available from Kamloops Live! Box Office, 250-374-5483 or www.kamloopslive.ca. The Mayor's Gala for the Arts is a collaborative partnership that brings together the City of Kamloops, Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops Symphony, and Western Canada Theatre, to celebrate the arts and culture sector of Kamloops. The Mayor’s Awards for the Arts will be presented at the 12th annual Mayor’s Gala for the Arts on January 19, 2019. The event is presented by the City of Kamloops, Kamloops Art Gallery, Kamloops Symphony, and Western Canada Theatre.
