Have fun, support the arts at first-ever Collective ball

Inaugural event to support Society for Arts on the South Island

Coast Collective is hosting a Black and White Ball arts fundraiser next Friday (Oct. 17) at Olympic View Golf Club in support of the Society for Arts on the South Island and the operation of the Coast Collective Art Centre on Esquimalt Lagoon.

Latin-infused R&B band Groove Kitchen will get guests’ toes tapping and hips swinging as music winds through the rooms. As well, hot and cold appetizers will be making the rounds to satisfy peckish inclinations, and art lovers can peruse the many entries into the anonymous Art Squared sale of 12-inch square works. The event will also feature a cash bar and silent auction.

Dress is ‘formal to funky’ and everyone is welcome to come support the arts or perhaps contribute to the vibe with their own creative impulses with on-site collaborative art-making.

The ball is from 8 to 11 p.m., 643 Latoria Rd.

Tickets are $55 including tax and are available in person at Coast Collective, 3221 Heatherbell Rd., by phone at 250-391-5522 or online at coastcollective.ca.
