Ross Creek Centre for the Arts goes Black and White…

Dining Area at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts Black and White fundraising event
Saturday night the 14th of April saw the second annual fundraising event at the Ross Creek Centre for the Arts in Canning, Nova Scotia – Black and White: The Sequel – and we were proud to be there to document it. The photo gallery of this exciting event (with a music track by Steve Dooks to evoke the mood of the evening) is to be seen by clicking on the Events tab. Ross Creek is a valuable asset to our community and Province, an education and development centre for the arts based in rural Nova Scotia. This fundraising dinner and art auction was well supported by artists and local businesses who made wonderful donations for the auction as well as by those who bought tickets to attend and bid on these. All the funds raised at this event will be used for “The Odyssey”, an exciting outdoor performance to take place at the Centre, adapted by Rick Chafe from the ancient Greek epic poem by Homer. This is “one of the most exciting projects in our history”. This will be featured at Ross Creek this summer, so stay tuned to the Centre’s website for further information.

The evening was based on a theme “Black and White” and the feel was of the forties, with Black and White movies playing all night in the main hall accompanied by Steve Dooks on Piano and the voice of Toni Pigot. After the auction and dinner, the party moved into the dimly lit Commodore Ballroom where dessert, tea and coffee and the Steve Dooks band awaited. The meal was prepared by Jeff, the Chef from On the Verge in Wolfville.

An unforgettable evening and we hope you will get a feel of it from the gallery.
