December 14 to December 31

At a ceremony the evening of December 13, the Kamloops Art Gallery was one of seven community organizations honoured with a legacy gift in recognition of our contribution to the 2018 BC Winter Games held here in February.

Fundraising Events Coordinator Judy Basso worked to bring the Friends of the Games reception to the Gallery by donating time and resources to realize a successful event in a key downtown space; the TNRD Civic Building which houses the Kamloops Art Gallery. For her part, Executive Director Margaret Chrumka volunteerd her time as the Food Services Volunteer Chair for the Games over an 18 month period bringing over 600 volunteers to the Games to serve breakfast, lunch and dinner to the 1,200 athletes and coaches during their stay.

The Kamloops Art Gallery is proud of this legacy gift which recognizes our contribution to supporting youth and their efforts as well as to the health and livability of the city of Kamloops.

Our thanks to the BC Winter Games Society, 2018 BC Winter Games President Niki Remesz, all the volunteer Directors and Chairs, along with hundreds of volunteers, coaches, athletes and supporting family members and friends who brought such a successful Games to Kamloops.

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.
