On Saturday June 6, make your way up north to the beautiful city of Kleinburg, where you’ll be treated to a phenomenal evening under the stars at the fourth annual Moonlight Gala 2015, brought to you by the McMichael Canadian Art Collection. With room for just 500 guests, this exclusive gala will have guests sipping on award-winning Ontario VQAs; indulging in a gourmet menu; enjoying live entertainment from internationally-acclaimed Latin Jazz musician Amanda Martinez; and enjoying the fabulous Beverly Thomson as the evening’s emcee. Not to mention a seriously killer auction.
Not sure what McMichael Canadian Art Collection is all about? It just happens to be the only major gallery in Canada with a mandate to collect Canadian art exclusively. Welcoming over 100,000 visitors annually, the gallery features almost 6,000 artworks by Tom Thomson, the Group of Seven, their contemporaries, and First Nations, Métis, Inuit and other artists. Cannot get more Canadian than that.
The evening under the stars is one that drives many of Toronto’s A-listers out of their cityscape sky and over to the beautiful Kleinburg space that houses McMichael ensuring that guests enjoy a magical evening of stars and nature. Fresh smell of pine anyone? The food is no different than the space with delicious delicacies created to evoke the guests’ senses, courtesy of the following (brace yourselves): Cashew & Clive, Daniel et Daniel, Encore Catering, On The Move Catering & Events, Presidential Gourmet, and last but not least Seventh Heaven.
With Beverly Thomson emceeing and Jeanne Beker and Catherine Nugent as two of the event’s honorary patrons, guests will be in fantastic company. Add to that a fabulous fete under the stars and it’s the perfect way to welcome summer and support Canadian art.
Consider the Moonlight Gala an epic kickoff to your summer soirees. Tickets are still available, so be sure to grab yours ASAP, here!
