The North Columbia Environmental Society put on an excellent fundraiser for its Community Garden project drawing 110 people to the Village Idiot on Tuesday to enjoy sumptuous appetizers and taste new wines from the Okanagan.
The event was very well organized by Laura Gallagher and, of course, the appetizers from the 112, Paramjiit’s, the Village Idiot, the Modern, Mountain Meals and La Baguette were the center piece of the event. They were so good they didn’t last long. Those who enjoyed them also voted for their favourite appetizer. La Baguette’s offering was voted the best with the Village Idiot’s coming in second and the lively canapes from Paramjiit’s and Mountain Meals coming in third.
NCES President Hailey Ross said the event raised $986.50 which will be used to maintain the Community Garden project.
