The Arthur Child Heritage Museum of the 1000 Islands presents the 11th Annual Summer Evenings in the Islands Gala & Fundraiser event. Join us Thursday, July 12th, 2018 aboard the Gananoque Boat Line for an evening filled with refreshments, silent auction, celebration and, of course, stunning views of the beautiful Thousand Islands from the water.
A special thank you to all our sponsors whose support makes this event possible, including Georgina Ratcliffe and Chestnut Park, Brian Knudsen and CIBC Wood Gundy, and Neil McCarney and the Gananoque Boat Line.
Arrive at 6:00 at the Arthur Child Heritage Museum for a celebratory glass of wine and join us as we open the two new permanent exhibits. Gananoque was once called the Birmingham of Canada, with important manufacturing plants – time we celebrated this epoch through the exhibit of industry and innovative thought (sponsored by Grant and Alice Burton). In the First Peoples’ exhibit we acknowledge traditional territory of the Anishinaabe and Haudenosaunee cultures of this region and take a glimpse at their world view and traditions (with thanks to our consultant, Eartha).
7:00 board the Thousand Islander V - compliments of the Gananoque Boat Line. Ample Refreshments, and Hors d'Oeuvres (Light and fresh summer bites!) Our annual silent auction table and most of all, a beautiful tour of our Thousand Islands.
Return to the mainland at 9:00 p.m.
This is the third year that Georgina Ratcliffe and Chestnut Park have supported our Gala, and the second year for Brian Knudsen and CIBC Wood Gundy. Their generosity is what makes our community so special. This year the generous support from Neil McCarney and the Gananoque Boat Line means our Summer Gathering will be an outstanding one.
