Summerside Spring Gala
THE MENU – We’re excited to be partnering again with Chef Emily McKeown of Fiveleven West. Chef Emily creates seasonal menus to reflect what is fresh & tasty throughout the year – so don’t expect the same items as last year – change keeps her team inspired & on their toes!
OUR EMCEE – Jeremy MacDonald is a local sports announcer whose voice can be heard at numerous venues throughout the Island including serving as the voice of the Summerside Western Capitals for the last nine years.
ENTERTAINMENT – Brian J Dunn is a singer-songwriter who delights his audiences with a blend of music and humour. A background of home-grown Celtic-Folk, coupled with the eclectic soulful and easy groove of the deep south (picked up while performing along the Gulf coast from Biloxi to New Orleans), has resulted in a unique yet familiar Americana music style you’re sure to enjoy. Brian will be joined on stage by fellow musician Jon Matthews.
LIVE & SILENT AUCTION – Lucky attendees will have a chance to bid on some really great prizes including two tickets anywhere West Jet flies (subject to blackout dates). Check back for a list of live and silent auction items as well as details on raffles.
