Centennial Belles Symphony in White fundraiser Aug. 9

A Symphony in White, Tea on the Terrace and more on the Alberni arts scene this week.

Symphony in White

The Centennial Belles are set to present another fabulous historical fashion show titled, Symphony in White. This exquisite fashion show will take place on the terrace at the Rollin Art Centre, Sunday, Aug. 9 from 2-4 p.m. with music by Sandy Bouleau. Proceeds from this fashion show will help benefit the Rollin Art Centre’s many programs.

“The Belles are presenting this show to the public strictly as a fundraiser for the RAC and their summer children’s arts program,” said Tricia Knight.

“The Belles wish to foster and encourage art in the community and feel that our children deserve to be exposed to as many forms of art as possible.”

Tickets are $20 and include refreshments. Tickets are on sale now at the Rollin Art Centre.

Tea on the Terrace

The Rollin Art Centre is very lucky to have a great musical lineup this year to help our summer Teas on the Terrace fundraiser. Yes, you heard right, when you purchase your tickets you are also helping to raise funds for the Rollin Art Centre. This is a wonderful way to spend an afternoon, while helping to raise much needed funds for the Rollin Art Centre; listening to music, catching up with friends and experiencing the Rollin Art Centre’s “high tea” under the canopy of trees. This year’s delicious treats are created by Harvest Thyme Fine Foods. Tickets are on sale at the Rollin Art Centre, so don’t miss out, as seating is limited, and sell-outs are already happening. Tickets are $12 seniors/students, $15 adults and $10 for children under 12.

Teas begin at 1 p.m. and run until 3 p.m.
