A great time was had by all at the recent AGB benefit event "Brews and Blues" which raised over 5000 dollars to support the gallery and its mandate to grow and promote the arts culture of our community.

The silent auction table was a busy spot, as guests competed to get that final winning bid on a fantastic selection of mini original art, and our thanks go to all the artists who so generously gave of their time and talent with their donated pieces. Congratulations go to Dan Boileau and to David Maris for being the top fundraisers of the auction with their two very innovative and creative pieces which whipped up quite the bidding war!

The Fade Kings did a great job of keeping the joint hopping and bringing guests onto the dance floor. It’s not hard to tell that these guys have been playing together for over 20 years and are seasoned musicians. You can catch them November 1st at the Barley Room in Picton.

The AGB gratefully acknowledges the following sponsors....

Remax Country Classics                                Freymond Lumber

Baragar Funeral Home                                   TD Bank

Home Hardware                                               M.G Daly Funeral Home

A special thank you to Ray and Gail and the rest of the Bru-Kru at the Bancroft Eatery and Brew Pub for their outstanding hospitality and support.  The Krupas sponsored the highly popular wine and microbrew sampling, as well as a "Name the New Brew" contest. It was great fun and we look forward to more of those tasty brews ....Ray tells us they got some great name suggestions, so it will be interesting to see if one of them ends up on the label. After all, Bancroft is Ontario's most talented town, so creativity abounds!

Lastly, our sincere thanks go out to all the volunteers who worked on this event, and most especially to all those who supported the gallery with their attendance and had a blast in the process. Cheers!
