Baskets with Panache: Ticket Giveaway

It should come as no surprise that I'm a fan of the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum.   Recently, they contacted me to host a giveaway to Baskets with Panache.

This is a charity event that raises money for children and youth with financial and physical challenges to attend the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum's educational programs.  Since 2007, this annual event has raised over $250,000.

When: Wednesday June 19th from 6:30-9:30
Where: The new Learning Centre at the Canada Agriculture and Food Museum
The event will feature: 
  • Seasonal Canadian hors-d'oeuvres and beverages by Thyme & Again Creative Catering 
  • Award-winning Prince Edward County wines and specially selected summertime beers 
  • Entertaining live auction conducted by Ottawa's own Stuntman Stu 
  • Live music featuring eclectic blend of blues, jazz and Dixieland 
  • Silent auction of a wide range of impressive gift “baskets”
The gift baskets up for auction this year sound great!  Here are just a few examples:

1) Famed food writer and author Gay Cook invites you and seven friends (or clients) to her home, Bayne-Morrison House — Ottawa’s oldest home (1828) — for a delectable dinner in an unforgettable setting.

2) The chefs at Thyme & Again Creative Catering will create a selection of gourmet seasonal hors d’oeuvres for you and 11 guests at The Exposure Gallery, their private Photography Gallery located in the heart of Wellington West.

3) Renowned chef Michael Blackie prepare a Chef’s Table for six in your very own home!  Exquisite food and wine pairings and full tableside service for you and your guests.

Cost: Usually tickets are $75 a piece, but I have two tickets to give away!
How to enter: Leave a comment on this post before Friday, June 14th at midnight (EST)

I am so, so keen to attend this event. I have heard such great things about the benefits that come from Baskets with Panache. Supporting kids now and giving them equal opportunity sets them up to be adults who make good decisions and give back themselves.
