$20,000 raised in support of OMAH's programming for at-risk children and youth
We want to extend a special thank you to all of OMAH’s friends and sponsors who attended and supported The Mariposa Gala hosted at Lakehead University. Our marquee gala has raised over $20,000 which will be invested towards our programming to serve at-risk children and youth, providing them with the tools they need to thrive and succeed.
The Orillia Museum of Art & History has been named the 2018 recipient of the Ontario Society of Artists Cleeve Horne Purchase Award and used the award to acquire two works by local artist Tanya Cunnington.
We are proud to present The Mariposa Gala in support of Orillia Museum of Art & History’s children’s programs. Following the success of last year’s wine and cheese event, we will be joined again by sommelier and certified fromager Andre Derrick from Vineland Estates. He has chosen a wonderful selection Vinelands wines paired with fine Canadian cheeses featuring some of our local food purveyors to compliment the wine in the company of friends, colleagues and family.
