Thank you! $20,000 raised at The Mariposa Gala

Attendees at the Mariposa Gala

$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 night was an unforgettable experience. Andre Derrick, Vineland Estates Winery's sommelier, certified fromager took guests on a culinary journey of delicious wines and cheese pairings, accompanied by some of Orillia's premier restaurants.  It was a rare opportunity to witness one of Orillia's renowned artists, Dave Beckett, create a masterpiece in front of your eyes while enjoying the company of friends and family and live music from the Jazz Byrds.

During the evening’s festivities OMAH Chairman, Ted Markle, and Ninette Gyorody, Executive Director, provided a glimpse into the lives of the children who have gained the confidence and skills to achieve their goals through the power of art. With your support, we are already reaching the next generation of children and youth from the most marginalized communities in Simcoe County.

We encourage you to stay in touch with OMAH throughout 2018. We hope that you will join us again on Friday April 26, 2019 to celebrate at our Mariposa Gala.
From the entire Orillia Museum of Art & History staff and Board of Directors, we once again extend our sincere gratitude to you and all of our sponsors for your astounding support.
A special thank you to the TD Bank Group for being OMAH’s title sponsor.
