Winners of the 2020 ART Raffle

The Gabriola Arts Council is pleased to announce the winners of the 2020 ART Raffle!

Andy Earle and Elyn Abernethy had the lucky raffle tickets, both of Gabriola Island. The paintings are being delivered to them today (Dec 24th) and both winners were very excited to receive the phone call.

Big thanks to everyone who purchased tickets, memberships, or made donations. We really appreciate your support. Many thanks to David Aris for partnering with us on this fundraiser.

Looking forward to celebrating the arts with community in 2021!
