Eat breakfast for the arts

Fundraiser for Maple Ridge arts programs

The Bergthorson Academy of Musical Arts and Delizie Italiane are organizing a fundraiser to raise money for arts scholarships for students who need financial assistance.

Proceeds of the fundraiser will go to the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Arts Council’s Arts Angels program.

Arts Angels provides free performance tickets and subsidized access to arts programs for those who would not otherwise have the opportunity to participate.

Delizie Italiane will be sponsoring the fundraiser by offering any one of its menu breakfasts and a cup of organic coffee for $10 – $5 of which will go towards our scholarship fund.

• The fundraiser takes place at Delizie Italiane, 22266 Dewdney Trunk Road on Saturday, Oct. 22 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. and will repeat every Saturday, if the first event’s a success.

 

Celebration

The Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows Arts Council will celebrate its 40th anniversary with a dinner-dance on Oct. 21 at the Pitt Meadows Golf Course. A community institution for the past four decades, the arts council has grown much since first incorporated as a society called the Community Arts Council of T’Lagunna in 1971. T’Lagunna is First Nations word for “Golden Ears”, the majestic mountain peaks that mark the horizon. Call the ACT for tickets.
