Wellies to Wishes – An Art Event in Support of Dufferin Children’s Fund

Something wonderful is happening this weekend!  The Third Annual “Wellies to Wishes” will be happening at the Dufferin County Museum.  Wellies to Wishes is an event organized by the amazing staff at Dufferin Child and Family Services.  All proceeds go towards the Dufferin Children’s Fund.

The goals of Dufferin Children’s Fund are to raise awareness of the needs of children and families within our community as well as to raise funds locally to enrich services to these families.  You can read more about the Children’s Fund HERE.

There are many new and exciting things in store for this year’s event.  Your taste buds will be delighted with the variety of appetizers from local restaurants.  You will even have the opportunity to sample the event’s signature drink.  A live auction will also be present.  On top of many beautiful pieces of art from local artisans being auctioned off, you also have the chance to bid on a number of “packages”.  These range from a “Love to Ride” package from Rawhide Adventures to a “Wellness Package” which includes a three month martial arts membership at The Orangeville Dojo, a three month membership from Headwaters Racquet Club, pampering package from Bodyworks, gift certificate from Black Birch Restaurant, package from Simple Indulgence and gift set from Odds and Errands.  The value of this package alone is about $750!  WOW!!

For more information, please contact Jacqueline Moore of DCAFS at (519)941-1530, ext # 246 or via email.  Advanced tickets can also be purchased at Dufferin County Museum, Dufferin Child and Family Services and Cobwebs and Caviar in Shelburne.

In order to kick of the campaign earlier this year, we held a photo shoot at Orangeville Flowers and Greenhouse .  A special thanks to our lovely models for the day as well as Noinkee’s for their continued support of the community, Habit on Broadway for the lovely dresses and Cheryll Collins for coming and decking out our ladies in her gorgeous handmade silver jewelry!

Here’s an up close view of some of the stunning pieces of Cheryl’s handmade sterling silver jewelry.  For more information or to get in touch with Cheryll click HERE.  Her pieces are also on display at Noinkee’s, just through the tunnel off Broadway.
