Canvas and Cabernet: Supporting the arts in Lacombe


(L-R) Community Services Executive Assistant Maureen MacKenzie receives a donation cheque from Chateau Wines & Spirits owner Murray Tornack and sommelier Emily Birtwell.
When we all work for a common cause, great things can happen! On Wednesday April 6, 2016, artist Danielle Folkerts and Sommelier-in-training Emily Birtwell of Chateau Wines & Spirits in Lacombe hosted Canvas & Cabernet, an evening of painting and wine sampling. Chateau Wines & Spirits owner Murray Tornack generously donated the proceeds from the event to the Lacombe Arts Endowment Fund.

"The Arts Endowment Committee is very grateful for Murray's thoughtful donation, and for Emily and Danielle's work in the community to increase awareness of the arts in Lacombe," said Maureen MacKenzie. "They make an incredible team, and we couldn't be happier with the difference they are making in the arts every day."

"A big thank you to everyone who attended the event, and to Danielle, Murray and Emily for their generous donations of time and funds," said MacKenzie. "It's people like you who make Lacombe such a special place to live and work in."

The Lacombe Arts Endowment Fund provides grants for further education in the arts, and special projects for Lacombe and area residents.
