Art of Healing Exhibit & Event

Together – making a big difference!

Where can you enjoy a gala event, buy a wonderful new artwork, bid on exciting adventure packages, have a chance to win a trip for two to Paris, AND support healthcare in our community, all at once? At the Sechelt Hospital Foundation’s inaugural Art of Healing Event on Saturday October 20th, that’s where!

During this year’s Art Crawl from October 19-21, participants visiting our venue at the Sunshine Coast Golf and Country Club will have an opportunity to view the work of 36 generous and talented Sunshine Coast artists who were inspired by the theme of healing. Visitors will be introduced to some of the Coast’s best artists, and at the same time learn how they can contribute to the Sechelt Hospital Foundation’s ongoing support of health care services, equipment, facilities, and health education, to the benefit of all Sunshine Coast residents.

The Art of Healing Event on Saturday October 20th, 2018 will be a memorable evening with opportunities for a range of exciting levels of participation.  Thirty-six art Collectors holding $500 tickets will select from the artworks displayed as their numbers are called. Imagine the drama as painting after painting is selected!  No doubt each ticket holder will have a favourite or two, but each and every Collector will walk away with an original artwork valued between $500 and $5,000. The donated works can be previewed below.

But that’s not all…art Supporters holding $50 tickets will have the chance to bid on various very attractive live auction packages. We’ll reveal details of these as the event approaches!

And everyone, whether or not they plan to attend the Art of Healing event, can purchase $20 raffle tickets for a chance to win a trip for two to Paris! The prize includes round-trip airfare courtesy of WestJet, $2500 travel expense cash (courtesy of a generous donation given in memory of John Nicholls), and the services of a personal travel agent—courtesy of TravelOnly– to assist with your trip planning. Only 1,000 raffle tickets will be sold, so get yours today!

Collector and Supporter tickets will go on sale via ONLINE sales ONLY, at 8 am on Friday September 7th.  All tickets are available on a first-come, first-served basis.  We expect the event to sell out, so be sure to get your tickets sooner than later!

The Sechelt Hospital Foundation wishes to sincerely thank the contributing artists and our many corporate and private sponsors for this event. We look forward to a very exciting event that will help us continue to support the idea that the best medicine (and art) is local!
