We are pleased to announce that along with Operation Come Home (OCH), we raised $22,000 at Big Art Come Back.

We are grateful to everyone who attended and who participated in the silent and live auctions. Thank you to Mayor Jim Watson for supporting our event by stopping by.

Special thanks to the artists who generously contributed their artwork, to Lawrence Greenspon for being our auctioneer and to the Board members, Scrivens Insurance and Investment Solutions, the National Arts Centre, Lord Elgin Hotel, and artist Jacqueline Milner, who provided silent auction items.

We would also like to thank Good Eats for providing the delicious food, Beau’s All Natural Brewing Company for providing the beer, Starbucks for providing the coffee, and Wallack’s Art Supplies for providing the easels. Last but not least, thank you to all of the volunteers who helped with set-up, and serving the food and drinks.
