OppArt 2010 – October 1, 2010 and OppArt 2011 – October 22, 2011 – DaVinci Centre, 195 Bay St.

Music, bar and viewing at 6pm. Main event begins at 7pm.  Light canapés will be served through this after-dinner event.  $200 per lottery ticket, which guarantees one piece of art
$20 entry for spectators

Why is it a lottery? There are 100 pieces of outstanding art and 100 lottery numbers. Throughout the evening, lottery numbers will be drawn at random. When your number is drawn you will get to choose a preferred piece from those that remain – and, unlike a regular lottery, every lottery ticket holder goes home with a piece of art.


Hit the Tap – September 20th-26th, 2010, please join local restaurants Fiamo Italian Kitchen, Swans Brewpub, Tapa Bar, The Reef and The Noodle Box in supporting the building of the Bwera Vocational Secondary School and Cultural Center.

When you dine at one of these amazing restaurants during this week you will be given the chance to donate $1 for a glass of tap water, something you would normally get for free.  100% of the proceeds from Hit the Tap will go towards the building of the school and cultural center, which will accommodate up to 800 kids who otherwise would not have the chance to go to school. By paying an optional $1 for your glass of water you will be helping kids to realise the dream of education.


Tight Knit – March 14, 2010 – 7 pm – The Superior

An auction of local, hand-crafted wonders, proceeds to benefit vocational school construction in Uganda.  Join us for a lively evening of drinks and music.  Tickets $25
