“Enjoy an evening in the beautiful historic Benvoulin Gardens, with live music, gourmet food and great friends.” That is your cordial invitation from the Central Okanagan Historical Society (COHS) to attend the Benvoulin Garden Gala in support of heritage conservation and Benvoulin Park & Gardens.

 

There will be much to enjoy during the evening: a wine and beverage bar, canapes featuring seasonal favourites, live musical entertainment by Riverteeth, a silent auction, and guided tours of the Benvoulin Heritage Church and the gardens.

The Garden Gala will unveil plans for the restoration of the large garden and pathways, which will be renewed as a more traditional cottage garden and as a site to recognize individuals, families and businesses through donor/memorial bricks lining the paths.

COHS was formed in 1982 when a group of concerned citizens rolled up their sleeves to save and restore the Benvoulin Church. Since then, their work has continued with the conservation of and advocacy for other local heritage sites and buildings including Guisachan House & Gardens and Brent’s Grist Mill. The Society also provides tours and workshops to educate the community about the importance of heritage.

All proceeds from this year’s Garden Party will support the COHS’s conservation work and year round programming. Tickets are limited, and there is a ‘rainy day’ contingency plan in place.
