The Municipality of Clarington presented cheques totaling nearly $40,000 to two local not-for-profits last week, the proceeds of the 2022 Clarington Garden Party Gala, a celebration of the vibrant local arts community held in June on the grounds of the Sarah Jane Williams Heritage Centre in Bowmanville.
The Clarington Garden Party Gala supported the Visual Arts Centre of Clarington (VAC) and A Gift of Art. With Clarington Mayor Adrian Foster and several councillors on hand, VAC Executive Director Dionne Powlenzuk and A Gift of Art Director Ann Harley were each presented with cheques for $19,788.51 from the successful summer gala.
