MEDIA RELEASE – Cancellation Of Annual Garden Tour
June 15, 2020
Due to these unprecedented times, Thunder Bay Art Gallery has made the difficult decision to cancel this year’s Annual Garden Tour. While we are sad that we have had to cancel this perennial event, we look forward to coming back next year to celebrate the event’s 25th anniversary.
Over the past 10 years, the Annual Garden Tour has raised more than $100,000. All proceeds raised during this time have gone to support education and exhibition programming at the Thunder Bay Art Gallery. This incredible support over the years has meant so much to the Gallery, and the thousands of people who have benefited from the programming we have offered.
As one of the biggest fundraising events of the year, the loss of this revenue has been a real concern to us. To honour and commemorate the event, we will be introducing a special Garden Tour T-Shirt promotion over the summer. Starting XX you can purchase a Garden Tour t-shirt on the Gallery’s website at www.theag.ca. This promotion will run until July 19.
You can also make a donation to support any of the Gallery’s great programming initiatives.
We cannot wait to see you again next year for a bigger and better 25th Annual Garden Tour Event.
