Bidding on Baskets with Panache! at the Canada Agriculture Museum

The Canada Agriculture Museum Foundation will host its fifth annual Baskets with Panache! fundraising event on Wednesday, June 15 from 6:30 to 9:30 p.m. In its first four years the event has raised $125,000. Those donations translate to 10,000 children with financial or physical challenges being able to participate in exciting educational experiences. Taking place in a heritage barn at the Canada Agriculture Museum, the Baskets with Panache! event features the lively setting of a traditional country fair with some unique twists.

As members of the media, you are invited to an advance sampling of what guests to this unique event will experience, including:

  • Local, Canadian hors-d’oeuvres, by Thyme & Again Creative Catering;
  • Award winning Prince Edward County Wines; and
  • A tour of the Canada Agriculture Museum programs by Chairman Wally Parsons and community leader Gay Cook.
