Handcrafted tree ornaments help families

Invermere Family Resource Centre selected as this year's charity.

This Christmas, why not give the perfect gift?

Purchase an original piece of art with proceeds benefiting charity. Definitely, this gift keeps on giving.

You can choose beautifully handcrafted ornaments for your own tree or give them as an original gift and keepsake. This highly successful event was created by Heather Cuell and Daryl DaCosta, involving gallery artists who create Christmas tree ornaments with 100 per cent of the proceeds going directly to a local charity.

In 2009, the Family Resource Centre was the beneficiary of money raised; in 2010, proceeds went to the Invermere District Hospital Emergency Department; and in 2011, the recipients were the WISH (Women’s Information and Safe Home). This year, the gallery will donate the proceeds to the Invermere Family Resource Centre.

Come and enjoy our beautifully decorated tree, find that perfect gift and give back to our community in the true spirit of Christmas. Gallery artist Christine Simpson will be creating art on Saturday (November 17) from 4 to 8 p.m. Christine’s Christmas ornaments will also be on display.
