If you’re a long time reader of this blog, you know how much I love the museums we have in this city. The Canada Agriculture Museum is one of our favourites. The fact that this former farm girl could take her suburban kids to an actual farm in the city was a big deal for me when I became a parent.
Our kids love going each year and checking out the animals, the grounds and the exhibits. We are really fortunate to be able to go and enjoy learning and living at the Farm.
Not all children get this chance though, and my good fortune is especially made clear to me when I think about how much fun my own kids have. But I want more kids to pet the sheep and learn about milking cows. That’s why I love the Museum’s program to raise money for kids to go to camp or visit the Farm that otherwise wouldn’t be able to.
Baskets With Panache is one of their major fundraisers. This fun-on-the-farm silent auction and entertaining evening will be held on June 19 at the Museum. I am so pleased to have been invited back again after going a couple of years ago. It’s a really wonderful evening for a good cause.
Check out the website for full details on the gastronomical delights that will be there, how you’ll be entertained and why this event is so important.
My friends at the Canada Agriculture Museum are giving away two tickets to Baskets With Panache to one lucky winner!
