White Rock Museum & Archives officials will host a wine, cheese and chocolate reception on the museum’s outdoor plaza Sept. 24.
Council voted unanimously last week (Sept. 8) to approve a beer/wine garden for the event, which is aimed at raising funds for the museum and raising awareness of the newest exhibit, I Do! The Wedding Stories of White Rock.
The plaza – located on the waterfront side of the museum – will be fenced off for the occasion, which is to include beverage and food tasting stations, decorative lighting, background music and the opportunity to tour the exhibit.
Leisure services director Eric Stepura said council approval is needed because the event is to be held outdoors.
He recommended support, subject to organizers meeting conditions including proof of a minimum $5 million liability insurance and a special-occasions liquor licence – both of which were in place prior to the Sept. 8 council meeting – RCMP approval, food permits as required and a review of the planned layout by the fire chief.
The reception is limited to 130 guests, and tickets are $25.
For information or to reserve, stop by the museum (14970 Marine Dr.) or call 604-541-2221.
