The Fine Art Auction & Gala Fundraiser on November 10, 2018 was a great success!

Thank you to all artists, guests, volunteers & purchasers for their support and involvement!

The event invited guests to enjoy an elegant three-course meal, a professionally-conducted live art auction, and a visually stunning silent auction at the beautiful Prestige Oceanfront Resort Ballroom in Sooke.

The Sooke Fine Arts Society (SFAS) partnered with the West Coast Grill to bring an exciting evening of delicious food and award-winning art.

The event was in support of the SFAS Youth Art Scholarship Fund & the Sooke Food Bank. It was a wonderful evening and many delighted guests departed with unique regional art to adorn their walls.

The Youth Art Scholarship Fund

The Youth Art Scholarship fund was established in 2014 to assist young artists in pursuing post-secondary studies in the arts. Scholarships have been made possible through fund-raising efforts like the Gala, with support from arts patrons, community partners, volunteers, regional artists, and local businesses.

Please refer to our Youth Opportunities section to see a variety of ways in which youth might get involved in the arts.
