The first ever Mayor’s Gala for the Arts - An Evening in Venice will take place on Friday, November 30 at Algoma’s Water Tower Inn.
Upon arrival at the Gala, guests will enter the magical world of Venice as they experience a European-style marketplace featuring Murano Glass, jewellery, gourmet Italian edibles, Italian leather accessories and beautiful floral arrangements. The evening will include a Venetian-themed dinner and a live auction showcasing luxury travel and recreation items. The highlight of the evening will be a performance by Interpreti Veneziani – a superb baroque string orchestra, from Venice, Italy.
