Sketches of Saskatoon – all dressed up in its finest – put in an appearance at last weekend’s Mayor’s Cultural Gala.
The Gala is the premiere fund-raising event in support the fine work of the Saskatoon Community Foundation.
Since its inception eight years ago, the event has raised over $2.5 million and provided funds to support over 150 charity grants annually.
This year’s event had a ‘Home Grown’ theme – featuring Saskatoon based talent.
Attendees at the gala were gifted with their very own copies of Sketches of Saskatoon. What could be more home grown that a collection of sketches of this beautiful city created by a fellow Saskatonian?
I am delighted to be able to put SOS to work in the service of supporting charities who do such great work to keep Saskatoon shining.
Come on down and join in the fun at Saskatoon’s Word On The Street event this Sunday afternoon, September 21.
For complete details on this year’s event, see Word On The Street Saskatoon. The program runs from 11 am to 5 pm.
It’s a chance to rub shoulders with authors from near and far, and connect will fellow wordies and book lovers.
You’ll find four tents, four stages, and a WOTS Marketplace.
At 2:30 pm in the Odyssey Tent, I’ll be sharing the scoop on how Sketches of Saskatoon came to be and answering your questions about the book.
I’ll also be sharing the stage with Jason Sylvestre and Carson Denmans who are the creators of the books, “You Might Be From Saskatchewan If…”
The forecast is for sunshine all the way. It’s going to be be a great day to be outdoors.
Spread the word! See you there!
