2020 Dinner Under the Stars is now over and we look forward to offering a similar event next summer. Thank you to everyone who donated their time and expertise to make this event a great success. Funds raised at this event help support educational programming at Allan Brooks Nature Centre.

During these times, making connections with nature is more important than ever for the mental and physical health of children and adults. We need your help to connect people with nature. The impacts and restrictions in place due to COVID have prevented ABNC from hosting our three largest annual fundraisers – our gala and garage sales.  With your financial support you can help us to be here tomorrow, next month, next year and into the future for our community, our schools, the children and visitors.

At ABNC, we are committed to providing environmental education for children and adults through nature related activities. In this our 20th Anniversary year, I am excited to share that Allan Brooks will be reopening in July and will still hold the (modified) popular summer camps and programs for children of all ages.

Allan Brooks Nature Centre is working hard to be there tomorrow, next month, next year and into the future for our community, our schools, the children and visitors. In order to do this, we must remain financially sustainable. ABNC has come up with enterprising fundraising alternatives that comply with the current Provincial pandemic restrictions. We are auctioning off 4 very special, private Dinner Under the Stars events based on a popular dinner piloted last summer.  Each four-course dinner for 8 will be unique from the exceptional international chefs, to the finest cuisine, exquisite wine paired menus and entertainment, all held up at Allan Brook’s beautiful setting.  Envision four different themes and world class dining. Imagine a mouth-watering Moroccan meal that will tantalize your senses of smell and taste, while bringing you this North African country’s finest food. How about East Meets West cuisine? Imagine ending your meal with the best German pastry dessert? How about a dinner specially designed just As You Like It. One of last year’s attendees said, “the entire evening was magical with its panoramic views, savory food, gifted entertainment in a gorgeous natural grassland setting made for an enchanting evening! Absolutely priceless memory!!!” It’ll sure be a night to remember; multiple courses for 8 people; wine, food and entertainment and the BEST VIEW IN VERNON.  The only thing we don’t provide are shooting stars, but you might be lucky to see some!

 If you’ve been feeling cooped up, and missing your friends, I invite you to indulge your senses; bid on any or all of the dinners.  It’s a win-win; you and your guests enjoy an amazing experience, all while helping Allan Brooks keep the doors open for local children in 2020-21.  ABNC will even give income tax receipts for successful bids surpassing the Fair Market Value of the Dinner, so feel free to bid high!We invite you to indulge your senses; bid on any or all of the dinner events.  It’s a win-win; you and your guests enjoy an amazing experience, all while helping Allan Brooks keep the doors open for local children in 2020-21.  We will even give income tax receipts for successful bids surpassing the Fair Market Value of the Dinner, so feel free to bid high!
