Three Langley wineries are bringing the â€œsipâ€, while Artâ€™s Nursery is providing a whole lot of Christmas â€œsparkleâ€ for next Wednesdayâ€™s charity Sip & Sparkle.
For the second year running, Artâ€™s is hosting a Christmas-themed fundraising evening in the 192nd Street nursery, with all proceeds from the night going to the Langley Sunrise Rotary Club.
Itâ€™s a fun night with wine tasting provided by Vista Dâ€™Oro, Township 7, and Backyard vineyards, a fashion show coordinated by Vanilla Clothing, and entertainment by Langley country singer Karen Lee Batten.
The event was initiated last year, more as a ladies night, where 200 people came out to mingle, shop, and raised $3,000 for the Fort Langley dragonboat teamâ€™s recent trip to Italy, said Artâ€™s plant boss Rebecca van der Zalm (otherwise known as the operations manager).
Now in itâ€™s second year now, the Nov. 19 event welcomes men. Tickets are $25 each and still available through the nursery or by calling 604-371-0071.
Organizers are expecting to have raffles and 50/50 draws throughout the night, and an interactive photo booth will also be included.
The event runs from 6 to 9 p.m.
In addition to the ticketed fundraising event on Wednesday, Artâ€™s is also hosting its popular family open house the next night.
Again running from 6 to 9 p.m. on Nov. 20, this event is open to the public.
â€œPeople are invited to come and get in the Christmas spirit,â€ van der Zalm said.
There will be Christmas carollers and good cheer â€“ in the form of hot chocolate and mulled wine â€“ served up.
