What’s in Store: Time for a sip


Three Langley wineries are bringing the “sip”, while Art’s Nursery is providing a whole lot of Christmas “sparkle” for next Wednesday’s charity Sip & Sparkle.

For the second year running, Art’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.

It’s a fun night with wine tasting provided by Vista D’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 team’s recent trip to Italy, said Art’s plant boss Rebecca van der Zalm (otherwise known as the operations manager).

Now in it’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, Art’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. 

“People are invited to come and get in the Christmas spirit,” van der Zalm said.

There will be Christmas carollers and good cheer – in the form of hot chocolate and mulled wine – served up.
