Riverkeeper Gala: Deconstructed

What does a gala deconstructed look like?

Our Riverkeeper Gala: Deconstructed, presented by the Insurance Bureau of Canada, will include:

Goodies.    Adventures.    Libations.    Auction.



Special deliveries to your door (curbside pick up option will also be offered) of delicious food and beverages from Thyme & Again, and carefully curated exclusive gifts from local suppliers. There will be two deliveries - one special “river pick-me-up” on June 18th and one on August 26th between 12 noon to 6 pm.
