On the evening of September 6th,  Oakville Galleries held their annual Dinner in the Gardens fundraiser and Sutton Quantum’s owner/broker of record Tina Gardin co-sponsored the palatial event for the fourth year in a row.Proceeds fund accessible, quality educational and artistic programming within the community. Sutton Quantum is proud to be the only official REALTOR sponsor of this year’s event.

The evening was an appeal to all senses. Guests dined at Gairloch Gardens, a 12-acre estate in Oakville, and enjoyed breathtaking views of thousands of artistically arranged flowers and foliage. Indeed, each plate of the lavish six-course meal was a work of art and was crafted from locally sourced food. Celebrated chefs who have overseen past Gairloch dinners include Jamie Kennedy, Massimo Capra, and Mark McEwan, and this year’s selection did not disappoint. Chef Brandon Olsen of Toronto’s La Banane and CXBO oversaw this year’s menu which featured a poptourri of French fusion with his own unique flair. La Banane was named best new restaurant in Canada this year by food and lifestyle website  Canada’s 100 Best.

In recent years, Oakville Galleries has recognized the need for increased accessibility for local arts programs and as a result has made it a priority to fund and spearhead free and low-cost programs within Oakville. This includes drop-in programs for kids in libraries, placements for low-income families in art classes and camps, and adapted, hands-on art workshops for seniors and adults living with developmental disabilities. In 2017,the gallery launched weekly art instruction for teens in psychiatric care at Oakville Trafalgar Memorial Hospital.

Gardin, who supports a number of worthwhile causes including the  Junior Diabetes Research Foundation,  is thrilled to be able to sponsor an organization which has made a tangible difference to so many throughout Oakville. “Art has a wonderful way of bringing people together, and that an event like this which is filled with so much beauty can help bring the art world to others is fantastic and something that we are so proud of,” she says.
