A wonderful evening was had by all with the amazing transformation of the Vernon Lodge ballrooms into the great outdoors! The evening started with a greeting from Houdini the owl from SORCO (South Okanagan Rehabilitation Centre for Owls) and continued on with a scrumptious dinner with “Upgrade your Table” Auction, Live Auction and many Silent Auction prizes. Sproing and Wayside Press provided a fun photo booth addition this year where participants could pose with their feather garb and feathery friends. ABNC appreciates the all the auction donations and we encourage everyone to support our local community sponsors!
