Over the past five years, Pathways to Perennials of Kettleby, a member of LO, and Age of Bronze of Newmarket have together raised over $12,000 for the Southlake Cancer Unit in Newmarket. This June, the two companies again joined forces to host a charity art and jazz garden party, raising $3,500.

The crowd saw a spectacular evening of fantastic food, fabulous entertainment and fun company at the party in Kettleby, among the beautiful gardens at the Pathways to Perennials garden centre. The jazz duo Julian Fauth and Bob Vespaziani kept everyone entertained. The food by Pathways’ own café guru, Janet Hill, was unmatched. The fab food was accompanied with great wine, generously donated by Mario and Julie Testa, owners of Willow Springs Winery in Stouffville. Stuart MacLean, owner of Orleans Restaurant and Jazz Lounge in Newmarket, sponsored the band.

International sculptor Brett Davis of Age of Bronze Studio toured guests through the showcase gardens which featured many magnificent interior/exterior fine art sculptures.
The evening was capped off by a silent auction, which featured many items for both interior and exterior décor. Overall, a great evening was had by all.
