Harvest of Memories Gala and Fundraiser

Late September is usually the time of year where a lot of folks enjoy attending the annual Harvest of Memories Gala and Fundraiser in Crowsnest Pass. This event raises funds crucial for the operation of the Crowsnest Museum. Despite the cancellation of numerous events scheduled for Crowsnest Pass this year, due to COVID-19, the Harvest of Memories Gala will proceed “virtually” this Saturday (September 26), starting at 7:00 pm.

The event will include many of the features of the live Harvest of Memories Gala, including live auctions, draws, entertainment, and prizes. With the purchase of a VIP ticket, you will be eligible for special draws. These draws will be made throughout the evening, between 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm. One of the draws will include a framed, 10” X 5” Gushul B&W print, showcasing scenic Crowsnest Mountain. Thomas and Lena Gushul operated photo studios in Crowsnest Pass for many years. Their photographs are highly collectible and sought after.

VIP+ tickets will also be available. If you pre-purchase a VIP+ ticket, you will have your choice of dessert delivered to your door, along with a cool beverage (Crowsnest Pass residents only!) You will also get all the perks of the VIP ticket.

The online virtual Gala begins this Saturday (September 26) at 7:00 pm. Keep in mind, Crowsnest Pass is on Mountain Time. The event will be broadcast online and on local television (Shaw Cable – Channel 12). It can also be seen on the Museum’s YouTube Channel and Facebook.

If you live in Alberta, be sure to tune in at 7:00 pm. If you are in Victoria, British Columbia, it’s 6:00 pm. If you live in St. John’s, Newfoundland, you will need to be at your device at 10:30 pm. If you reside in Moscow, Russia, set your alarm clock for 4:00 pm., Sunday morning. For my Australian friends, it will be just after breakfast, at 10:30 am, Sunday morning!

If you are unable to attend virtually, you can place bids in advance, at your leisure. It’s very simple and easy to do. Below is the link to the Harvest of Memories Fundraiser.


Feel free to share this post with others. The great thing about holding a virtual fundraiser like this is that anyone can attend and participate, whether you live in Crowsnest Pass, or elsewhere. The monies raised go to a good cause. We are extremely fortunate to have a museum such as the one in Crowsnest Pass. The people who operate the museum and those who volunteer their time are doing an awesome job. Let’s help them out on Saturday!
