A virtual evening of festive cooking and giving
Are you going stir crazy?
Kick off the holiday season by joining the Okanagan College Foundation and Coldwell Banker Jane Hoffman Realty for a fun-filled virtual evening of wine tasting and cooking that will have you recipe ready for the holidays and support the future of our community’s health.
Coming to your home virtually from Quails' Gate Estate library, Quails' Gate Senior Sommelier Louise Dabisza will take you on a guided tasting featuring several Quails' Gate wines. Louise will also share the perfect pairings for the season.
Get ready to stir, sizzle and bake alongside OC’s chefs and their students as you cook a gourmet meal that will give you new takes on holiday classics.
The food ingredients and wine list will be sent to you in advance. Upgrade the evening with a Festive Bag, which will include all the dinner ingredients pre-packed for you plus Quails' Gate wine ready to pick up at Okanagan College's Kelowna campus.
Get a head start on your gift giving by bidding on exclusive silent auction items, from staycations to adventure packages.
Season's Eatings is a fundraiser to support the Okanagan College Foundation's Our Students, Your Health campaign for a new Health Sciences Centre. All funds raised will support the education of frontline health care professionals for our community.
