Potters host Night of Decadence

There will be great food, great music, auction items, door prizes and pottery on offer at the Night of Decadence March 6.

There will be great food, great music, auction items, door prizes and pottery on offer at the Night of Decadence hosted by the Cariboo Potters Guild coming up on March 6.

“We are super excited because one of our own potters is also a chef,” says potter Jude Prevost who is organizing the event with potter Caren Pritchard.

“Alison Mann will be overseeing all of the decadent appetizers and desserts and has some big plans for the event.”

While the menu isn’t confirmed yet, some of the items Mann was thinking about are vegetarian samosas, spanakopita and cheese cake, Prevost says.

Dean Fulton and Joel Gyselinck from the band Soupbone and musician Troy Forcier will be entertaining for the evening.

The $25 tickets for the Night of Decadence will include a plate made and donated by one of the potters, Prevost says.

“There will be a silent auction and tons of door prizes,” adds Prevost.

The event is a fundraiser to help the Cariboo Potters Guild to help purchase equipment antdtools to keep this very large and active community group functioning.

With 40 to 50 members in the guild, offering beginning pottery classes and helping out with various community causes, Prevost says the club’s tools and equipment take quite a beating.

Among other things the potters guild hosts an Empty Bowls fundraiser every second year for the Salvation Army Food Bank, and participates in the annual Earth Friendly Events, Children’s Festival, Medieval Market and also holds separate pottery sales each year.

There will also be a selection of pottery on display for visitors to enjoy and purchase.

“It will be a relaxing evening to enjoy some food and entertainment, a little something for all the senses,” Prevost says.

The Night of Decadence takes place at the Seniors Activity Centre on Friday, March 6 from 7 to 10 p.m.

There are only 100 tickets available, which can be purchased  at the Station House Gallery.
