LHP Photo Contest
Lighthouse Point’s first ever Photo Contest was a resounding success with over 300 photos submitted. Check out the 4 winning photos and honourable mentions in the gallery below!
After the difficult task of narrowing the 300 photos down to thirty amazing pictures for display, an evening Social and Silent Auction was held on Friday, August 12th. Over 50 people turned out to admire the beautiful artwork and bid on the photos to raise money for Georgian Bay Forever. Over $600 was raised, and prizes were given out for the winning photos.
We were extremely grateful to John Gabriele of Gabriele Photography who was an incredible support, giving freely of his professional advice and printing the photos at cost. Special guests at the evening social included Penny Skelton of the Crow’s Nest Gallery and Bob Madigan of the Collingwood Town Council.
All the attendees were impressed with the amazing calibre of artistry from our Lighthouse Point residents, and many people expressed the wish that this is will be an annual event. So get snapping!
