The Reach hosts annual Broads Brunch fundraiser

Event on April 13 in Abbotsford raises money for programs

The Reach Gallery Museum holds the seventh annual Broads Brunch @Brambles Bistro fundraiser on Saturday, April 13,

The event, which begins at 3:30 p.m., invites women to enjoy lively camaraderie over a buffet prepared by the bistro chefs, and sip a glass of cool sangria.

This year, it’s a celebration of Easter bunnies and bonnets, and guests are invited to wear a fashionable hat for a chance to win one of two fascinators from Roxanne’s Hats, along with a high-tea experience from Tracycakes Bakery Cafe.

Tanglebank’s green-thumb queen, Brenda Falk, will also demonstrate how to create a blossoming Easter/spring decor piece.

“But best of all, this no-fuss, no-muss delightful brunch is about raising crucial dollars for creatively interactive visual literacy and critical-thinking arts and heritage learning programs for kids to seniors at The Reach,” said Ingrid Epp, director of development at The Reach.

Tickets are $50 for members of The Reach and $55 for guests. They are available online at or by calling 604-864-8087.

Brambles Bistro is located at Tanglebank Gardens at 29985 Downes Rd.
