Blink: The ImMACulate Garden Party

On August 24, 2014 we lucked out with a beautiful day at the Fairmont Hotel Macdonald Garden in downtown Edmonton. Thanks to the Mac and to everyone who came out to enjoy this underutilized downtown gem and to Visual Index Photography for the sweet photos!

In addition to the spectacular river valley view and delicious culinary treats from the Mac.

Folks played some classic garden games (bocce ball, lawn bowling, and croquet).

Guests learned about the historical (and modern) curiosities of the hotel and enjoyed the warm sun on the terrace.

The afternoon also featured local art from Lori Frank with delightful musical ambiance from Harpist Keri Lynn Zwicker.

Winner  walked home with a snazzy door prize of a collective art canvas from our attendees of the afternoon (materials discounted from the Paint Spot)! 


A lovely afternoon in the sun raising over $500 for Smudge and our furry friends at the Edmonton Humane Society. Heads up – Smudge is turning 7! Celebrate our friendly canine ambassador’s birthday in style on November 29, 2014.

What next? Don’t Blink – you might just miss us!
