Business launch aids arts group

Tiger Lily events launch will benefit a Nanaimo arts group

A business launch will benefit a Nanaimo arts group.

Tiger Lily Events hosts a live and silent auction of visual art by Nanaimo artists, music from sax player Matt Carter, and a performance by dancer Holly Bright, plus appetizers and a no-host bar, featuring Longwood beer and Milestone Winery in support of Crimson Coast Dance Society.

“Tara Keeping of Tiger Lily Events has been an active supporter of Crimson Coast for some time, and we are grateful to her for agreeing to donate the proceeds of her company launch event to the society,” said Bright, Crimson Coast’s artistic director. “In these precarious times for public funding of arts groups such as ours, the support of community members and businesses ensures our programming.”

The event starts at 5 p.m. Wednesday (Nov. 23) at the Nanaimo Museum. Tickets are $25, and $20 from each ticket sold will be donated to Crimson Coast.  A tax receipt will be available.

Tickets are on sale at the museum, downtown Nanaimo Art Gallery or online at
