Rumble in the Jungle: Bloedel Conservatory Fundraising Gala January 30

A couple of weeks ago, I posted about the upcoming closure (due to a budget shortfall) on April 30, 2010, of the Bloedel Floral Conservatory, the domed nature conservatory that sits atop Queen Elizabeth Park.

If you’re as upset about the impending closure as I am, you have a chance to do something fun and helpful this coming weekend: attend the Rumble in the Jungle fundraising gala on January 30, 2010.

Organized by the non-profit Friends of the Bloedel to raise funds to keep the Conservatory open, the Rumble in the Jungle gala will be a night to remember. Taking place at the Conservatory itself, 200 – 300 guests will enjoy jungle-themed food and drink, Tahitian fire dancers, live music from Vancouver musician Dal Richards, and “surprises galore”.

Tickets for Rumble in the Jungle are $125 each or $200 for a pair, and are available from Southlands Nursery, 655 Balaclava St. (604-261-6411), Bacci’s at 2788 Granville St. (604-733-4933) and Thomas Hobbs Florist, 2129 West 41st Ave. (604-261-5998).

For more information, call Terri Clark at 778-866-9875 or John Coupar at 604-818-2756, two of the event’s organizers.
