2016 Blank Canvas


MBCI held the first Blank Canvas fundraising event on Thursday, November 3 at the Centennial Concert Hall.   With over 160 guests in attendance, the evening was an inspirational success.  A beautifully displayed array of artwork from artists across Canada, alumni, our community and our students was the highlight of the evening!  Guests who purchased an Art Draw ticket received a number upon arrival – there was excitement in the air as the numbers began to be called and each guest chose their take home piece of art.  With live music performed by current MBCI parents and students, guests mingled taking in the Silent Auction artwork, Student Gallery and enjoyed a variety of refreshments including desserts from Cassidy’s Creations and a custom coffee creation from Thom Bargen.

We are thrilled to announce a net total of over $53,000!  All money raised will be put towards our most recent campus expansion helping to create facilities that have an impact on the student experience.
