UBC Okanagan’s gala event and fundraiser, Art on the Line is celebrating its 15th year Feb. 25.

The gala, which raises money to support student art exhibitions and activities, is a unique auction where participants purchase a lottery ticket to win a piece of art.

As the evening progresses, tickets are randomly drawn for participants to pick the artwork of their choosing.

With 145 works available, even the last ticket drawn can choose from several pieces.

After the last ticket is pulled, the remaining artwork becomes available for purchase.

This year, 115 auction tickets are available at the early bird price of $175. Each ticket admits two people and entitles them to an evening of live entertainment, food, and one piece of art.

Early bird pricing ends Jan. 9, when tickets increase to $190.

Along with supporting UBC Okanagan’s Creative Studies students, this year’s proceeds will also support Kelowna’s Bumbershoot Children’s Theater and the Alternator Centre for Contemporary Art.

Tickets for those not wishing to participate in the auction are available for $10 at the door on the day of the event.

Doors open at 6 p.m., art draw begins at 7:30 p.m. at the Fipke Centre, UBC Okanagan, 3247 University Way, Kelowna.
