At the log house we\’d just started thinking about how our New Years Eve might look this year when a grand idea came across my desk – The Boots \’N Diamonds New Years Eve Gatherin\’.
This semi-formal evening of western and cowboy art, food and entertainment is set to happen just southwest of Calgary and features some of our favourite artists, artisans and live entertainment.
Best of all the evening ends with a live auction featuring some unique western art such as this original Shannon Lawlor painting.
A sweet and collectable vintage Gina Cohoe bronze.
A gorgeous original from a southern Alberta western artist whose work we\’ve been keenly attuned to lately, Karen Coe.
And, finally, a framed print of the photo which won the Western Horse Review 2013 photo contest, captured by amateur photographer, Holly Nicholl. How gorgeous would this look in your home?
These and a few other select pieces will all be auctioned off in the first few minutes of 2015 to benefit the Shannon Burwash Memorial Award. If you aren\’t familiar with this scholarship check out http://www.eslvet.ca/info.html for more information. Succinctly, the award is for students in any field of study with emphasis on the horse, agriculture, business, or equine veterinary medicine at an accredited Canadian post-secondary institution.
Each piece of art, western gear and donated item will sell with 100% of the proceeds going to the scholarship.
And, because we want to get the word out about this event, and put bums in those last few seats still available, we\’re giving away two tickets to the event.
Of course, you might want to secure your seats to this unique western-styled evening and that can be done by contacting organizer Ryan Smith at (403) 897-3787, or visit the event\’s Facebook page.
But, be sure to enter the contest too! All you have to do is let us know what your New Year\’s Eve plans are below in the comment section and we\’ll enter you in a draw to win two tickets. Even if you already have plans, I bet you can come up with two special people to gift these tickets to!
Good luck and perhaps we\’ll see you there!

Merry Christmas!!! Great blog! I would love to win tickets. So far, my only New Year’s Eve plan is to spend it at home with loved ones. Would be awesome to win some tickets and change those plans! 🙂
I have yet to have any plans and I always feel like a new year should be celebrated and enjoyed instead of just sitting at home. Thus, id love to win tickets – this would be quite a nice treat!
