Integra Air steps up for Arts on the EdgePosted: August 4, 2012

Whenever there’s an opportunity, Brent Gateman, president of Integra Air, loves to get out from behind his desk and pilot an aircraft.  Luck would have it that Brent was able to do that several weeks ago for a group of golf enthusiasts. He recently flew a charter to the Canadian Rockies  International Airport and spent the day enjoying Kimberley.

“The East Kootenays and Kimberley are breathtakingly beautiful. This is an area with rich potential for both recreational and business development,” he stated.

Luck would have it again. This time the Arts on the Edge 2012 Festival is the recipient. When Mountain City Travel approached Brent to co-sponsor a major silent auction item, to support this year’s Arts Festival, he jumped in.

“It has always been our philosophy that if we want the community to support us as a business, then we better be prepared to support the community. Like Mountain City Travel we are a locally owned and operated business and we’re both committed to the communities and the people we serve. Our mutual belief is to be part of making a better place for people to live, work and prosper,” Gateman said.

“Integra Airlines is thrilled to provide two roundtrip tickets, Cranbrook to Edmonton, valued at $1,100, for the Arts on the Edge Opening Gala.” This year’s Gala features a Juried Art Show and Silent Auction, which is a major fundraiser that supports and promotes the Kimberley arts community.  This year’s event takes place on Friday, August 10 from 7-10 p.m. at Centre 64 and will feature live music by The Jazz Council, a great new art exhibit, delicious food by Green Door Catering, and a cash bar. Tickets for the event cost $12.

Integra Airlines, and Mountain City Travel, encourages everyone to come out to the Gala on August 10. Be sure to check out the region’s artists, enjoy wonderful music and food, and bid to your heart’s content at the Silent Auction.
