Cruising for the Arts

Confederation Centre of the Arts is pleased to announce that long-time Centre supporter Lori Ronahan has won The Viking Cruise for the Arts Lottery. Ronahan and a guest will be heading on an eight-day Danube or Rhine river cruise provided by Viking River Cruises Canada sometime this year.


Ronahan’s name was drawn on December 21, 2017 at a sold-out Matt Andersen performance where she happened to be in the audience. On her way into the show, Ronahan had purchased a lottery ticket to support the Centre’s arts education programs. We can attest to the fact that she was extremely surprised, pleased and excited when her name was announced as the winner of a Viking River Cruise.

Congratulations to Ronahan and a huge thank you to Stewart Travel and Viking who generously contributed the prize trip. And thanks to everyone who purchased tickets to help the Centre continue its excellent arts education programming.

All those who were not quite so lucky as Ronhan are invited to learn more about our supporting companies and where fundraising dollars are invested at the Viking Cruise Cultural Exchange information night with Stewart Travel on March 1. Reception is at 6:30 p.m. in Memorial Hall with presentations beginning at 7:00 p.m.

Please RSVP by emailing Travis Stewart or call 902.894.9389. Deadline to RSVP is February 26.

Support the Arts Win a Cruise

Confederation Centre is offering an exciting new way to support arts programming at the Centre this fall. The Viking Cruise for the Arts Lottery offers a major prize consisting of a trip for two on a European river cruise by Viking River Cruises Canada, and two return economy air tickets from Charlottetown Airport supplied by Stewart Travel Group.

viking-oceans-viking-star-exterior-galleryTickets may be purchased at a cost of $100 (or three for $250) between Friday, October 27 and Thursday, December 21, 2017 and to be entered to win the trip of a lifetime. Only 300 tickets will be sold.

“We’re proud to support Canadian cultural organizations such as Confederation Centre that align with our goal to create special connections between travellers and the cultures of the world,” says Viking’s Director of Business Development, Josephine Lynch. “Our river cruises feature many rich cultural experiences, so we saw this as a perfect fit.”

Travis Stewart of PEI-based Stewart Travel Group brought the opportunity to Confederation Centre along with the supplemental offer to provide airfare to the winner.

“We have always been impressed with Confederation Centre’s contribution to the Island community,” says Stewart, “and providing air means the trip will be accessible to any ticket holder.”

Lottery tickets may be purchased in person at the Confederation Centre of the Arts Box Office (corner of Queen and Grafton streets in Charlottetown), by telephone at 1-800-565-0278, and online at confederationcentre.com/lottery. Online purchasers must have a valid Prince Edward Island address.

The grand prize is an eight-day Danube or Rhine river cruise provided by Viking River Cruises Canada, and includes two return economy air tickets provided by Stewart Travel Group to a value of $1200 per person. Total prize value is approximately $12,000.

Funds raised will help support youth programming in visual and performing arts, development of new theatre works, and the enhancement of heritage programming – all vital activities for Canada’s national living monument to the Fathers of Confederation.
