Our food trucks are preparing both meat and vegetarian options. While we may not be able to accommodate all allergens, we would like to know them! Some of our options are gluten free also. Contact Natalie if you would like to discuss this further.
You will get to see some of our amazing silent auction prizes in person. We’re also going to be selling keys for a mystery prize box onsite, and back by popular demand is a wine raffle. We’re really hoping to see everyone up and dancing!
After two years of virtual events, it's time to get together face-to-face!
This year, to welcome you back, it’s a new party atmosphere including a dance floor and lots of opportunities to gather with friends, old and new. Join us at the Infinity Convention Centre for a night of fun dining and wining (with some of the food & wine you’ve enjoyed the most), featuring your favourite local food trucks.
In its 10 years, our signature Gala has raised nearly 1 million dollars, helping us deliver free after-school and weekend recreational programs to children and youth from low-income households. Our STAR programs are now offered in six priority neighbourhoods at ten different locations, including soccer, basketball, hip-hop, hockey, martial arts, rock-climbing, cooking, art, STEM and more! Kids from 6 to 17 learn physical, emotional and social skills, thanks to you, our generous donors and sponsors.
We can’t wait to fundraise and party with you on November 24th ! Thank you so much for your support.
