Canadians are encouraged to dress in their finest clothes for a night of entertainment for a Canada wide Stay at Home Gala.
On May 2nd, more than 20 cities across the country will connect online. The Stay at Home Gala will host renowned speakers like André Picard, Canada’s top health and public policy observer, along with music and entertainment from Canadian artists such as Juno Award and Polaris Prize-nominated singer Tanika Charles.
The national broadcast is available for all Canadians; while a growing list of cities will present their own local galas to bookend the national event.
The gala is the creation of Kelowna, British Columbia resident Drew Vincent who organized a similar event exclusive to Kelowna, which raised over $20 thousand in five days. COVID-19 changes our way of living,” Vincent says, “but it doesn’t change the Canadian spirit to rally during a time of need.”
The Gala’s have partnered with the Community Foundations Canada to direct all proceeds to community foundations across Canada.
