Gala raises funds to provide care for children with life-threatening illnesses across B.C. and the Yukon
Donors, partners, sponsors, and supporters of Canuck Place will come together for a spectacular night to raise funds for pediatric palliative care for children and families across B.C. and the Yukon.
This year's Gift of Time Gala is hosted by Global BC’s Sonia Sunger and features an exceptional dinner, exciting live and silent auctions, moving entertainment, including youth performers from the MEI Screaming Eagles Marching Band and ShowStoppers, and dancing with DJ Marvel. Gala attendees will also be introduced to Canuck Place parents Erin and Federico Angel, who will share their family’s story and care experience at Canuck Place.
The in-person event at the Parq Vancouver is sold out but there are still spots available for the virtual broadcast available for guests in the comfort of their homes. For those who wish to watch the virtual livestream, registration is still open.
