Gala

THURSDAY OCTOBER 27th

2022

NORTH VAN CARES FOUNDATION

Our Largest Annual Fundraising Event in Support of the North Vancouver community
The Event

The North Van Cares Foundation Gala will be like nothing you’d attended before! Skeptical? We understand. That’s why the NVC Gala committee has created an event like no other! It’s not just a “get dressed up and dance your face off while raising money” thing. Nope! It’s an “experience" that will have the North Van community talking for years.

 

We don’t want to let all the cats out of the bag but, lets just say, there are a lot of cats (not real cats, no need for antihistamine) Buy your tickets today because it’s going to fill up VERY FAST!

What's Happening

The North Van Cares Foundation is excited to be hosting its, first ever, Fundraising Gala in support of the North Shore community.

When we first started this was not something we thought would be in our future but the popularity of NVC and watching how the community of North Van came together during the pandemic made us want to reward our amazing friends, family, neighbours and benefactors with a beautiful night out!

Gala Details

The event will be held at the Pipeshop in North Van’s super cool Shipyards district!

We have the best band, Greg from the Hairfarmers and special guests who will ensure this is a party to remember! 

Profits from this event will benefit:

- North Shore Rescue
- North Van Black Bear Society
- Backpack Buddies

- Lookout Shelter

What to Expect

Expect the unexpected! This isn't your usual fancy pants gala. Our committee has been working hard to bring you an experience like no other. 

Local artists and businesses from many different industries have been invited to, creatively, participate in what will be the most memorable night of the year!

Guests will enjoy complimentary appetizers/desserts, a silent auction, an amazing live auction and many, immersive, experiences (we can't tell you all the secrets!)
Don't get FOMO! Buy your tickets now. 

The Venue

Once known as the Pipe-fitters Building, where ships piping systems were constructed, the Pipe Shop Venue is an exquisite restored heritage building, perfect for the North Shore Foundation Gala.

The Entertainment

Greg from the Hairfarmers and special guest will be performing at the gala. As many of you, may or may not know, Doug had a wee accident and will not be grinding his ax for a few months. We will miss him greatly but have every confidence that Greg and his chosen partner will get everybody on the dance floor.

The MC

Andrew Bacon, or "Andy" to me is a spectacular Master of Ceremonies, A mis-spent young adult life spent in the Caribbean, hosting resort events and being the overall FUN CAPTAIN has given him the experience to be one of the most engaging, riotous (and hopefully not inappropriate) hosts I've ever had the pleasure to work with. 

 

Andy will keep the party going and keep you all in the loop with all the fun! 

In addition to being the life of the party, Andrew runs Whistle Ride rideshare in Whistler and Tofino! He's built the business from a fledgling idea into Whistler's go-to transportation option! He was recently nominated for Whistler's Innovative Business Owner award!
