The Canadian Red Cross helps people and communities across Canada and around the world, contributing to their resilience-building efforts. The donations raised during the annual fundraising event will be used to train volunteers and to support the provision of essential services to people affected by a disaster: comfort, lodging, hot meals, new weather-appropriate clothing, personal hygiene items and products for children. This gift of humanity is made possible thanks to the generosity of volunteers and donors like you.

This humanitarian event, which has become a mainstay of the fundraising scene, raises an average of over a million dollars a year to support the Red Cross’ mission to help those who need it, when they need it most. The gala continues a longstanding tradition of fundraising events organized by the various National Societies of the Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement around the world.
