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.

After carrying out the “Emergency Support When You Need It Most” fundraising campaigns in 2020 and 2021, the Red Cross is pleased to return to hosting this exclusive event, with the theme “Empowering Our Communities”. Business leaders and representatives are invited to attend the Red Cross’ largest fundraising event in Canada*.
