Early Bird Draw - Deadline Midnight January 31st! 

Order your tickets before the deadline and be entered into the Early Bird Draw! The winner of the room at Delta Hotels by Marriott Winnipeg the night of the Gala doesn't have to worry about a designated driver. Dance until the lights come on and head to your beautiful room. AND... who doesn't want a case of wine? Tickets can be purchased on-line at or call the Chapter office at 204.775.8625.

2020 Gala Cocktail Hour  

Cocktail hour begins at 6:00 pm! Start your evening with a cocktail or two from our wonderful sponsors!  We are never disappointed with our returning favourites Lifford Wine & Spirits and Aqua Vitae Filia. We feature local companies by welcoming back Little Brown Jug Brewing Company and are looking forward to Capital K Distillery joining the event. Get there early to enjoy the offerings and peruse the amazing prizes!  

Manitoba Liquor Mart 2020 Wine Sponsor 

Thank you to Manitoba Liquor Mart for supporting the Chapter by returning as the 2020 Wine Sponsor. We look forward to experiencing the pairings selected for each course! It is an excellent opportunity to try something new or enjoy something familiar. Many of our Gala guests have discovered a new favourite over the years.

2020 Guest Chefs

We have an impressive group of chefs preparing the Gala's six course meal. We are pleased to have Chef Scott Bagshaw join the team for 2020. How will they put a modern interpretation on classics from the 1920's? We can't wait to find out! Watch the Gala website for the menu!
Do you have a food allergy or a food restriction? Be sure to tell us about it on your ticket order form. The chefs ensure that everyone enjoys a fabulous meal! 

Dance to The Solutions 

The after dinner dance features The Solutions! The Solutions are a Winnipeg based funk/soul/R&B cover band, known for their high energy, feel-good performances. An 8-piece band featuring vocal powerhouses Sol “Mama Sol” James and Todd Martin, The Solutions have earned a reputation as one of Winnipeg’s hottest party bands since their debut in 2007. With a repertoire including (but not limited to!) tunes by Sam & Dave, Aretha Franklin, James Brown, Etta James, the Ides of March, the Isley Brothers, and Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, they are sure to get the dance floor rocking!

Can you support the Chapter with a Prize?   

The 2020 Gala Committee is hard at work planning this year’s event and March 14th is coming up fast! The Gala Dinner is the Chapter’s major fund raiser of the year and the success of the evening is very important to all of us who access programs and services.

As we work towards having the most amazing selection of prizes for our guests, we are asking Chapter Members to help. The prizes have been very successful in generating thousands of dollars each event; over $8,000 at the 2019 Gala. We hope that this year might include group prizes from Chapter families or their workplaces. If you are willing to ask for a prize on behalf of the Chapter, we can provide you with a letter.  

Examples of prizes packages we would offer our guests include gourmet food/coffee/chocolate baskets, tickets for sporting events, entertainment gift certificates, beauty products for both gals and guys and various electronics are just suggestions. Please know that all gala donations are appreciated at any level but if the donation is significant, it will be displayed as a stand-alone prize.

Support Tickets

If you are unable to attend the 2020 Gala Dinner but would like to show your support for the Chapter and our important work, please consider making a donation or purchase a Support Ticket through CanadaHelps.
