About this event

Using best practices and learning from past virtual and live Galas, this session will provide attendees with tangible takeaways that they can implement within their 2021 Gala planning. Learn from a recent case study where a charity raised 230% over their fundraising goal and had more attendees than ever before. We'll also hear from the Executive Director of an organization that was one of the first Lower Mainland organizations to successfully move their in-person Gala to a virtual one in April 2020.
