For the past 12 years, Shelter Them has held an annual Gala which has raised more than $150,000, with 100% of the proceeds directly supporting our program and initiatives. We rely heavily on the generosity of our donors and sponsors—every gift is making a difference! We invite you to join companies like LiUna local 183, Maia and Associates and MA Industrial Electric Inc. in helping us achieve our goals. The 2018 Gala will be held on Saturday, May 26th, 2018 at the Mandarin Garden and Convention Centre in Brampton. The Theme for this year’s Gala is "Happily Ever After". We will be focusing on how we can provide opportunities to every child so they can have hope for the future and live their “Happily Ever After”.

There are two ways you can help us to continue our work in Rwanda. First, an event sponsorship can be acquired at several levels, each with various benefits. (Please see the attached chart.) It is a great way to promote your business and support our work. Top sponsors have a feature table/display in the venue’s foyer. Second, you may also consider contributing an item or service to our silent auction. With 250+ attendees bidding the night away, it is an anticipated highlight and so much fun! Past auctions have included gift certificates, entertainment passes, small appliances, handyman services, art, fine jewelry and more. Donors’ names are attached to the auction items. Shelter Them is a registered charity, and tax receipts are issued for all sponsor/donation amounts (except for amounts associated with dinner).
