Igniting the Spirit Gala 2020


In light of the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, Wabano’s Gala, usually held in June to celebrate National Indigenous Peoples Day, has been re-imagined. Instead of one large gala, we will be holding four “mini-galas” in October 2020. The theme of these four mini-galas will be connection. We will be creating a unique, intimate, cultural experience that aligns to safety standards, while providing the opportunity for people to re-connect to one another.

Dates: October 2020 (actual days still being determined based on Elder availability)
Time: 5:00 to 8:30pm
Place: Wabano Centre for Aboriginal Health, Grand Gathering Space

Don’t delay, tickets and sponsorship opportunities sell out fast!

(Note that all sponsorship levels include 8 tickets and company signage at your table)
