March 18, 2017 – This was a truly special evening! Complete with magical performances, incredible cuisine prepared by the Fairmont Banff Springs culinary team, wine pairings selected by Cellar Door, and a live and silent auction filled with art, wine and food packages, the third annual VINEart Gala was an event to remember.

Thank you to our guests, sponsors, donors, advocates and supporters for making this event in support of the Bow Valley Women’s Emergency Shelter a success. We are delighted to share that this year’s event has raised $125,000! These funds will go towards supporting the day-to-day operation of the shelter, and supporting our plan to develop a purpose-built facility and associated services to meet the future needs of our Bow Valley Community.

Big thanks to the amazing Crista Lee Photography for being our photography sponsor and taking these beautiful pictures. 

VINEart continues to raise awareness in our community around the service and housing needs of vulnerable women and their children who seek safety and support to escape domestic violence and abuse. Proceeds from VINEart provide assistance for our existing shelter program as well as needed investment in our plan to develop a purpose-built facility and associated services to meet the future needs of our Bow Valley community.
