VINEart Gala Auction
Fairmont Banff Springs
March 3, 2018

Thank you to our guests, sponsors & donors for supporting the 4th annual VINEart Gala Auction.

VINEart 2018 was a magical evening of performances and exceptional dining thanks to the Fairmont’s culinary team and the wine experts from Cellar Door. We are thrilled to announce that VINEart and the Air Canada and Fairmont-sponsored Beijing Raffle Experience raised a combined net total of $90,000. Thanks to your generous support, YWCA Banff can continue helping survivors of violence find safety and stability in the Bow Valley.

Each year, VINEart is an opportunity for us to celebrate our supporters, while raising the funds and awareness necessary to continue providing services that respond to and strive to end domestic violence in our communities. Proceeds from this year’s event will be dedicated to the ongoing development of Higher Ground – a purpose-built shelter and transitional housing program that will serve residents of the Bow Valley.

With you as our ally, we can continue to pursue our mission to shape a safe, inclusive community that empowers women and girls.

Stay tuned for more details on the 2019 VINEart Gala Auction.
