Please email to join the event waitlist.

YWCA Banff’s biggest fundraiser of the year, the VINEart Gala and Auction happening on Saturday, March 16th, 2024 at the Fairmont Banff Springs. This highly anticipated event features delicious food and wine pairings, inspiring art and entertainment, and an exceptional live and silent auction!

Proceeds from VINEart benefit YWCA Banff’s residential programs including our emergency shelter, transitional housing, affordable housing, and counselling services. A portion of funds will support our Higher Ground Project, our plan to build a new facility in Canmore to increase our capacity to deliver services across the Bow Valley.

Over the past few years, the need for YWCA Banff’s services skyrocketed. From 2020 to 2023, our crisis calls increased by 127%. Last fiscal year we provided over 1,400 safe emergency bed nights to folks in the Bow Valley experiencing violence, housing insecurity, or both. Thanks to the generosity of donors like, you, we can continue providing these critical services to the Bow Valley community.

Frequently Asked Questions

Thank You, Sponsors

The difference in my emotional state from the time I arrived, to the time I left, was a full circle. It was so wonderful to have a clean, quiet, safe place to heal, but the thing I appreciate the most was having the counsellors to speak to. You truly changed my life for the better, now and for the future.
