An important announcement regarding the 6th annual VINEart Gala


After a lot of consultation with our team, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the VINEart Gala Auction, scheduled for Saturday, March 14, 2020.

At this moment, our highest priority is the health and well-being of our guests, sponsors, volunteers and staff from both the YWCA and Fairmont. Following increased concerns about the COVID-19 virus, we felt this was the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation.

The online auction has been discontinued for the time being.

The raffle for two tickets with Air Canada will continue, and we have extended the draw date to March 31, 2020.

Guests and sponsors will be contacted for followup and provided with more details regarding ticket reimbursements, donations, and the auction.

As we navigate the impact of COVID-19 and market challenges, we will continue to keep focused on supporting people in the Bow Valley who are vulnerable and need our supports even more during this time.

Thank you for your support and confidence in our organization.
