Stay-At-Home Gala

Saturday, May 2, 2020, 7 to 9 p.m., online
Presented by Grand Bend Community Foundation and the Rotary Club of Grand Bend

  • Connect, unite and nourish community.
  • Raise funds to support the most vulnerable during the COVID-19 crisis

Social distancing at its finest, this first-of-its-kind event will include all the familiar elements: dinner (if you choose), game-changing speakers, entertainers, musicians, and much more, all online. The first hour, from 7 to 8 p.m. will feature local entertainers and speakers, featuring  Michael Vanhevel, “this generation’s Frank Sinatra.” For the second hour, we’ll join a star-studded Canada-wide live stream. Headliners include Hockey great Hayley Wickenheiser, TV personality Erin Cebula, Lane Merrifield of “Dragon’s Den,” Globe and Mail health reporter Andre Picard, Indigenous advocate Chief Gibby Jacob, and performers Once a Tree and Tanika Charles.  

All proceeds will stay in our community to help people who need it most. To buy tickets go to

So, don your finest (and your bunny slippers), and join local emcees Paul Ciufo and Jennifer Mossop for a night of togetherness, apart.
