Getting together to raise money for sick kids
The Grocery Gala is our annual black tie event for the three children's hospitals in Atlantic Canada, hosted each year on the eve of Mother's Day in Halifax.
Since 1999, the Gala has raised $6.5 million to fund patient care technology and programs that help children and their families. This years' one-day event raised a remarkable $306,000.
All proceeds are gifted to three recipient charities: CHU Dumont Hospital Foundation, Moncton; Janeway Children's Hospital Foundation, St. John's; and IWK Foundation, Halifax.
