Night to Nurture Gala

About the Gala

Since 2000, the industry supported Night to Nurture Gala has raised $34,948,073.

The Night to Nurture Gala offers the grocery and food industry a unique opportunity to come together to make a significant, positive difference to children in Ontario. Funds raised through the Gala benefit organizations that nurture the whole child such as Kids Help Phone and breakfast programs in Ontario schools.

Whether ensuring kids have healthy and balanced meals, or providing youth with a compassionate and understanding ear when they need to talk, the Night to Nurture Gala has been making a difference in the lives of children for more than three decades.

The Gala evening features a cocktail reception where you can browse the Silent Auction, enjoy interactive entertainment and purchase a raffle ticket to win a new car! The highlight of the evening is the signature performance.Previous entertainers have included Bryan Adams, Michael Bublé, Nelly Furtado, Maroon 5, Kelly Clarkson and most recently OneRepublic.

The Grocery Foundation’s Night to Nurture Gala is Canada’s largest fundraising dinner in North America, annually raising close to $2,000,000 to help kids in need.
