In celebration we would like to formally invite you to our 10th Anniversary Day of Pink Gala on April 8, 2015 at De La Salle High School (501 St Patrick Street, Ottawa) from 6:30-9:30PM.

- Kalyani Pandya (LGBTQ comedian & activist)

The gala is a free event. Our goal with the Gala is not to raise money, but to build community and celebrate the success of the divers work of so many people to make our community a safer place. As this is our 10th anniversary, this year’s Day of Pink Gala is particularly significant.
There will be hors d’oeuvres provided free of charge, and beverages will be available through a cash bar. We will also have a raffle and silent auction to help raise funds for the work we do.
Our VIPink guests will be provided free beverages throughout the night, priority seating during the award ceremony, and will have their name added to the VIPink exclusive raffle.
Jer’s Vision is always focused on our work in schools, as such, all proceeds made from this event are directed into our programming across Canada.
This is a fully accessible event, and childcare will be available.
Recommended dresscode: Semi-formal.
Thank you to our media sponsors, Daily Xtra and OutTV.
