2024 Gala Dinner

EEYouth Gala

Our inaugural Gala Dinner was an extraordinary success, leaving everyone who attended with a profound sense of community spirit. The fundraising effort on the night will help us provide our Coach 2 Cope program to over 300 local families and help build capacity in our community to support the mental health and wellbeing of our youth.

From the inspiring speeches to the generosity of our sponsors, the evening was a testament to the power of coming together for a cause.

A special thank you goes to Craig Hamilton, whose guest speech was a highlight of the evening, our youth ambassador Kiara Want, who bravely shared her lived experience, and to our incredible ambassador Kurt Gidley. Kurt’s presence added a special touch to the evening, and his support for our cause and strong advocacy for youth mental health is inspiring.

A Shoutout to Our Sponsors

The success of the Gala Dinner would not have been possible without the generous contributions of our sponsors. A massive shoutout goes to Adam and Belinda MacDougall and their MacDougall Foundation, our platinum sponsor, whose additional donations significantly boosted the fundraising effort. Their commitment to charity is enormous and we’re very fortunate to have their support.

We also want to recognize our silver sponsor, Protech, and our bronze sponsors, Ranbuild and Peibri Place. Their support played a crucial role in making the event a triumph. Thank you!

This year’s Gala Dinner marked the launch of what we hope will become an annual tradition. The overwhelming success of the event and the positive feedback from attendees have set a high bar for future gatherings. We are already looking forward to inviting everyone back next year for another evening of celebration, inspiration, and community.

We are immensely grateful to everyone who attended, contributed, and made the event a night to remember.

Thank you for your support, and we can’t wait to see you all next year!
