On December 1st, we’re giving back to First United shelter residents and honouring their resilience by hosting our first Shelter Gala. First United residents will be treated to a special three-course meal provided by Robert Bartley, Executive Chef for Canucks Sports and Entertainment; messages of support from First United leadership and champions; and great entertainment.

We’re raising $50,000 for the Shelter Gala to meet the survival-needs that First provides to the broader Downtown Eastside community and continue our advocacy work to dismantle the systemic barriers faced by this community.

You can join us in making all of that possible. Purchase a seat or a table, or band together with your friends, family, congregations, and colleagues to raise funds for a group purchase.
