8th Annual KD Gala
Every year the Centre of Hope hosts the KD Gala in the Fall in honour of the Fort McMurray United Way during their annual fundraising drive. The KD Gala is well-known for its unique dinner where each dish is created with Kraft Dinner. Year after year our staff volunteer to create gourmet dishes out of KD, including Chicken Keema Kraft Dinner and our infamous KD Pizza.
The event hosts a live and silent auction as well as a chance to come out and learn a little bit about homelessness in our community. It is a great event and we expect between 150-200 people in attendance this year. Last year our 7th Annual KD Gala was a great success, and we were able to give back $13,500 dollars. Thank you to all the local businesses and individuals for your support!
If you are interested in getting involved with this year’s gala we are now collecting donations for silent and live auction items, including gift certificates, gift baskets, art and other products. So far our generous community has already donated several items, including glass art, paintings, a picnic back pack and even a helicopter tour! If you are interested in donating please contact our new Fundraising and Communications Coordinator Lisa Campbell for more information.
