2017 GALA

The passion, power and generosity of generations came together at the inaugural Face the World Today Gala, hosted on May 13th by Jacqui Cohen and Kasondra Cohen-Herrendorf.

Young philanthropists and up-coming influencers focused on affecting change joined with an established force of business, community and social leaders who have shaped and lead Vancouver’s charitable giving for decades. It was a room filled with Angels.

The results were simply… extraordinary!

Guests dined on incredible cuisine by Hawksworth, sipped beautiful bubbles from Tattinger, laughed and danced the night away, poolside.

And when it came time to give, hands were held high and the generosity flowed. Art and adventure topped the list for both the Live Auction and Silent auctions. Balloons chock full of treats, a raffle and the inspirational Auction for Cause garnered top dollar.

Almost one million dollars was raised to support smaller, local organizations focused on providing abused children, battered women, the hungry, the homeless, seniors and youth with a brighter future.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

It was a party with purpose indeed! #partywithpurpose #FTWT2017

Face The World would not be possible without the generous support of our favourite local businesses and brands. We thank you!
