What if…? Gala 2018
Celebrating the Promise & Power of Women

November 05 | The Eglinton Grand | Toronto

We are excited to announce our 2nd annual What if…? Gala and hope that you can join us for an intimate evening of music and inspiration to recognize and celebrate women throughout the world.

This year War Child Founder Dr. Samantha Nutt will be joined by award winning artists Sarah Harmer, Chantal Kreviazuk, comedian Sandra Shamas, best selling author, Rupi Kaur, ET Canada Host Sangita Patel, and other strong female voices.

All proceeds will benefit War Child’s humanitarian programs in support of women and children living with war at a time when the organization’s work is so critically needed.

Last year’s inaugural event, featuring Sarah McLachlan, Ruth B., Chantal Kreviazuk, and ET Canada’s Sangita Patel, was supported by female icons like Margaret Atwood, Madame Sophie Gregoire Trudeau, Sarah Harmer, Denise Donlon, actresses Catherine Reitman, Sheila McCarthy, Tara Spencer-Nairn and many others.  The successful sold out event raised $425,000 for the vulnerable women and children we support.

We are excited to build on this momentum and look forward to celebrating with you on November 5!
