Join us at The Dram for an evening of discovery and sophistication in support of our youth education programs.


You’ll enjoy unlimited drams of whisky from distilleries around the world, including Canada, Scotland, and Japan, and taste local craft spirits and beer. Custom cocktails will be served, and delectable creations by one of Vancouver’s most celebrated Middle Eastern restaurants—Jamjar—savoured.


In between sips, you’ll be treated to jazzy tunes by Joel Flynn—aka Dr. Goulet—and Eddie Lam ‘Halen’ while you peruse our silent auction, featuring a 3-day Whistler vacation with gift certificates to Scandinave Spa and a voucher for table service at Tommy Africa’s Nightclub, tickets to see acclaimed musicians Daymé Arocena and Roberto Fonseca at the Chan Centre for the Performing Arts, an artwork by esteemed Vancouver artist Richard Tetrault, and much, much more.


Ticket holders receive a tax receipt for 75% or more of their ticket value.
