Event description
The Hot Potato Initiative is delighted to invite the youths of Vancouver to its third annual fundraiser gala.

About this Event

The Gala

On Saturday October 12th, the third annual fundraiser gala for The Hot Potato Initiative will take place in the rustic Gastown industrial area, a mere 12 minute walk from Waterfront Station.

A social evening of live music, networking, and beverages/refreshments for high school students, The Hot Potato Gala will also feature a thought-provoking speaker series surrounding Vancouver's controversial homelessness crisis. Attendees will be given an intimate opportunity to explore the underlying sources and social symptoms of chronic poverty through gripping firsthand accounts.

Furthermore, students will also have the chance to learn more about The Initiative itself, our mission to destigmatize homelessness (including the why and the how), and how they themselves can take action and get involved.

The dress code will be cocktail/semiformal.
