Event description

Description

On Thursday, May 2, 2019, the Sexual Assault Centre of Edmonton (SACE) will be hosting its 6th annual fundraising and awareness gala in the beautiful Hall D at the Edmonton Convention Centre (previously the Shaw Conference Centre.)

We invite you to join us for an evening of fine dining and exceptional entertainment by Titilope Sonuga, featuring Keynote Speaker Pierre Asselin and Emcee Danny Hooper. All funds raised from this event will go directly towards providing essential support for people and communities impacted by sexual violence. Let’s move forward together.



More About Pierre Asselin

Edmonton lawyer and anti-sexual violence advocate, Pierre Asselin, made headlines in recent years when he successfully fought to have a publication ban removed from his identity so he could speak out about his experiences of childhood sexual abuse.

At We Believe: Let’s Move Forward Together, Pierre will be drawing on his personal experiences as well as his pro bono work with those who have experienced sexual assault, to deliver a unique perspective on how we can work together to support survivors as they navigate the criminal justice system.



More About Danny Hooper

Danny Hooper knew at an early age that his passion was in the entertainment world. In the decades since, he has parlayed his unique personality and sense of humour into an award-winning career and thousands of on-stage performances as a recording artist, motivational speaker, comedic emcee, and celebrity benefit auctioneer.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

We'll have a guest list with your name so there is no need to bring your ticket, but having an electronic or printed ticket may speed up the check in process.

Will a tax receipt be provided for my ticket purchase?

Unfortunately, we are unable to issue tax receipts for gala tickets because the ticket price covers the cost of the event and thus does not qualify as a donation. Donations made at the gala will be issued a tax receipt following the event.

Tax receipts can be issued for donors who purchase the "Donate-A-Ticket" option on behalf of another individual to attend the event. (Recipients of donated tickets will be at the discretion of the event organizers.)
