To say Mara and I are excited to be attending the Little Black Dress Gala would be a huge understatement. This event combines quite a few of our favourite things. Not only is it the perfect excuse to dress up, mingle, meet new friends and celebrate the arts in our city, but we also get to support a local charity.
Little Black Dress Gala
The 4th annual event is happening on Friday, November 25 at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver. This glamourous evening features musicians, dancers, artists, 20 local designers and a fashion show. In addition to entertainment, there will be opportunities to meet other socially conscious Vancouverites, influencers, politicians and educators. Most importantly, we’ll be raising funds to benefit programs within the Help Change My City Alliance.
Help Change My City
Launched in 2010, Help Change My City (HCMC) Alliance is a registered non-profit organization. The HCMC Alliance strives to empower young people through mentorship. Primarily, they assist youth in creating a sustainable future for themselves. More specifically, the Alliance helps youth advance their employment skills, build character and realize their true potential.
Secondly, the HCMC wants to create a ripple effect. Their vision is for young people to positively impact their communities by passing forward what they learn and sharing it with others.
In order to help fund their programming, The Little Black Dress Gala was born. LBD Gala is an extension of HCMC Alliance. More importantly, LBD gala supports programs directly benefiting youths in Metro Vancouver.
