Victoria’s much-anticipated SHINE Gala event is back, gracing the halls of the historic Fairmont Empress in April.

On Saturday April 6th, this illustrious affair, a beacon of glamour and philanthropy, promises an unforgettable experience for attendees while supporting a noble cause.

As the red carpet rolls out, guests will be greeted by flashing cameras and a welcome glass of bubbly, setting the stage for an evening of opulence and elegance.

We’ve partnered with SHINE Gala event to give away two general admission tickets to one lucky winner—you’ll find those contest details below!

Guests will be guided through a mesmerizing showcase of high-end fashion, complemented by the enchanting illusions of magician Jason Verners.

The event boasts a sumptuous three-course dinner with wine service, tantalizing the palate amidst the excitement of the fashion extravaganza.

Beyond the runway, attendees can indulge in the thrill of silent and live auctions, offering exclusive treasures while raising vital funds for the BC Children’s Hospital.

Every bid and donation contributes to the hospital’s invaluable efforts in providing care for the province’s youngest and most vulnerable.

With its blend of style, generosity, and community spirit, the SHINE Fashion event exemplifies the best of Victoria’s social scene.
