The Grocery Foundation’s Night to Nurture virtual gala took place on January 29. 

Originally, the event was a hybrid one and include live VIP viewing parties at the Metro Convention Centre with a concurrent live event in Vancouver and virtual viewing parties but ongoing pandemic concerns and restrictions resulted in the event becoming a full virtual evening. More than 2,700 people attended the event.

Shaun McKenna, The Grocery Foundation executive director, says the event raised $1.9 million. 

“We’re extremely grateful for the grocery industry’s support in this, our second year of having to pivot to a virtual format. The support means so much to Canadian children and youth in these times of increasing need. We’re hopeful that we will be able to return to an in-person format next year.”

Here’s a look at the variety show entertainment, which featured illusionist Darcy Oake, musicians Tim Hicks & Friends, and comedian Gerry Dee.
