The Grocery Foundation’s annual Night to Nurture Gala is going all virtual because of concerns around the ongoing pandemic. The event will be held on January 29, 2022.
In October, Shaun McKenna, executive director of The Grocery Foundation, had announced a hybrid event that would consist of some in-person VIP viewing parties at the Metro Convention Centre with concurrent live events in cities across Canada, and virtual access to view the event from attendees’ homes.
“Unfortunately, due to the current COVID situation in Ontario and across Canada, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the in-person elements of the event and move ahead with a virtual-only gala,” says McKenna. “We know this is disappointing and that everyone was looking forward to a live, in-person event—as were we. It still promises to be a great night with the ability to host a virtual table and help nurture Canadian children at a time when they desperately need it.
