An Annual Celebration

A significant fundraising event that helps us equip students with the necessary opportunities and materials required for an exceptional education is our Annual Urban Academy Gala. The parent-run Gala Committee plans an exciting evening event in April that truly is helping us to build our dream. Over 250 parents and community members join us for dinner, entertainment, live and silent auctions and the always anticipated student art showcase.

We wish to thank everyone who has supported our gala to date through the purchase of tickets, sponsorship and auction item donations. It is with regret, but no surprise given the reality we are facing as a global and regional community, that we have taken the decision to cancel the Urban Academy gala event as planned that was due to be held in April. We have been so encouraged by our community’s desire to support Urban Academy’s biggest annual fundraiser over the last 19 years and we know that that support will carry over into our 2021 gala event.

For now, we do not know what the 2020 gala event will look like, but we will be in touch in the coming weeks to share information as we create a plan.

From the bottom of our hearts, thank you for your on-going support of this Urban Academy fundraiser.

The Urban Academy Gala Committee.


Special thanks to our generous sponsors who are helping bring our gala to life this year:

Live Auction Items

Our Gala Procurement Team is currently gathering items for the silent and live auction portions of the event. Do you have tickets to shows or sporting events? Perhaps a timeshare in Mexico or a condo in Whistler that you could contribute for a weekend? Or other fun experiences or items to donate to the auction? If so, donation forms will be coming out with the Friday email soon, or if you'd like to talk to our wonderful team please email gala@urbanacademy.ca to connect and share your ideas.


Does your company sponsor community events, or support non-profit initiatives? If so, sponsorship opportunities are also part of the Urban Academy Gala. Sponsorship levels start at $1,000 and can offer many opportunities for company exposure and other benefits of the event. If you are interested in learning more about possibly sponsoring the Gala or would like more details with regard to these opportunities, please email marketing@urbanacademy.ca.
