After a year-long hiatus, the WAG’s premier fundraising gala returns, benefiting young people in our community. Thanks to amazing supporters like you, the Ball is now sold-out!

In honour of the Inuit art centre opening, this year’s event is named the Qaumajuq Ball.

Online Auction

Whether you’re attending or not, you can still get in on the online auction. The auction is open to all and will close the night of Sunday, October 17. Funds raised will make a difference to thousands of children who will, because of you, take part in fun, creative programming at WAG-Qaumajuq.
