Heart to Heart at Home - What is a "virtual gala"?
Social distancing at its finest! Our Heart to Heart at Home 2021 virtual gala will host an online program of engaging speakers, great entertainment, talented musicians and a silent auction (https://giving.trellis.org/heart-to-heart-at-home/auction).
Wear your best gala clothes, or your coziest loungewear- whatever suits you! Simply click the "tickets" button to buy a ticket online, log in and enjoy the show from the comfort of your home.
This year, more than ever, we need your support. The pandemic has caused a significant increase in demand for our services, and we just can't keep up!
Every dollar will go towards providing therapy to the people reaching out, so that they don't have to wait a year to begin to get help, restore their hope, and heal.
Entertainment for the Evening
Special music by multi award-winning Canadian singer-songwriter, pianist and CBC Music national radio host
Special dance and fiddle performance by local award-winning fiddle player, and accomplished classical musician and dancer
Speed painting for auction created by local artist

If you would normally purchase 2 tickets to our live event at $100.00 each, consider purchasing 10 tickets for $20.00 and have your friends and family join you!
A charitable tax receipt for the full amount of the ticket price will be provided.
