Monet's Secret Garden Summer Gala 2017

In support of the Vancouver Art Gallery

The Vancouver Art Gallery's annual Summer Gala is one of the city's most prestigious fundraising galas, a unique celebration that brings together Canada's top art enthusiasts for an unforgettable evening of philanthropy. On June 16, 2017, the heart of Vancouver was transformed into a lush, floral paradise by three of Vancouver's top florists in celebration of the Gallery's summer feature exhibition: Claude Monet's Secret Garden. Hundreds of guests enjoyed an elegant evening of cocktails, a sumptuous Monet-inspired dinner and an exhilarating live auction of once-in-a-lifetime art experiences, in support of the Vancouver Art Gallery's exhibitions, education and public programs. As night fell, guests delighted in unique performances and danced away under the stars.
