Night of New Beginnings at Covenant House

Comments 2 by Rebecca Bollwitt

The Night of New Beginnings at Covenant House is a fundraising gala that will kick off their “30 days for 30 nights” campaign. This initiative aims to raise enough to fund the shelter’s operations for the entire month of December.

Covenant House Vancouver exists for those young people for whom there is often no one else — young people aged 16 – 24 who have either willingly fled physical, emotional and/or sexual abuse or those who have been forced from their homes.

In order to run Covenant House’s shelter for their single busiest month of the year they’re looking to raise $200,000. This will cover day to day operations for their 54 bed crisis centre.

Primarily privately funded, Covenant House relies on the generosity of over 50,000 individuals and organizations to provide shelter, food, clothing and counselling to over 2,000 young people each year.

Tickets for the Night of New Beginnings gala on November 26th are $75 and the event will take place at Birks downtown from 5:00pm – 8:00pm. Elaine Lui (LaineyGossip) will be the master of ceremonies as you enjoy hors d’oeuvres and cocktails while bidding on silent auction items.

Contact Shelley Holmes by phone (604) 482-5131 or email Shelly.Holmes[at] for more information and to purchase your tickets.
