The Tune In To YES Annual Gala is a major fundraiser for the organization, and Director of Communications Kathy Slotsve told me that they are delighted to be hosting an in-person fundraising 2021 Gala – after a virtual event in 2020. “We are soooo happy to back with a live event this year. We have a 1920s theme planned at the Bord’Elle Eatery and Bar in Old Montreal. We’ll have aerial circus performers, cool canapés and cocktails – and we’re asking people come with their best costumes, since we’re only five days from Hallowe’en.”
