17th Annual Conservation Gala


Credit Valley Conservation Foundation (CVCF) hosted its 17th Annual Conservation Gala, presented by 407 ETR on Thursday, October 12 at Lionhead Golf and Conference Centre in Brampton. The gala brought together over 330 guests who raised over $240,000.

Proceeds from this year’s gala support CVCF’s 10-year $10 million fundraising campaign to connect the Credit Valley Trail (CVT). The campaign was launched in November 2020 and is the largest fundraising project in the foundation’s history, raising $3.85 million to date.

Currently, 32 kilometres of the trail have been connected and events like the gala help raise the funds needed to connect the remaining 68 kilometres.

This year’s theme “Reflections of Conservation” was echoed throughout the night’s festivities. Guests were welcomed by Indigenous drummers and the gala featured a cocktail reception with food stations, live music, birds of prey display, a roaming magician, a photographic art display and silent auction.
