The Mission Possible Gala

The 2023 Mission Possible Gala took place on November 29 at the Fairmont Waterfront! 

With the help of our Gala partners and supporters, we were able to soar past our goal of $275,000, raising a total of $307,792 for our Employment Readiness Program.

We would not be able to do this without them, as well as our auction item donors, staff, and volunteers, so we would like to express our deepest gratitude!

The Mission Possible Gala brings together Mission Possible associates, caring community leaders, industry experts and dedicated supporters to celebrate our  achievements, recognize program participants, and hear stories of transformation.

Event Highlights Include:

  • Momentum Awards Presentations
  • Plated Three-Course Meal
  • Live Entertainment
  • Live Auction
  • Week - Long Online Silent Auction
