Gold Heart Gala

Join us for an evening of elegance at Variety’s Gold Heart Gala

Variety – the Children’s Charity has a tradition of honouring a philanthropist each year for their work in the community and for Variety. This year at the Gold Heart Gala we are proud to be honouring two people who are philanthropic leaders in the community: Bob and Barbara Stewart. The gala, chaired by Mary Zilba, promises to be an evening of elegance, live entertainment and indulgent auctions, all to benefit kids with special needs in our community.

Our Auction Website is Live!

Including priceless artwork “Hollyburn Ferry” created by Benjamin Lumb, our silent auction boasts a selection of experiences and packages to indulge in. Don’t wait until the Gala to start bidding, make a bid no matter where you are by visiting our silent auction website. Even if you aren’t attending the event, you can support Variety and win some great experiences and packages!

About Bob & Barbara

A former Chief of the Vancouver Police Department, Bob served as Variety’s Chief Barker in 1994, 1995, 1996, 2007 and 2008. Barbara was Variety’s first woman Chief Barker and pioneered Variety’s hugely successful Gold Pin program that was launched in 1991. They have both contributed to Variety in many ways through time, talent and treasure. Their passion for improving the lives of children is a global inspiration.
