"Arts Umbrella is thrilled to host the 35th annual Splash, where guests will discover awe-inspiring artworks by some of the most celebrated artists in Vancouver and the province," says Paul Larocque, President & CEO of Arts Umbrella. "Support of Splash will empower young people to pursue their passions with life-changing arts programming."

The spectacular event will take place at the Fairmont Hotel Vancouver, with CBC news personalities Gloria Macarenko and Fred Lee hosting the evening, and live performances by the Arts Umbrella Dance Company and Musical Theatre Troupes. Leading the coveted live auction will be Canadian multimedia contemporary artist, curator, and cultural leader, Hank Bull.
 
In celebration of the 35th anniversary, Arts Umbrella will also host an after party following the Live Auction, where guests will dance the night away to the musical stylings of DJ Chloe. 
 
The evening is made possible through the generous support of presenting sponsor TD Bank Group. Arts Umbrella is also pleased to be partnering with luxury jewellery brand David Yurman this year, who will provide a stunning signature raffle piece.
