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.
