Since the start of the pandemic, we’ve seen so many businesses struggle, particularly our friends and colleagues in the events industry. But it’s also had significant financial implications for every sector from arts, finance, museums and non-profits, whose fundraising initiatives have typically relied on in-person events.

Very early on, we started working with our clients on adapting their live events to virtual galas, and realized that one way we could help guests feel connected was through food and drink. For us, catering has always been more than about feeding people – it’s about creating experiences and strengthening memories through shared meals.

Galas in a Box

Our Gala in a Box packages enable guests to feel like they are part of the same event at home – from being able to make a meal selection, to their orders arriving at their door in a beautifully branded package, to the first sip or bite. We work with clients to curate menu selections based on the theme of the event and appropriate budget.

We’re an event company at heart, and we think that you still want to create excitement to make it feel special for someone, and that starts with the delivery to their door, right down to the driver dressed in white gloves and little surprises arriving at the door. It goes onto opening the box, with the ribbon and the different types of paper. It’s really about engaging with people in every aspect, elevating the experience with every piece of it being meaningful.

Boxes can include a bottle of wine or prebatched cocktail, a selection of canapés, a grazing platter and dessert, or even a full 3 course dinner depending on the style of event. Just like an in-person event, your ticket sales can be split into multiple tiers, with different menu selections for each.

We’ve had great feedback so far from clients like the BC Women’s Foundation, Big Sisters BC, Audain Art Museum, the Dr Peter AIDS Foundation, Ballet BC, Arts Umbrella, Ronald McDonald House Charities and the BC Cancer Foundation and are honoured to have played a role in helping their organizations stay afloat during this difficult time.
