On May 26th 2017 at the Grand Castle in the Heart of the City, Hotel Vancouver will open the doors to 1000 guests adorned in Suits and Little Black Dresses for this Gala. This time we have invited The Canadian Men In Suits to join us on the red carpet and the slogan is “Wear It For The Cause”.(

The Little Black Dress Gala is a community engaging fashion and fundraising platform held for Help Change My City non-profit organization. The aim of the event is to draw attention to established and emerging designers who are not only given to their craft but also have a heart for showcasing their style and ingenuity for positive social impact in Vancouver.

In support of the women in our community Help Change My City has set aside a certain number of tickets for single mothers and women in need. If you would like to sponsor one of these ladies to attend the Little Black Dress Gala, ‘Sponsor a Woman In Need’ tickets are available for $20. These women will be given their ticket, a donated black dress and shoes for the event.

The LBD Gala is a vibrant, inclusive environment. It welcomes socially minded guests, community influencers, diplomats, emerging leaders, government officials, educators, individuals from all types of professions and companies all in one place to make a difference in the lives of marginalized youth. The evening celebrates the city of Vancouver’s multiculturalism, performing arts, fashion, jazz music and the positive change that is happening in the lives of youth. Join us as we celebrate an evening of fashion, awards, cocktails, wine, auction and artistry. All are welcome.

Youth Patrons

Thank you Youth Patrons from Help Change My City Alliance and the The Little Black Dress Gala team. You have helped make a difference in the lives of unemployed youth in the city of Vancouver.  

Youth Patrons are individuals and companies that have purchased a 10 pack of tickets for their friends, employees or clients to attend The Little Black Dress Gala. In addition to the 10 tickets, a Youth Patron’s purchase also contributes to the employment of a youth and invites a teacher from the surrounding schools to attend the gala in appreciation for their hard work in educating our young people in the schools in Metro Vancouver.  We want to thank you for your generosity.

If you are interested in being part of the fall Youth Patrons please send us an email titled Youth Patron at  and our team will be glad to help you impact a life of an unemployed youth and an educator who has given to the success of students in our local schools.
