UPCOMING EVENTS

UPCOMING EVENTS

2019 MacLaren Black Tie Gala


2019 MacLaren Black Tie Gala


April 12, 2019
6:30 pm – 1:00 am EST
The Carnegie Room
MacLaren Art Centre
37 Mulcaster Street
Barrie, Ontario
L4M 3M2


Devry Smith Frank LLP has supported the Maclaren black tie gala for the past number of years and continue the support as a Gold Sponsor for the event which will take place on April 12, 2019. The MacLaren Black Tie Gala raises $80,000 annually to directly support the MacLaren Art Centre’s programs for children and youth – at the gallery, in schools, and throughout the community. Each year, the MacLaren reaches more than 20,000 young people, including 7,400 children who take part in VanGo, a program offered across both school boards which brings regional artists into classrooms across Simcoe County for hands-on art experiences.

The Black Tie Gala plays a pivotal role in making it all possible. The Gala is held in the MacLaren’s Carnegie Room, perhaps the most beautiful event space in Barrie. One hundred and seventy guests attend, and more than two dozen local and regional businesses participate as sponsors. It’s always a really fun night, and inspired by this year’s theme of Braveheart, the dancing will no doubt carry on to the wee hours.
