We’ve waited four decades to celebrate like this.

The Cheers to 40 Years Gala is an adult-only night that promises cocktails, conversation, and canapés.

The evening’s shenanigans will include:

  • Taste a World of Flavours: Enjoy delicious canapés and appetizers from Devour Catering
  • Toast to 40 years: Try the signature cocktail or other drinks at the cash bar
  • Walk down memory lane: Experience CA’s Archive
  • Make new memories: Visit the photo booth
  • Bust a move: Show off your best dance moves grooving to a live DJ

Food and beverage provided by Devour Catering and Willow Park Wines & Spirits.
