In this time of crisis, we reflect with gratitude.

A difficult decision was made by the ten members of the Crystal Gala Foundation. We gathered via conference call to discuss the way forward. We have decided to postpone the 2020 Crystal Gala until October 2021. We know many of you in the business community are suffering. We know long-time sponsors and donors, unwavering and unfailing in your support are today uncertain about a future that two months ago looked entirely different. Out of respect for you we will simply thank our community for everything you have so willingly given.

We also know that our community is resilient and together we will see a better day.

Please be safe, be well and know that we at the Crystal Gala Foundation look forward to seeing you soon. We will come together and laugh, hug and dance in celebration of being together again at the 22nd Crystal Gala, graciously presented by Summit Brooke Construction.

If you would like to further support the Crystal Gala foundation you can become a sponsor, volunteer or provide donations to our live or silent auction. For more details please contact us at

Elegant. Exciting. Eventful. 

The Crystal Gala—your Crystal Gala—has built a reputation as the most elegant and exciting fundraising event in Abbotsford and surrounding areas of the Fraser Valley. Elaborate décor, decadent meal service, and engaging entertainment are always on the evening’s agenda:

  • Guests are greeted with a Crystal Gala themed reception drink and appetizers
  • Silent auction and/or marketplace and games for pleasure throughout the evening
  • A multi-course gourmet plated dinner is served, with wine
  • Live auction excitement after dinner
  • Entertainment and dancing until the wee hours

The Crystal Gala Foundation is based in Abbotsford, BC, but serves the people of the Fraser Valley, from Surrey and Langley to Abbotsford, Chilliwack, and Hope to Harrison Hot Springs, Agassiz, Mission, and Maple Ridge.

The Foundation, made up of a group of dynamic women from all walks of life, meets monthly around a kitchen table, but achieves boardroom results. These women have one goal in mind: raise money to help promote and achieve breast health and support the women and families who suffer the effects of breast cancer.
