Annual Gala Dinner & Auction
Lifetime Networks regrets to announce that the 17th Gala, Dinner and Auction will be postponed until further notice.
This event forms the bulk of Lifetime Networks’ fundraising each year. If you would like to support people with diversabilities in the community, please donate directly to Lifetime Networks today. We will have more fundraising events for you to participate in soon!
The 16th Annual Lifetime Networks Gala Dinner & Auction was a resounding success! Our Gala Dinner and Auction took place at the Delta Ocean Pointe Resort on June 15th, 2019 from 6:00 – 10:30 pm.
Year after year, this event proves to be a major fundraiser for Lifetime Networks
(Registered Charity # 873 660 625 RR0001) and an annual highlight for those who attend.
We were pleased to again have MAX Furniture and The Wilson’s Group join us as our Co-Title Sponsors and to have had Country Grocer step up again to sponsor our dinner!
Thank you sincerely to all of our generous supporters for continuing to make our Gala and Auction possible.
Gifts from our sponsors are instrumental in our ability to achieve our mission: to foster networks of friendship and support for people with diversabilities to enhance community.

The DeviANTs are a self-named musical theatrical comedy troupe that rose out of Lifetime Network’s Drama Club program. Featuring adult artists with developmental disabilities, they have been creating and performing for the last 2 years and will present completely original songs and sketches created over the last 4 months.
They also performed as a majority of the cast of “The Great Big Show” at the McPherson Theatre in February 2018. The show was an enormous hit, selling over 1000 tickets and changing audience’s perceptions of people with diversabilities.
The DeviANTs’ production, “Journey to Breakfast Sandwich Island,” was performed on Friday, May 10, 7:00 pm at the Langham Court Theatre.
“Santa’s Sick Seasonal Spectacular,” was onstage at the Langham Court Theatre. November 29 at 7 pm, and November 30 at 2 pm.
A YouTube Live performance by the troupe took place on May 15, 2020 at 7 pm! The show will still be available to watch after the live performance! Please email info@LNV.ca for the link.
Join with the Lifetime Networks family, Best Buddies, social groups and many others for a wild evening of singing, fun, and ice cream!
The last karaoke rocked with over 100 participants, some great singing, some enthusiastic singing, and loads of laughs!
